Welcome to the flipside of the great freeze-out of 2014 (hopefully it will be the only one). I was happy to act as directed by the mayor and stayed home from Sunday until Tuesday afternoon.

Our man living next to the Cultural Trail, Joe Smoker, took this photo of the machine that keeps the Cultural Trail clear of snow and posted it on Facebook:
Apparently this machine arrived more frequently than the street plows, and it makes good sense. One of Indy’s most valuable public assets is only good if it can actually be used by the public in all weather conditions, after all.
