It was pretty much turning over to rain and sleet and starting to get dark when I shot these, so...
I don't know if they do this anywhere else (I've never seen it), but NYC has all of its garbage trucks rigged so they can mount a plow. There are some trucks that are dedicated strictly as salt-spreaders and plows, but mostly, they use the garbage trucks. I think that's a pretty bright idea, so we don't end up with a massive fleet of trucks that sit around doing nothing 90% of the time.
And here's some damn cats. You're welcome!
