Walking back from lunch today I came across some Downtown Improvement District workers updating the Information Kiosk on Weybosset street with a new graphic featuring the smiling image of a Clean & Safe Team member (aka Yellow Jackets). I forced one of the Yellow Jackets to pose for this photo, he was reluctant but smiled anyway.

The Good: Yellow Jackets
As always, the DID Clean & Safe Team workers were out in force today clearing snow. The Yellow Jackets are probably out of practice this year, but they got right back into the swing of things laying salt and clearing snow and slush out of the crosswalks.
The Bad: I didn’t know this was a parking lot
When plans for PPAC Square were unveiled I was under the impression that PPAC’s driveway would double as sidewalk space when there wasn’t any event happening at PPAC. Apparently I was wrong as the driveway was full of parked cars this afternoon. I don’t know who these cars belong to, but those are some sweet parking spaces they got.
The Ugly: National Grid doing their National Grid thing
No sooner has the paint dried on the double yellow lines than National Grid is out ripping up the pavement on Weybosset Street. This is not actually PPAC Square, it is down in front of Johnson & Wales, but close enough.
Let’s just assume that contrary to every other street National Grid has ever torn up, they will properly patch this street. I can assume that, right? RIGHT?
The DID Yellow Jackets have been working all week planting plants, hanging baskets, and generally making Downcity shine. Even in this heat!
Yay Yellow Jackets!
