We complain about lackadaisical snow removal in 2011? Ha, ha, har. Imagine what it was like clearing the unpaved roads of New York City during the blizzard of 1888... shoveling horse-drawn carts full of the white stuff to be carried away. 1948... Better, but still no day at the races, as this snazzy taxi stuck on an icy street shows. Inset: December 2010.
