Hat tip to Kathleen for alerting me to this one–I couldn’t make this stuff up, folks:
Frozen Sewage Piled Up in West Scranton–For Now
First sentence: “On top of their regular snow-clearing duties this week, Scranton officials are weighing what to do with chunks of frozen sewage piled up in the 300 block of North Garfield Avenue.”
Later in the article the phrase “glacier of sewage” appears. Ah, winter in Scranton.
(By the way, this is my 100th entry at Pennamite. “Glacier of sewage” was totally worth it.)
UPDATE: Kathleen sent along the latest news, which says that the “piles of frozen sewage” have been removed (taken to a landfill in Dunmore, of course). But the director of public works thinks the situation was overblown, because “It was really only mostly water.” Oh! And that smell will go away, “once we get a good rain.” Beautiful.
