South Philly has a proud tradition of reserving parking spots with useless junk like buckets, folding chairs, and plastic containers from 12 packs of 2-gallon Pepsi bottles. With a snowstorm, this practice snowballs, for lack of a better term. Well after much deliberation and a horrid 2 hour stuck-in-the-snow experience, we decided to trash-up and save a spot. We used a big metal coat rack from Ikea. Someone must have gotten wise because both our spot and our coat rack were stolen.
It's "fuck everyone else day" in South Philly and it's trash day.

It's a snow day in South Philly and it's trash day. But not really. They haven't collected our trash in two weeks.
