By noon next morning, most debris had already been tended to, most seemed back to normal. Here and there, out of the way you could find some fallen branches, some dirt from the rain dragged from the surrounding hills.
Public services were hard at work from first light to good into the night, Shovels, Brooms, Chainsaws, Bullhoe Loaders, and Dumbtrucks.
“Are we going to be in the newspaper?”
You’d think such exhausting work would take a toll on their mood, but they enthusiastically welcomed photos and posed as if professionally trained.
I’ve never been a fan of the government. I personally consider burocrasy to be lazy, slow, and inept.
This time I really have to hand it to them. They were out and on it before I even woke up.
Well organized and productive. By 11 am Médano beach was completely cleaned up. Most avenues, streets, and sidewalks were completely back in working order. The last time I checked in it was about 6 pm and Public Services was still out there tending to what debris left aside.
On my way back I saw the navy out shoveling the dirt to clean the streets up.
