MT. VERNON, N.Y. - One of the benefits of living in a densely populated region is expecting your tax dollars to salt and plow a clear path to work during a snowstorm.

Rubber gloves, lots of them, had been deliberately stuffed into the gas tanks of the city’s entire fleet of garbage, plow, and salt trucks - just in time for Tuesday’s snowstorm.
