The nearly six hundred members of Mayor O'Leary's Snow Brigade busted their humps today clearing snow from the following schools; Tinker, Gilmartin, Kingsbury, Walsh, Duggan, Maloney, Chase, Reed, Wilson, Wilby, Crosby, Kennedy, Bucks Hill and WAMS. It wasn't all work, however, as kids being kids, they managed to have a few chuckles along the way.
In this picture Anthony Romero, 16, gives a big smile after being blasted by a shovel of snow from his buddy, Anthony Del Valle. Romero and Del Valle were joined at Reed School by their friend Jonathan Castellar, and they called themselves "The Three Musketeers."
Thank you Musketeers for working hard, being enthusiastic, and reminding Waterbury that work can be fun.

There was an astounding response to Mayor Neil O'Leary's offer to pay Waterbury youth to help shovel out the schools. At least 500 kids packed the entire upper floor of City Hall, filling both Veteran Memorial Hall, aldermanic chambers, and the hallway inbetween. It's hard to imagine that more city residents have ever been in City Hall at one time. An historic response to an historic crisis. Very cool.
