Seeing a conEdison Emergency Truck on your block is usually a sight met with trepidation. However, these photos sent in by a reader caused a different reaction.
It's not that the conEd workers were napping; everyone needs a siesta now and then. The aggravation stemmed from their truck idling (most likely for the air conditioning) for an hour, according to my neighbor. As she said: "The truck was on and both passengers were asleep for at least an hour! I thought it was interesting since they provide energy and were acting wasteful."
Thanks for the extra exhaust, conEd. Since they are parked right by the park, I'm surprised they didn't just rest on the grass; it's cool and the shade provides some effective sunblock and nap-time.
