Amarillo is the land of the wind. I mean there is a reason that we are truly the windiest city in the United States. Heck, I am from Chicago originally and I can attest that we have them beat to heck. I also know that is not the reason Chicago is called the Windy City. Oh, politicians ruin everything.
I will be the first to say that the City of Amarillo doesn't always get the thanks that they deserve. So I am going to be the first to shout, thank you. I had a problem I was facing at my house and I handled it the right way.
As I took the trip out to my dumpster last week I had hoped for two things. I wanted ever so much for there to be room for my bag of trash. I also had wished that we could go back to twice-a-week pickups.
The trash in Amarillo has been a hot topic for quite some time. First, we lost a lot of our dumpsters in different areas. Those magically turned into trash cans we got to roll into the front of our homes on trash day.
