Commenting article: Sofia Mayor Borisov: Europe Is Trapped by Snow, Sofia Is Clean to Asphalt

The Mayor of Sofia, Boyko Borisov, told reporters Friday that while main roads all over Europe and Bulgaria were blocked by the snow storm, Sofia's streets were cleaned to "asphalt" and public transportation was running.

Borisov announced that most of the boulevards and major thoroughfares were clean, but the snow drifts made the situation very difficult. The Mayor stressed that the snow has been cleaned all through the night and all equipment was on the streets while the activities of the concession company in charge of the cleaning were monitored round the clock.

The article says: "main roads were open and public transportation moving"

I think, it is important to notice, that "Uncle B" cares about the situation.

OK, he might make a public statement for PR reasons.

But he cares!

Just my two stotinki
