SNOW!! (Maybe? Probably?) A neighborly reminder that homeowners, agents, and tenants of any building or premise shall clear a path of not less than 36" in width on all sidewalks, including curb cuts, abutting the building or premises within 6 (six) hours after the snow has ceased to fall. The path shall be thoroughly cleared of snow and ice. That's the official rule. Additionally, ensure all storm drains and fire hydrants are clear of snow. More practically, though, please do your part to help all your neighbors walk safely, even with strollers or wheelchairs or walkers or dogs. If you know of a neighbor who is out of town or elderly or can't manage, step it up and just do it! Great for the triceps!
