Does someone do it or do you just leave it as a hazard for all who walk by?

I was born in NY and lived there until I was five years old. I always told my parents that I missed the snow. They would say to me "That is because you never had to shovel it!"

If so, that's cold.

Chicago "encourages" residents to clear their sidewalks. Supposedly there is some law which says you have to clean them. But looking at the city website gets zero information. Businesses on the other hand have to clear theirs or get a 500.00 fine per day. What really sucks here is that I'll shovel my side walk, and then the city plow comes through and throws the entire street's snow on the area I've just cleaned.

People who don't brush the snow off their cars are another pet peeve of mine. It actually bothers me more than the non-shoveler.

DH was very smart in getting that job offer here during the month of February, when he was traveling to Chicago every single week, leaving me with the kiddoes and the shoveling. I was so ready to move to a warmer climate!
Yoly, me too. I hate driving behind the (likely oblivious) person on the highway and dodging the sheet of snow that flew off of their car's roof.

I'm a runner and I hate hate hate the treadmill, which means that I run outside year round. I'm pretty good at avoiding icy patches and keeping my balance when I do hit a bit of ice, but I bit it bad earlier this week. Really bad. I landed on my right hip, and it's been painful (but improving) ever since.

I think I'll make some flyers next week, "Thanks in advance for shoveling your sidewalk. Sincerely - your friendly neighborhood runner" and drop them off at the particularly negligent homes.
"Well I love that dirty water. Oh, Boston, you're my home!"

This happened in my boyfriends truck. A sheet of thick ice landed on his windshield right when the traffic light changed to green. I had to grab his scraper, roll down the window, and knock it off. Scary stuff

I've never had to do it. I grew up in NYC and have always lived in apartment buildings. When I moved to the suburbs, I lived in a garden apartment for 5 years (the landlord shoveled everything). When we purchased our house, I complained about the fact that there were no sidewalks and who the heck creates a town without sidewalks?!?!?! Where would I walk my babies and where would the kids ride their bikes? In the street?

I guess there are some pluses to not having sidewalks.
I'm so happy we don't have sidewalks. You walk in the road. I hate shoveling my driveway as it is. We can't use snow throwers because our driveway is gravel.
My parents live on a corner lot and never shoveled the sidewalk. Why? Because once upon a time, if you shoveled the public sidewalk you were accepting liability and if someone fell then you could be sued. [Now that they're snowbirds, it still doesn't get done because no one is there to do it.]
Apparently now one can be sued for not clearing the snow, so no matter what you can get sued.

I personally feel that if the sidewalks are village/city property, the village/city needs to do the clearing. The people on my grandfather's street refused to take care of the parkway in front of their homes because it didn't belong to them. Why spend their money watering grass that wasn't theirs? was the mentality. Eventually the city took out the grass and replaced it with gravel so they could park on the side of the street.
There's no such thing as global warming. Chuck Norris was cold so he turned up the sun.
The past couple of days it's been way above freezing, yesterday was 51. So the sidewalks that hadn't been touched melted, refroze, then melted again. I about fell in front of the Qwest building, it looked like a big puddle. I stepped on it and it was a puddle on top of a sheet of ice. I came so close to falling.

The worst thing about ice melt is it will eat your sidewalk, but I'd rather have that than a slick sidewalk.
No joke, my sister broke her ankle this morning.

But it was on her own walk, poor thing.

Get this: she was barefoot, trying to grab the morning paper, which had landed just off the porch.

Ugh. Officially sick of winter now.
There is still February, March and April yet. Winter is here to say for awhile.

Sorry about your sister, that really sucks.
You have to shovel your property? Man, I'm glad I don't live up north!

I haven't got the slightest idea how to change people, but I still keep a long list of prospective candidates just in case I should ever figure it out.
