Let It Snow!
The city is moving to update its regulations concerning snow removal from sidewalks. The proposals provide some reasonable improvements (e.g. the chief of police is no longer to determine if a sidewalk has been appropriately cleared, although appropriately cleared has now been defined in even more specific detail), but I still think that it will be a waste of resources if these provisions are enforced for sidewalks in front of private residences. If people are concerned about snow on the sidewalk in these instances, then they can pick up a shovel and help remedy the situation. The Giant on Arliss recently had a special ($7.99, it was a bargain!), so even I'm prepared this year.
