Thank you I will!

Let us know what happens, we're all worried about you. Pretty sure my snot attacks are less serious than you needing surgery

SB, have you ever had surgery? Take it from someone who has every part of her body cut on, It is a snap. They will probably do microscopic surgery. Tiny scar and you can go home the next day.

is this common practice, fining folks for not clearing their sidewalks? this is the first i've heard of such a practice.
oh, and i forgot to mention that voluntary snow-cleaning crews are supposedly being created to help those folks physically unable to comply with the snow removal requirement. except that, nobody has signed to volunteer their snow shoveling services as of yet....
Here, sidewalks must be cleared by 10 AM. This is a very common practice.

We have 24 hours after it stops snowing. We do have this quaint thing about spaces for cars parked on the street. If you dig out your car, that is your spot. So you put whatever you have in that space so no one else can pull in and park there. Drive down any street and you will see lawn chairs, barrels, cones, and anything else big enough to keep a car out of that space. Then after a couple of days the Mayor lets it be known that the Public Works Dept. will start to pick up everything holding a parking space. So if that lawn chair is your favorite one, you better bring it back in or it is gone.

I have had out of state friends that have been visiting in the winter and can't believe what they see.

Sidewalks? No such thing in my neighborhood. One thing I truly miss by living in the 'burbs. Here you have to walk in the street and pray you don't get run over by some maniac kid zipping around in his parents' car.

Should have said, the city cleans them, where there are sidewalks. There's sidewalk on my side of the street, not the other and none at all on some of the streets nearby. I would be really ticked off if I had kids who had to get anywhere by themselves.
