Be a good neighbor to walkers, runners

Success - Article sent! close

If you own or rent a house and have a sidewalk in front of your property, do you or your hired help clear after it snows?

If not, after you or someone else shovels or clears your driveway, and you go out to get your paper or otherwise, have you noticed footprints in the snow? Those prints and or tracks are from people like me who stay active and either walk, run or walk their pets, no matter of the cold and conditions and wish not to slip on the icy surface.

So please, take a few moments and clear your sidewalks of snow after a storm. Also, consider clearing a path for your U.S. Mail person too. Remember, you have more neighbors than you think.
