Would it be asking all that much to include in a story like this just how much snow fell? I don't live there anymore but, it looked like a decent storm.

Likewise, ColB, but I think I did read somewhere it was 10-12 inches in Webster County.

Snow removal is a joke. I dont know where the plows were on Sunday because I didnt see any. Emergency snow routes and snow routes in general werent in any condition to be drove on Monday. I would consider this another snow removal fail for the city.

When will the sidewalks be cleaned along 5th south? The 24 hour law to remove snow in effect? There are a lot of sidewalks that are not cleaned yet all over town. The police do seatbelt crackdowns why can't they stop at these places, knock on the doors an tell them to move the snow because they are breaking the law. Maybe because there is no money to be made.

Wondering when they'll get to the rest of the city. One of the main routs I take is almost dangerous! If I'd known it was that bad, I'd have avoided it this morning, but it was too late by the time I realized how bad it was.

bh: If the lot is owned by the city, it is the pvt owner's responsibility to clear the sidewalk tat abuts it (most places, the sidewalk nevertheless lies on the public right of way, not on the lot. But count yourselves lucky; in Denmark I had to scoop my had the roadway, too! Not much snow, thank heaven. In Norway, the city paid the unemployed to scoop - at the low wage of the least skilled worker regardless of what the worker's employed wage had been, but there each union ran its own unemployment fund and made its members scoop. Wonder how the AFL-CIO would take to that?
