Use the sidewalks

So now that winter is here, it is time to keep our sidewalks clean. Why? Mostly for the children going to school and to get your mail delivered. I have been a firm believer in keeping the walkways clear. I’ve cleaned a lot of walks in my days.

Growing up, I was taught that if the sidewalk was 4-feet wide, it should be cleared to 5 feet. No snow on the walk.

Period. Till this day I still do that. Thanks, Dad.

Now the only question I have is, why does the mailman walk through my yard and drag snow from his boots onto my clean sidewalks?

I shovel my neighbors and my walks for a reason. (The only two clean walks on our block). Now it’s time for people to start using them.
