To Shovel or Not to Shovel

  • Print

I am a snow lover, mainly because it is just so pretty. However, each snowfall means a safety debate as to whether it is better to clear sidewalks or leave a "protective snow covering" in place.  When there is snow on the sidewalk, at least any underlying ice is covered.  I landed square on my derriere last winter, due to black ice on the sidewalk. Sure, you can put down ice melt, but it's just not 100% effective.  I'd rather tromp through a few inches of snow than have an icy sidewalk exposed. I often wear Yak Traks on my snow boots, but they are a pain to take on and off and they sometimes make inside floors slippery if you forget to take them off...I've made some interesting entrances in foyers with marble tile.
