It looks like your shovel is going to be your best friend for the next few days. Thank goodness it was a dry snow and very light in texture which makes for easier shoveling. As you already know, driving conditions are not the best despite the efforts of City, County and State plows that have been working throughout the day and night.

Many people today will be shoveling snow from their driveways but many will also forgo their sidewalks. In checking with Quincy city officials, there is no ordinance requiring home and business owners to clean their sidewalks but it is strongly suggested that you do.

With many people walking to work or for recreation, being in the streets is not a good idea, but it may be the only place to walk.  If you have a sidewalk, please take the opportunity to clean it as well and give pedestrians a save passage away from the slippery roads we currently have.
