Friday's picture-pretty snowfall soon gave way to rain and sleet that made a big mess for both drivers and walkers. With below-freezing temperatures predicted overnight, the situation may just get worse.
These footprints tell the story of walkers trying to find secure footing while awaiting sidewalk clearance that is supposed to happen within 24 hours of a storm. This portion of the sidewalk is outside a city parking lot, but as of Friday night, had no salt or shoveling. Kudos to Scott Drugs for clearing their part of Block 832.
Anyone who has to venture outside Saturday for groceries or other needs must take precautions against slipping on icy paths. Take care, everybody, and if you are a tenant, make your own path secure even if your evil landlord won't do it.
