We do get snow here in DFW area, but I find myself occasionally missing the snow we used to get living in the northeast. After viewing these pics, not so much.

We had a 1-2" blizzard in northern Illinois. But the neighbor's dog doesn't seem to mind. ImageUploadedByEarly Retirement Forum1454000401.026492.jpg

Yes Chicago is like that. They will fine you if you don't.
I think its a way to kill off the 80 yr old adults.

Why do some cities do that, while other cities plow the sidewalks just like they plow the streets. It's crazy to have citizens clean the sidewalk while taxes pay for stuff like festivals/parades etc.
Why not have citizens also clean the road since it's such a good idea.

Our city does not require it, and I'm glad as I live on a corner lot, and never asked for the city to make a sidewalk. The city repairs the sidewalk and won't let me park on it, so obviously they feel they own it, but they don't clean it.

And we are very glad we have a garage and keep our vehicles in it. No more clearing snow & ice off them!
Thought about you in West Virginia as I viewed the reports.

I want to thank everyone for posting their pictures. They all remind me why I am glad I no longer live in Chicago or Maine. They remind me why the brutal (to me) NC summers are worth putting up with - it's so I don't have to see these scenes outside my own windows for months at a time. We get the occasional snows, but they are mercifully small and short-lived.

I am going to bookmark this thread and refer back to it next August, when I think how lovely it would be to live in New England again.
