Seriously, Plow the sidewalks too. As a visually impaired resident, it is extremely dangerous for those who are blind or vision impaired to walk out after a storm. Most are low income and can't afford taxis so we are forced to walk on icy sidewalks or in the street. How many people get hurt from falling on ice or being hit by a car trying to avoid icy sidewalks. Other pedestrians can also keep an eye out and offer a helping hand. How much of a problem is it really? You may wonder. Just don a blindfold and walk around the neighborhood after a storm and see how it feels.

I don't like snow because it sticks to my shoes and melts then makes my feet wet. It snowed 1 inch once this year so far and that whole day sucked because of it.

It's cloudy outside right now but the temperature is 72 degrees so I guess it won't snow today.
If it rains that's okay because it will flow away, snow just stays around and sticks to my shoes.
See my previous post for more about that.

May I ask you a question, if you are vision impaired, how did you see the computer keys to type in your comments?
Do they have the little dots on them that tell you what letters you are feeling instead of seeing?
