Two-hour snow delay: shovel or salt your walk!

Today, DC schools and the government have yet another delay due to the bad weather, and it's a good reminder to make sure to due your civic duty (and legal duty) to clear the sidewalk in front of your house, even if you're a renter. Shoveling and then putting down salt or ice melter is the best bet to keep it clear.

It's a nice thing to do as well as potentially keep you and your neighbors from falling and busting their butts -- and that isn't fun. You could also get a ticket if you don't do it.

DC also has a snowplow tracking map on their website, so you can see if your street was plowed or treated (and if not, you can call 311 or tweet at DDOT and DPW. More info here.)
