Pick up a shovel, folks

February 21, 2014 

It saddened me to see all the school children trying to walk to school through all the snow that turned into ice on the sidewalks. Why is it that no one feels the need to shovel the sidewalks so people can walk on them? These children had to either slip and slide and get their feet wet and cold or walk in the streets.
