First snow walk this season


Today I was inspired to revive this blog when after struggling down the city sidewalk – covered by hard crust snow and re-frozen slush, my daughter and I arrived at the park gate wide open to traffic (private vehicles are prohibited) – AND the park road plowed all the way through. (The north end gate was left open, too.)

So who benefits from this tax-payer supported “service?” Not walkers. The asphalt road creates ice patches, ruts and the dreaded “black ice” that is a danger to life and limb. Not dogs, that love to walk in snow.

The appropriate service for park users would be tamp down a simple path in the snow. Everyone who walks, or jogs knows this. It wouldn’t need to be as broad as a road, – rather, just the width of the sidewalk.
