I don't know if its all of the metro area (most of my experience has been in the 'burbs).. but a lot of people here don't seem to own shovels (for one thing). They just drive over the snow until it melts (which usually isn't too long).

In Michigan the liability thing was taken somewhat seriously -- the logic seemed to be that if someone chose to cross a clearly unshoveled walkway it was an obvious "Cross at your own risk" type of thing. Where as if you'd shoveled, they could rightfully assume the walk was free of hazards (such as ice) and if they slipped you'd potentially be in trouble.

I'm sure not shoveling is a combination of those two factors, and just general laziness. Oddly, not everyone enjoys snow shoveling.

We shovel our driveway immediately after a storm (if on a weekday), or within 24hours (if on a weekend and we are feeling lazy), but we live in a no-sidewalk neighborhood, so that's not an issue.

We have many neighbors who don't shovel at all.

Do these snow emergencies extend to every street in Covington or for that matter all suburban communities or the city of Cincy? Or only select routes?

If I could own a home that still had on street parking but would not potentially get towed if I can't move it for a couple of weeks and through a couple of snowfalls then I would not be that concerned. Still off street parking is best in this case. I will be watching the real estate listings in Covington again.

Snow emergencies vary by jurisdiction, but usually apply only to arterial streets. For instance, if there's a snow emergency in Cincinnati you can't park on Plainville Road, but you can park on the side streets.

Why don't you just call Covington city hall and ask?
