Actually if don't and someone falls you may be sued. So I started doing it and because our lawn slopes down toward sidewalk it makes it worse. I could use salt but I actually stopped unless its really heavy, because crunchy snow is better than icy sidewalk.

Do they send snow plows to clear the roads out in Peyton?

Snow plows cover major arteries first. They do not typically get to neighborhoods before the snow melts; you should not expect plowing in front of your house.

Here in Monument, and I think in other areas as well, the school bus routes have priority. These routes usually include the major arteries. If you are buying, it would definitely be a positive.

Happy First Day of Spring - great time to see some possible snow reappearing in the long-range forecast after a very warm, dry winter. There's a chance on Friday and again next Tuesday so far. Hopefully we'll get some precipitation of some type either of the days - we'll see. Just in time to interfere with my Spring Break plans next week, but beggars can't be choosers.

We had snow late last March (as usual) and in April we can get big dumps too.....nothing to be concerned about yet (a dry Spring).

And mom always said "no planting until after Mother's Day"!

I think we should be a little worried. It's been a very dry 2017. Even Mets are saying it's reminiscent of 2012-2013. We are running out of time for a good spring snow.

I'm excited about it, then again, I want to get a few more days out of my ski pass.
