    Clearing snow, and ice from sidewalks and steps is old fashioned.
    Only old people make sure it's clean.
    Generation X and Millennial's just walk on it, pack it into ice.
    I figure they all have bad backs, can't lift a shovel full of snow.

    I shovel every time it snows, I put down ice melt, I scrape off the ice if its warm enough, etc. I wish half the people on my route did the same. Apparently I have something to lose if someone gets hurt on my property.

  5. These are responsibilities you sign up for when actually buying a house in my opinion. I do all this too, except the ice melt. I try to make sure it doesn't get to that point.

    You can tell which houses don't shovel their walkways on my trip. There's usually a stack of Delivery Notices on or around their property. F them.

    My safety > Their delivery

    First year I have not fallen flat on my back, yet. Getting too old to pick myself up on an icy driveway or sidewalk.

    Brownslave688 You want a toe? I can get you a toe.

    I never shovel my drive. I think I got my share with a 150 ft drive growing up. Lol

    Doesn't stop me from cursing all those that I deliver too.

    Yeah there is some but there is no way I'm going to trek through a foot of snow to get to your house

    I shoveled a 2 foot wide path down my 650 ft driveway today - in fact twice.
    We keep one side wheels in the shoveled area to get up and down driveway.

    How much snow did you end up getting down there?
