Okay, tell me if I am crazy, but when there is no snow on the ground and there is someone walking in the street, you get upset right? Then why is it that when there is snow on the ground, finally giving people a reason to be doing this insane behavior, does the city not do anything about it?

I have seen some of those pretty cool snow machines that suck the snow up and throw it like 15 feet to the side. I walk to the closest bus route in the morning and I have found myself walking off of the sidewalk because of the 3 1/2 feet of snow!!! Now I know this isn't a good idea, but honestly, if you were walking a 15 minute walk, you would be in the street as I am. Would it kill us to take some of these bums that I see everyone complaining about and teach them how to use it, and give them minimum wage for it? Couldn't hurt right? But when the wheels are turning and cars are sliding, I hope I don't hear the driver saying I couldn't stop and the person was just walking in the road!!!
