Nice point Bob. Just imagine the amount of money a city would save if 
those down the snowed-in streets just get their bodies outside and dig 
out the road themselves - city funds, better health, etc. ;-) Maybe even 
a more unified and friendlier community.

NOT ONE HINT of "get out there, and shovel YOURSELF out, and HELP your neighbor, and CLEAR the street so emergency personnel and the power company can get to where they need to go!
