Two Snow Things

There's another snowstorm happening outside my windows again (yes I know it's March, please tell that to the sky) and this is my friendly reminder that Chicago Municipal Code sections 4-4-310 and 10-8-180 state that property owners and occupants are responsible for keeping sidewalks clear of snow and ice.

I had this really clever idea to make stickers to put on those neighbors' gates who don't shovel that say "Thanks for not shoveling your sidewalk. I'll be sure to send the hospital bill for my broken bones to this address." Of course I would have a friendly one for nice neighbors, too, that says "Thank you for shoveling, neighbor!" It probably has a heart or a smiley face on it, too. But the city beat me to it with this door hanger. Look, it's friendly AND official!

Thing numero dos: With any snowstorm comes snowball fights, and tonight Chicagoist, RedEye and Do312 face off in their own Snowbrawl 2013 in Wicker Park. Okay, really anyone can show up and start throwing snow at other people and its a good time. Last year was super fun. The news even thought so. The real news. See you there!
