The process of digging out was not fun in the least. Like almost everything else, there is a code of etiquette associated with shoveling snow, and after last week, I can confidently say that not many people around here followed it.
Don’t do dumb things in your apartment’s parking lot while other people are trying to dig out: Dig-out time is not the time to tie a sled to your truck’s hitch and pull people around the icy lot like it’s a dog sled (yes, I actually saw that done). It’s dangerous, dumb, and no one thinks it’s funny or wants to try. If you want to sled, do it right.
Be mindful of your neighbors who might need an extra hand: Got an extra shovel or scraper? See a neighbor trying to roll over a patch of snow/ice/slush and their front-wheel drive won’t catch and pull forward? Lend a hand. You might get rewarded with hot chocolate/coffee and cookies.
