You must do the entire sidewalk. Don’t just do a little path that’s the size of your shovel. Do the ENTIRE sidewalk. Don’t be lazy. Put your back into it. And if you can’t, figure out how to do it either by paying someone else or using a snowblower.
Also, dig out your mailbox you monster.
*may not apply to our city-dwelling folks but if you own a home and you don’t shovel your sidewalk, then all three of my dogs are gonna leave a flaming hot turd on your doorstep.
