It's that time of year when the Snow and Ice wars begin !
One of my pet peeves is the lack of concern for pedestrians in Shorewood regarding ice and snow --- when Shorewood proudly proclaims it is a Pedestrian Friendly Village --- NOT !
Following are some pictures from Shorewood High School --- showing a parking lot devoid of snow and ice --- but not so much for where people walk.
I had limited time to take pictures, but it seems almost every pedestrian crossing is ice covered on the High School side of the street.
Maybe the Shorewood PD has to write a few tickets to the School District to get them to be a little more Pedestrian Friendly.
(By the way, it is not just the high school --- last year the two grade schools, Lake Bluff and Atwater had ice covered sidewalks for days at a time -- totally impassable !!)
THIS WINTER IF YOU HAVE ANY PICTURES OF NON-PEDESTRIAN FRIENDLY WALKS PLEASE FEEL FREE TO SEND THEM TO ME WITH DETAILS OF WHERE AND WHEN --- REMEMBER THAT FOLKS DO HAVE 12 HOURS TO CLEAN UP THE WALKS OF SNOW OR ICE
LET'S KEEP SHOREWOOD PEDESTRIAN FRIENDLY THIS WINTER
