Once the snow had stopped falling last night I cleared the footpath in front of my home and spread some salt to stop it freezing. Anyone who served in BAOR will know that's normal in Germany. I'd hoped that the neighbours might take the hint and follow my example, good thing I'm not holding my breath. You might be tempted to call them a load of c..ts, but remember a c..t is useful (for two things if you include peeing)! Is anyone clearing the pavements where you live?
