To the Editor:
I would like to commend the local stores which totally cleared all the snow out of their parking lots after the recent blizzard. I observed the Big Y, for example, use huge dump trucks in the early morning hours removing great heaps of snow that had accumulated during and after the storm. This kept sight lines clear and sidewalks less hazardous.
Keeping pedestrians and the driving public safe is a community service and I am very appreciative of all the local shops and property owners who did their part in clearing out the town.
