The weather outside is frightful • County officials are reminding residents in unincorporated areas that they are responsible for keeping the sidewalks and mailboxes in front of their homes clear and that any vehicle left on a designated emergency snow-removal route may be towed at the owner's expense. They recommend that sidewalks be cleared after crews have plowed the roads and that snow be piled on the yard, not the street.
