usually you hear the announcement over the tv. I didn't this time around. I do have a driveway, but my neighbors have been parking on the street.

Yes, the announcements over the Television would have been very helpfull! What is wrong with Norwalk anymore?? The kids that had to walk to school today had to climb over MOUNDS of snow just to make it!! Is their safety not an issue anymore since there is oviously no bussing for intown students?? This just makes me sick anymore!! I hope for any student that got injured or ends up sick because of this, their parents put a lawsuit out on this city once and for all!!!

If you looked outside, you probably wouldn't need a TV announcement. As far as mounds of snow, we always looked at those as fun. That's right, I was born before everyone was pampered.

although it would be nice if everyone kept their sidewalks clean.. there are many people who, through one injury or another have been told by their doctors Not to shovel snow... is it really worth it to have a heart attack for something that on a nice sunny day will turn into water and disappear??? I think it would be nice of people who have snow blowers and snow plows to think about their neighbors once in awhile.. even if you have had "bad blood" between you at one time, how could they not consider that to be a very generous and thoughtful gesture, and could actually build bridges....and I wouldn't worry about the kids too much.. you know kids, they look for giant piles to climb, and be king of, just like they look for puddles of water to splash in...it is true that safety is always an issue... but kids and challenges always seem to go together...

I heard the announcement on tv. Maybe the trouble is that it only goes out on Time Warner and so many have satellites? I heard it on WLKR, too. Rogerthat is correct - if the plows are out - then you can't park on the street! Pretty simple. And if you can't shovel, ask a neighbor or friend or call one of the churches or Services for Aging. The kids have to get to school when the schools are open and, as a resident, you are responsible for clearing the sidewalk.

Every time there is a plow out, does not mean there is a parking ban.
