Streets plowed; sidewalks buried

Published: Saturday, March 16, 2013 1:15 a.m. CST

This is about cleaning sidewalks. If you live in Dixon on Washington Avenue, it would be a 24-hour job; no way can you keep up with the snowplows.

They are up and down, up and down, throwing the snow 8 to 10 feet across the sidewalks and driveways. But they do clean the streets where they can.
