I am not sure where all this animosity comes from....correct me if I am wrong but this is a forum to comment on the topic at hand and continue the conversation....not be judgemental or rude...I will not apologise for the fact that in the past folks did not comply with rules... Having said that kudos to the people living on dykeman AVENUE they are mostly in compliance... Peace to all and be safe with the storm.

Please come down to Sherman Avenue also!! Thank you!!!! I live in Patricia Gardens and the plow trucks barely come down Sherman..I followed directions yesterday and parked on the right side of the street as directed by the signs but when I look out my windows this morning, there's an overload of cars on both sides of the street..PLEASE come down Sherman Avenue because I have to work tomorrow morning and I do not want to have to shovel my car out..I wish I had the privilege of not going but I'm a nurse at a 24 hr facility..and my job is approximately 10 minutes away..THANK YOU!!!!
