A snow ban is in effect until further notice. Please do not park your cars on the street. With snow expected for the next couple of days, and with the amount of snow we’ve already received, our snow plows can only be effective if no cars are on the street. As I drive through the Village, I have noticed many examples of people helping other people with snow removal from driveways, or with cars being stuck in the snow. Just yesterday I was helping my son try to get his car out of a snowdrift on Athens (he was there helping a resident remove snow from her driveway). We were having no success until a man driving by stopped, got out of his car, and helped us. With his help, we did get the car out. Thank you, sir. Good deeds like this are common in Silver Lake.
