Snow removal

Last week, I received a ticket for snow removal and I am boiling! I remove the snow off my sidewalks every time it snows. I even plow some of the neighbors' sidewalks.

Then, along come the city plows on Elizabeth Street, and they push the snow all on the east side and cover up my sidewalk. Then the condo building on my west side plows its driveway — onto my sidewalk.

Am I supposed to plow again? By then the snow is frozen and 2 feet deep. I'm 69 years old, for heavens sake! What does the city want? An old lady with a heart attack?
