      The Old Farmers’ Almanac has been forecasting weather patterns since 1792 and the outlook for the coming winter looks like we’ll need to stock up on warm winter gear and shovels.

      As we head into this cold and snowy season, it’s important to keep in mind that many cities and towns have laws and regulations regarding snow and ice removal.  For example, in Cambridge , the owner or occupant of private property adjacent to a sidewalk is required, within twelve hours after snow ceases to fall in the daytime and before one p.m. after a fall of snow during the night, to remove all snow that may be on such sidewalk.  Some cities and towns apply fines for violating these snow removal regulations created for the safety of their residents.   For the snow removal regulations in your city/town check out the Massachusetts City and Town Bylaws and Ordinances
