Those are my old lunch-run routes. Those Missourians definitely do not shovel the sidewalks. The mail man drives on them though. With a little sun the tracks melt off quicker than the rest.

To add a mile or so on the south end, East Ladue/West Ladue is a nice loop. Magna Carta/Runnymeade to the west, is a nice loop too.

Saw a man struggling down an unshoveled public sidewalk on Watson Rd. in a walker the day after the snow! And the sidewalk ends for a short distance under the underpass. Don't know how he was going to negotiate that narrow dirt path in the snow. Maybe with bike/ped initiatives comes the responsibility to provide maintenance?

yeah saw the mailman tracks! thx for the route add-ons.

in MN it's required somehow (law? i'm not sure) that property owners shovel their sidewalks. also cities have sidewalk-plows that take care of most-used ones. it's so nice!

MO believes in solar powered snow removal -- works every time if you are patient

it might actually be law here too, just ignored and unenforced.

I'm sure it varies by municipality. Us County folk can do pretty much whatever we want.
