The weather forecasters are predicting 12 to 18 inches of snow starting on Friday.
Last week when we had much less snow, Shorewood businesses suffered as the parkways became virtually insurmountable barriers to their storefronts for potential customers (see pictures in my last posting).
Last Saturday when our business was open on Oakland Avenue (4400 block) we didn't have enough customers to cover the overhead --- much less, God forbid, make some money !!
You may recall from my last posting, about the poor guy who was taking his elderly father to get a haircut at Joe's Barber shop at 4417 N Oakland --- it was amazing that neither one broke a leg or ankle slipping and sliding over the snow and ice thrown onto the parkway by the snowplows.
So what do the Shorewood Merchants have to look forward to this weekend ?
Does the Village Board or Administration have an "action plan" in place ?
Will the DPW clear the parkways with their front end loaders ?
Or should we (and other shopkeepers) just keep our doors closed rather than lose more money ?
Oh, and By the Way ----- with 12 to 18 inches of snow, what are the Village's plans for the sidewalks, alleys, & crosswalks ?
Any Village Board Members or Administration Officials who have any information on how this storm will be dealt with .... please feel free to use the Comment Section below and clue the rest of us in on the plan.
