The N.H.

Of course, plow trucks can’t clear everything – to remove snow from sidewalks, for example, cities have to rely on smaller plow vehicles, snowblowers, or snow shovels (along with a fair bit of strength and patience).</p><p>One thing that New Hampshire cities apparently can't turn to when it's time to clear sidewalks: residents.
