    25 Points for Boomer2U. 20 Super Mega Points for the snow shoveling. 5 Bonus Points for accidentally pandering by shoveling a sidewalk that I used later that day.

    It was brought to my attention after my good deed that this was a thing, so I don’t have the best “before” pic ( but do have a witness if needed) from shoveling snow off the sidewalk in front of each of the adjacent homes, and the entry way of the gate-less property for Mail delivery while they are away.

    I shoveled the sidewalk across three properties to the STOP sign, plus a cut out to access the street.

    Shoveled Neighbor’s entryway


    This is what it looked like before, but from a different angle, looking down, before I went out to shovel (note STOP sign in lower right corner)

    25 Points for Boomer2U. 20 Mega Points for making this CaBi station useable. 15 points for extreme pandering to clear the station I used during the snow storm. Negative 10 points for aiding car supremacy.

    On the walk back home, I helped push a car that got stuck exiting the alley where I stash my bikes, and then shoveled out the ice dam in the street to reduce the ice sheet formation later tonight, but this is also self serving since I use the alley (along with 6 other residences and an adjacent apartment building). No pics but I do have several grateful witnesses.
