Get My Drift?

Snow, snow, everywhere…. I know, we have all seen enough of the white stuff, it seems like it is never going to stop piling up.  It seems that we all have done nothing this winter but shovel, snow blow, and plow. 

However, there are a few places that might be forgotten but are extremely important to keep clear.  The most important one are the fire hydrants.  It is imperative that in the case of a fire, the firefighters are able to find and actually use them – your home could be at stake.   The electric and gas meters should be kept clear as well, think of the poor meter readers that may not even be able to find the meter to read.   At least the gas and electric companies will estimate the readings if it cannot be read.  How about the pipe that fills the oil tank??  If the oil delivery person cannot get to the pipe, you may not get that very important oil delivery – this is not the winter to run out of oil!  What about your mail box?  How long are those postal worker’s arms anyways? 

So, bottom line, take a look around your house to make sure that anybody that may need  to get to your house, actually can.  If you are able-bodied, please, check your neighbors, especially the elderly. 

Sooner or later, these piles will shrink down to nothing, but in the meantime, be careful!!  For topical information on insurance issues, visit our website:
