Last week when it snowed, I shovelled my walks, primarily for the church-goers across the street.
Today the wind chill is -26 F. Nope. Not doing it today, city trustee or no.

The village has an ordinance which says walks must be shovelled by 8 AM, however, there are no police to enforce it.
And since we bought our new car, the old scary one with all the religious freedom and Eris-supporting bumper stickers are gone so they do park on our side of the street now.
And right now it's even colder: the temp is supposed to get to -20F (-29C). We're not talking wind chill here.
The air is so cold when I open my door to let the dog out, the warm air rushes out and the water instantly condenses into fine snow.
I don't blame you! Anyway, I thought they weren't parking on your side of the street.
Most places give you a 24 or 48 hour period after it stops snowing. Surely your township does the same, doesn't it?
If it's your sidewalk it's a liability thing. Although what time do you have to get up to do it?
I, too, live out in a rural area? Do the church goers shovel a walk for you to get the feed store?
You need a better excuse than "wind chill". Chilblaines or frostbite? Headache?
Awww, c'mon! What's a little windchill among friends? All you really need is, say, five or six layers against the cold and you'll be JUST FINE!Actually, you're displaying a trait which some of those church goers could stand to learn: discretion. Meantime, those who are nuts enough to go out in that icebox are displaying another trait: insanity!
