I have a serious question.  Is it my responsibility to shovel the sidewalk outside my house?  I  just assumed that since it's a public sidewalk in a city, the city should take care of it, but maybe I'm wrong...

No, sidewalk maintenance is a private affair.  I would check your lease to see whether it's your job or your landlord's (but my money's on you and the other tenants.  :()  That's one thing I miss about being in the city with maintenance staff to handle all of that...although it is kind of fun to get out in the fresh snow. 

That sucks balls.  Hopefully my three neighbors will get their act together and handle that one.  :P  Awesome, the university does clean their own walks/roads, but I don't live on campus.

Don't take this the wrong way, but I'm positively beaming.  Did you just say "sucks balls"?  Oh M., I am so proud! 
(Or have you always been a potty mouth and I just don't see enough of you?)

It comes out at times, though sucks balls is fairly regular.  You should hear me on the phone with my sister (Hey female dog, shutafuckup, etc).  The bf looks at me like I'm crazy.   :D

But I also don't see enough of you!

Yeah, I think you are going to be stuck shoveling your own sidewalk.  God knows I've done that enough times!

I'm from an island.  I don't shovel snow.   :P

That's one of the reasons I moved into a condo (though I really question my decision now).  However, yesterday they came to clear our walks about 10 minutes after my wife made me go out and shovel so she could get to my car for our Sunday night card game at Grandma's house.

In every other city I've lived in where snow is common, the city DID take care of it.

wtf.

Hmm.  You must have just lived in the right buildings where someone else took care of it.  Even in NYC it's the resident/tenant/homeowner's responsibility.  

(According to Sect. 16-123 of the city code.  I just looked it up.  THAT'S how much I don't want to study for Transnat.)

How's Ithaca?  This weather is making me nostalgic for that other beautiful hippie college town I used to live in - you know, the one in a state where they believe in and practice snow removal.   :P

Ithaca & Beautiful college town?  It's pretty commonly known around here as Troy-West and any upstate NY'er worth their salt KNOWS that is not at all an endearing term...

Worth my salt?  I'll see your Troy and raise you a Watervliet.  (I went to college in Albany, stayed for almost 9 years total and looooove that region.) 

But I enjoyed my time in Ithaca.  Wouldn't want to live there long-term, but it was a great place to be a grad student.  And who could possibly say it's not beautiful?!  Isolated?  Sure.  Small?  I'll grant you that.  But not beautiful?  Hmmm...

I'm just talking out of jealousy... :)

I'd certainly trade my Troy campus for Cornell's campus without really hesitating.  I've lived in the Albany area (Troy more specifically) for, oh 22+ years now, so I am ready to GO.  Seems like Ann Arbor isn't much of a step up though?

Nah, I'm messing around, cuz - like I said - I'm cranky and old and sick of this semester.  Ann Arbor is great, but I am an unapologetic, died-in-the-wool, totally and completely biased New Yorker.  I love the whole damn state (well, kinda indifferent to Western NY, and we should float Long Island out to sea...)  Don't worry, love, I'll be there in a few days!*

* and by 'love', I of course mean 'New York'.

Yea', I didn't mean Ann Arbor was bad from anything you said, just my impression in general.  Cold, wet, short-summered area with little to do other than the university?  I've already had that for my UG (and all my growing up years).
