Winter was kind Sunday, no deep freeze or blizzard, with relatively mild temperatures and even some sunshine.
But, typical for this harsh season, yet another storm is heading our way soon.
But the real winter threat comes late Tuesday into Wednesday with another snowfall that will possibly turn into a messy and freezing rain.
Grandfather William Hebner, 67, made a habit of cleaning away not only his sidewalks but that of his neighbors as well on Winter Avenue in the West Brighton section, the paper said.
Elsewhere, as piles of snow still clutter city streets, garbage collection and recycling are back starting Monday.
The Sanitation Department asks New Yorkers who normally have garbage collected on Mondays to place all their refuse and recycling bags curbside by Sunday night and dig out any bags and pails buried under the snow.
Likewise the Fire Department would like residents to clear away remaining snow that may be blocking fire hydrants.
