Letter: When you live in the mountains, you must adapt to the climate

It is sad to read the article of the young lady who slipped on ice and suffered injuries in her fall.

However, people need to accept some responsibility for themselves. Looking to take legal action against the town is not the answer. Nor is complaining about the budget for snow removal. 

You are in the mountains, and we get a lot of heavy snowfall. 

There is no possible way to absolutely clear all of the snow and ice off the streets and sidewalks. Increasing the snow removal budget is not going to be the answer. 

Our plows, be it town, highways, or private companies, are doing all that they possibly can do, to maintain the safety of our town. 

But, at some point, you need to think for yourself. It is snow covered and icy out. 

Perhaps take some extra precautions and use common sense, instead of blaming the rest of the town because you weren't careful enough. 

No one else is responsible if you slide your car off the road, nor are they if you slip and fall.
