A powerful nor’easter snowstorm hit the northeast USA this weekend with snows up to 12 inches in parts of New York City. When clearing the snow around your property and the sidewalk, please follow safety measures to ensure the gas piping and gas appliance vents are properly clear of any snow or debris.
