Alexandria, Virginia is giving residents a break clearing sidewalks. The city's government is delaying its sidewalk snow clearance ordinance until noon today.

It was decided to give residents, property and business owners a little more time considering the large amount of snow that fell over the weekend.

If you don't live in Alexandria and aren't sure if you're responsible for the sidewalk in front of your property, check out your county or city's webpage for more information.
