With the wind and drifting snow make sure your exit doors are not blocked by snow. It doesn’t take much snow to keep it from opening when needed. Most people will plow or shovel snow next to the door leaving a small berm of snow left over. Over time the small berm of snow will sublime into an icy door stop. When plowing snow; especially the people who maintain schools, churches, apartments, restaurants and businesses, make sure all the snow is gone in front of all doors. Even back doors. If there is an EXIT sign on the inside, that door must stay clear of all debris.
