That was when I heard someone behind me call out, "Hey, Frank!"
I turned around to see my next door neighbor coming towards me with a snow blower. Without even being asked, he cleared away my sidewalk and driveway. As fast as I could say "thank you," he went on to take care of a 70 year-old widow how lives two doors down as well as the home of a firefighter who is on-duty for the next day or so. He also cleared the sidewalk in front of a couple of vacant homes.
Like I said, people like this make Detroit a place worth living in.
