It snowed about 2" yesterday. Very heavy snow. We have two 4WD vehicles. With a stay-at-home order in effect what is the need to do any more than clean the front steps?

For me this falls into the 'Do The Right Thing' category.
Assuming you're talking about sidewalk shoveling, I'd treat it like any other time you get snow.
Staying sane in these cooped up times is as much about maintaining your daily routine as anything else.

I live in the country on a dirt road. Drive is 500' long. No sidewalks. All woods around my home.

We have all 4WD/AWD vehicles. We can get onto main roads with no issue.

NY capital district got 4-5 inches. Have a 6 car driveway to clear but a piece of cake with a snow blower that will handle 20 inches. Expecting to pickup a Walmart online grocery order today (first time trying the curbside pickup, placed the order a day ago). The roads were plowed overnite so no need to put my truck into 4WD.

We got about an inch of snow and freezing rain in the Hudson valley....didn't have to shovel but it was dangerous driving last night.
I called my income tax preparer to cancel my appointment for Friday due to 'social distancing'.....I was informed that Gov. Cuomo has not
extended the filing date and NY State tax returns are still due on 4/15....crazy....

Got almost a foot. I plan to hit it with the ATV plow, do a bit of shoveling for exercise, then go back inside and back to work. At least for a bit, will likely make a Home Depot and grocery store run today.

I complain at the town board meetings what a lousily job the highway supervisor does with the mud on the town road when it first warms up. I am lucky to still have a mailbox.

Nothing I guess, but its past spring on the calendar, some flowers are up, and I have many projects outside to get going on. So tired of cold weather and snow.

That is what a handful of Italians said also- some never made it back home.
