Give your gas meter space to work :)
Your meter’s job is to measure the amount of natural gas used by your home or business. The area around it should be kept clear so that you, the meter reader or emergency responders can reach it at all times. Keep access to your meter clear, so that it works accurately and safely this winter.
Meter safety tips for winter

Tell your snow removal contractor the location of your meter
Don’t use a snowplow or blower near your meter
When shovelling snow, don’t pile it up around your meter
Ensure appliance vents on the side of your home are clear from snow
