Xcel energy is asking customers to clear ice and snow away from their gas meters. Not clearing this snow could be dangerous to you and your family.

As the ice and snow pile up, it can lead to natural gas build up in the home or building. Xcel also urges appliance vents to be cleared of snow, otherwise they will not operate properly. It's recommended to clear most of the snow with a shovel, but carefully clean around the piping with your hands.
