Synopsis
To avoid problems with the law, Jughead throws ashes on the slippery sidewalk, but he accidentally throws them on a police officer who had just slipped. Jughead and his Uncle Herman put an awning over the sidewalk to prevent snow falling on it, but it splits and drops snow on the same police officer. Their last attempt is to run hot water over it to melt the ice, but that just makes it slippery again as the police officer runs over it.
