Weather has left me a prisoner

Why in God's name am I, a pensioner, who has had both hips replaced in the last two years, a virtual prisoner in my own home?
I have worked all my life and paid my taxes, yet a few inches of snow that fell a week before Christmas is some three weeks later still on the ground due to freezing and has not been treated.
However, 40 years ago, with a lot less equipment and money, the local council was able to grit the paths and we were able to get about with relative ease.
