There really is a driveway under there

While shoveling out from our 14" storm last week, I paused to put some perspective to the chore of clearing the driveway. The mailbox marks the street. It took 2 of us about 2 hours to clear the drive. Predictably, the plow came by just as we hit the street and gave us another dose to dig out.

  9. That's a lot of snow! Clearing that wide of a swath is surely admirable. Good choice for B+W, for I imagine there isn't that much color to begin with. Including the shovel in the center of this Snowopolis is a nice touch.

  13. I'm sorry, Val, knowing these events; having done the work and cleaned the entrance of the garage, just at the moment comes the snow plow and I have to begin once more ...

  14. I felt your pain! That is why we now have a snow thrower - and it takes care of the end of the driveway when the snowplow comes by later on.
