The storm that hit us this week took me about 4 hours to clear my driveway. And that was with a snowblower. The drifts were chest-deep. I couldn't see my 5-year old behind them. It's kind of funny around here... The first couple snowfalls of the year, I enjoy breaking out the snowblower even when it's only a couple inches. Then once we hit January and February, unless it's over 3-4 inches of snow, nobody bothers anymore. "Eh, the cars will compact it enough and it will melt eventually.
