The city has declared a "snow emergency" where they are doing a blitz snow removal. Ploughs are running 24/7 and going street by street. No signs are going up; residents are expected to listen to the radio and watch the website to know when their area will be cleared. If cars are in the way they will be ploughed around, and their owners then have to dig themselves out. Ditto for driveways - windrows are being left on either side of the road, with home owners being responsible to clear a path in and out of their driveways.
This may sound extreme, but since I've seen at least five vehicles stuck on the corner in front of the house, I think it's required.
Yep, the drift is higher than my waist. It was a hoot and a half to shovel out.
I *always* park in the garage.
This week, I'm parked on the driveway so that tilers have room to cut tiles in the garage. That drift around it doesn't look too high, but it was 18" tall yesterday. After a night of high winds and even more snow, it's over 2'. With a windrow at the end.
Have I mentioned that I gave away my snow blower last year?
