The Driveway

We had a relatively easy winter here in the Northeast. Some of the mid-Atlantic states had record storms and huge snowfall totals, but not us. We were spared from many of the largest storms... until the last week of February. The last week of February we had just over 30" of snow and 2" of rain, which is about double the entire rest of our winter season. The snow just kept coming, and eventually I ran out of places to put it. The driveway kept getting more and more narrow, and the snow piled on the house reached the kitchen windows.

This video is from Sat, Feb. 27, and begins about 100 yards South of our driveway.

Hey (laughing here) at least you didn't have to shovel the driveway by hand huh? We missed most of the snow this year too. I really liked that.

Thank you, Kristina!

Yes, that's true, Amber - we didn't have to shovel it by hand. Though we've done that before. It's tough work. At roughly one foot deep and 8 feet wide, Andy and I shoveled 400 linear ft/hour last winter.

And who's the anonymous poster?! Whoever you are - you're right, I shouldn't. :) But traffic rules are for traffic. Since there was no traffic... I figure there are no rules.
