Snow Piles

Two big snowfalls and one medium-sized snowfall, all this week. No wonder it seems like we haven't done anything but shovel for a long time. The thing that worries me is where the snow is going to go. It's the first week of December and these are the piles we currently have

We have been trying to throw the snow away from the edge of the driveway. We have been trying to push it further down the driveway before we clear it off, so that the piles in the corners don't get too high. But I keep thinking that I need to get out there, on the piles of snow, and start moving the piles more toward the middle of the yard. Cities have bulldozers and backhoes and dump trucks to move the snow out of town when there's no place else to put it. I have a shovel. I should start now, taking into account what's yet-to-come this winter. But after you shovel for hours to clear the driveway, it's easier to sit by the fire and watch tv and crash than it is to go out there and MOVE the piles of snow.

It's gonna be a long winter.

Anybody want to send some global warming to the piles of snow by my driveway?

  1. Don't lose hope: it's WISCONSIN. There WILL be a thaw somewhere in there between now and March. :)
