Blizzard 2011

When the snow rolled through earlier this week, I at first didn’t think that it was that big of a deal. After all, I grew up in the Midwest and even spent a couple of years living in Maine. Snow is just a part of winter.

However, when I went out to actually shovel the snow, it was fairly obvious that this wasn’t typical. There was a drift that was literally 5ft high covering most of my driveway. Then the 12-15″ everywhere else. This wasn’t the light and fluffy snow either. I had to use a snow shovel to break it up before I could get at it with the snow blower.

5 Feet High

Where the drift started that covered the driveway.

It took me two days to clear my driveway and the sidewalks. (Corner lots suck.)Once I got down to the end of the driveway, I did have a small problem because I ran out of space for the snow I was snow blowing. This left me with decent sized walls on both sides of the driveway. I must admit, I also didn’t fully remove the snow on one side of the driveway

Glad to be done with it and now I am just sore and tired and feel like I could sleep for a week. When does spring get here?
