Today, I had to take time to shovel the piles of ice and snow out of the driveway. I still didn’t completely finish, but it is clear enough to drive out of. I still have to scrape and shovel the steps and front stoop, though, so no walking out of that door – it’s got at least a foot of ice-hardened packed snow.
That iced over snow is VERY hard to shovel. There was maybe 6 to 8 inches of ice-fall last night that has hardened into some kind of shell that can support my body weight while I walk over it. Then, I have to break it up and sling it out of the way… I thought I was going to the gym tonight, but it looks like my driveway is my gym today.
