I moved a mountain

Yep, all by myself... Courtesy of the snow plows, I had a 2' high, 4' wide row of hard packed snow and ice across the end of my driveway. Now, since I don't have a car I wouldn't bother clearing it. But guys are coming Thursday to insulate my basement, and my new fridge is coming Saturday, so I got out there and chopped away at it. It was a good workout.

Unfortunatly there is nothing we can do about the snow plows which is something my sister and mother don't understand and constantly harp around their driveway being buried in snow by the plows. They think the plows should swoop in and plow their driveway out. The plows don't have time for that with hundreds of driveways they go past. My nephews 15 and weighs near 300 pounds I'd say he should be in charge of shoveling that driveway out. Shoveling is exhausting so I'm always so tired the nights I have to do it. I hope to feel a sense of accomplishment at having gotten that all done alone like that

The last two times the street was plowed was by a guy with a backhoe, and he went nice and slow and none of the snow piled up on the sidewalk, like it did when a guy in a big truck plow zoomed down the street.

Ahh yeah the state guys here plow fast so it shoots out 20 feet or so from the edge of the road but they don't drop he blade low enough to the roads are never bare and he edges are awful.

@shaggin I don't think they really care. In fact, I think some of them enjoy blocking sidewalks and driveways.

Be careful, I damaged a shoulder two years ago shoveling hard snow.

I took it slowly... stopping every few shovelsful to catch my breath.

@BarBaraPrz I still have to understood how it happened, but a few days later my shoulder started to give me problems. It is fixed now.

Wow, how long did that take you? I will keep my fingers crossed that it doesn't not snow out there to make new mountains by Thursday or Saturday!

A couple hours, I think. I don't think it'll snow, but a bit of rain is forecast for Thursday.

@BarBaraPrz That IS a workout! Stupid question, but would rain melt away all that snow?

Yes, it was, but I don't have a snow plow.

That was a lot of work - but worth it I suppose.
