Two hours. That is two hours worth of shoveling off part of the drive, shoveling the top layer off another part and using the plow to finish. Only about 3/4 of the drive done, but I can easily get out now. It is hard to tell from the pic (I should have had one of the kids stand in the frame) but the pile down the side of the drive is knee deep to me and nearly level with the rest of the yard. Great for sledding. Sucks to shovel.
I'm WHIPPED! Dang.
This is the cause of my frustration:
Snow + Ice layer + snow.
Dark layer is the driveway. White line in the middle is the inch of ice. Top layer still accumulating as I took this pic.
B holding a chunk of the ice layer with snow on top. This was the top half of what needed shoveled...because it was too heavy for the yard tractor to plow.
Winter is my LEAST favorite season.
I'd apologize for the dark pics but that's what you get in NE Ohio in winter...gloom, doom, yuk.
Makes me want to crawl in a cave and sleep for 4 months.
Though thankfully we have the snow front and back of this storm and not an "ice storm" like so many other do around and to the south of us. THAT nasty mess is way more worth of complaining about than what I have to deal with. I hope you all are safe down there!
