I hate shovelling snow. My driveway is an odd shape, has a nasty slope, and there is no hope of ever using the snowblower on it.
When the snow is not “back-breakingly heavy” it’s not so bad. The light fluffy stuff (as long as no one has walked, or driven on it) can’t be taken care of without too much trouble. There is a catch though… When it snows like it has over the past 24 to 36 hours, it really becomes the driveway that never ends, and I finish the driveway just in time to head out and shovel the driveway again.
Good luck to you as we shovel out of the end of 2017.
