Well we got clobbered today.  It was definitely the Snowmageddon they have been predicting for the past 4 years. Not sure what the final total will be, but  I know I shoveled at least 10 inches of snow from our driveway. 

Nessie looks like she's drowning!

Me supervising LOL!
The west side of our driveway, yes we do have a slight bank as our driveway slopes.  Our house is a raised bungalow & the garage is under the living room.  Imagine shoveling and hiffing the snow up and over this bank.  It got worse as the day when on.  Four times shoveling today and counting.  The thing covered with snow beside the metasequioa tree is an inukshuk.  Not that you can tell.

Every winter the snowplow operator has trouble knowing where the end of our driveway is.  We get a lot of packed snow at the end of our driveway making it hard to shovel and actually get out of our driveway.  He doesn't seem to know where the curb is.   Bruce put these reflectors at the end of our driveway to see if this would help the situation.  Today there was obviously more snow on the east side of the driveway than the west.
