Time to get a snowblower? Mine is 5-6 carlengths long plus one in the oversized single garage, but single wide (mutual drive with neighbour). Couldn't live without one.

The word "snow" shall not be uttered until December.

It'* nuts, yeah. My neighbour and I stagger our parking, so we cross over each other'* sides and pretty much never have to move a car due to a 'single' driveway. It runs alongside the entire front lawn, house, and part of the backyard (where it meets the external garage).

Snow drifts off the roof in the winter too. Dumps it ALL between the houses. Snowblowers are cheap now maybe now that it'* spring, if Morty don't have one yet, I strongly suggest if it the driveway really is long. You gets get good snow, right?

Congrats! Seems house hunting is the new hobby for BC, next to buying parts from BillyBoy.

The Missus and I are still hunting for that "perfect place".....

This has been a real challenge. I have really strict requirements because of what I do for a living and my own hangups about growing up in a cramped apartment building as a kid.

First, I need any place I settle down to be within 10 miles of the company'* primary datacenter. Its not like I'm involved in the day to day issues anymore, but that thing is my firstborn. I want to be near.

Second, there'* an aqueduct right near my house with over 50 miles of trails and preserves. Mrs. Mortehl and I have grown rather attached to walking and biking on it. We want to be close to it. Right now we need to walk accross it to get to where our cars are parked, but the new place is a couple blocks from another section of the trail. Best of both worlds.

I can't believe i didn't notice this new development sooner. There'* 4 new homes being put up. We claimed the one that most represented both of our desires. Hers that there is space for an English garden, plus space in the back for an herb garden. Mine for space where I can park baby for the winter, plus leave the beater out.
