I'm on day 2 of working from home. I keep going out and doing the driveway. Although I left it for a while to leave some snow to soak up any rain. Plows just came by twice to fill the end of the driveway.


Is it bad that there'* no room for me to push the snow across the street anymore?

Yeah..wish I could say there was extra room. You've seen the setup so here'* the way it goes.

During the first couple of big storms I pushed it back to the tree on the front yard, say 10 feet. That'* a pile that I can no longer add to, about 4-5 feet high. The sideyard, had been snowblown back to the trees. That'* about 20 feet or more. There'* about 5 feet of grass left and maybe enough room to park the truck as well. That'* filling quick.

MTO reports 100+ cars in the ditch on a 140 km stretch of highway !!

The OPP has also said no plucking them out unless they pose a Danger to other vehicles.

I have been out plowing since 7am and I just went by the first place I did... 4+ inches since 7am !

Although bad here, it'* not as bad as they were saying. Still need to call in and talk to the supervisor. I got the receptionist, she said only 4 people came in. I really don't want to drive in. County roads are going to be bad.
