Snow in the driveway got you down? Check out these shoveling strategies!
Discouraged by the snow covering your driveway? Want to lessen your shoveling time? We have some strategies!
The first thing to keep in mind: Don’t plow or throw your driveway snow into the street. Not only is it illegal, but it’s incredibly dangerous.
Why? The snow melts over the already salted roads, refreezes and creates a patch of ice.
Drivers going the speed limit, including your neighbors and snowplow drivers, could easily lose control and slide into the opposing lane. A good thing to keep in mind: Your snow is your responsibility.
What about the bothersome “second shovel”?
Picture this: Your driveway is completely shoveled, and you’re sitting by the fireplace inside, relieved that you’ve finished the job.
Before you know it, another snowplow comes by and pushes a huge amount of snow into the end of your driveway. Is there a way to avoid this?
Try our “second shovel” buster! Shovel (in the direction of traffic) a “corner” of the right-of-way about 3 feet before the driveway. Freeing this area of snow will leave it open to hold the snow coming off plows, and hopefully prevent you from having to shovel your driveway again.
