me vs. the driveway

It has become my nemesis. Always covered in ice, snow, slush. You name it and I’m shoveling it. Today was no different. Not enough snow to use the snow blower and too much to leave there to melt on its own. Two inches of wet, heavy, heart attack snow. Fat globs of slush plop on my neck from overhanging branches. A foot of dirt and ice clog the entrance, left there by accomplice plows. My shoulders scream for mercy but my arch enemy won’t let me rest. It’s me or the driveway. One of us isn’t going to make it out of this winter alive.

ps. Anyone have a jackhammer I can borrow? Um. No reason.

    BOTH of our cars got stuck in the driveway yesterday, which resembles a lumpy luge run.

    I feel your pain.

    I’m right there with you. After an hour of chopping ice on Sunday, my husband told me to give it up. I told him “No way – now it’s personal.” So done with winter. Spring, where are you?

    Ouch! At least it’s February, so Spring is in sight!

    We have a steep driveway and it’s always a challenge to keep it clear this time of year. I was out yesterday moving the slush around so it didn’t freeze up this week. yuck.
    Think spring.
