|John clears a path with the snow scoop down our driveway to the street. It didn't drift as much here as other places.|
|A good foot of snow, though. Thankfully not wet and heavy, but still a struggle.|
|John's truck misses its old SoCal home|
|Snow had drifted around 3' high. It was halfway up my thighs as I walked around the truck.|
- Buy a snowblower. Pro: will clean driveway with less back-breaking effort. Cons: Limited place to store it since our garage is small and our barn far enough away from the main driveway to make it awkward. Also still involves standing out in snow for hours to clear.
- Learn how to plow and keep Dad's truck at our house when he's away. Pro: Definitely easier to clear, we can sit in the comfort of the truck and push major amounts of snow out of the way with minimal physical effort. Cons: We don't have as much experience as Dad and could break the truck, have an accident, wreck the lawn, etc. Also limited parking arrangements -- would we store one of our vehicles at Dad's while we have his truck at our place? Would we just park the plow truck in front of John's truck and play musical vehicles for a while?
- Move to a different house with a 2 car garage so at least we didn't have to dig a vehicle out during each storm.
- Move to a different house in a much warmer climate where snow is a novelty.
