    not sure where to post this...... I plowed my driveway and left a large amount of snow up near the garage like I normally do- the driveway slopes down and usually it will melt and drain in the street- the issue is - none of it melted and i have a large pile and another storm coming. Any recommended ways to melt the snow?? it's going to be cold the next few days- Will some type of salimander heater work?? looking to just knock it down a bit so I have a place to put the snow for the next storm

    Are you living in a parallel universe? It was Sunny and above freezing for almost a week and your telling us that none of it melted?

    Almost everything is melted here, yes even packed snow on the streets.

    At least entertain us with a picture.

    Poke some holes in it, insert a cardboard paper towel tubes which are pack full of 3or4F black powder and set it off.
    Or buy a keg, have a party and piss on it.

    My suggestion; in the future, don't stack in front of the garage.
