    Yep, same driveway I called a loader to do for me last week. So much snow and drifted in that I came to a complete stop with snow coming over the top. It is about 100 yards long, straight run, three feet of white crap.

    I may have said this to you before, but I think it is time for you to buy a loader.[​IMG]

    Heck I do not even know what day it is any more. I took yesterday off and just layed around and had some beer. I think I tore some ligaments in my elbow from shoveling also. Hurts like the dickens.

    Believe me, be glad you are not here. It has been sno H.E.L.L here

    Pretty big expense to buy a loader for a freak year. I do a lot of other work between storms and will just call the other guy when I need help. The way the wind has been blowing all day, it is on it's way east now.

    Dodge 3/4 Cummins, Boss V, has always been enough until this year.

    I took pictures today, but it looks like the TV when the cable goes out, just white snow. I had to back out of the driveway and could not even see where I came in at.

    Yep, just stopped, would not move any more. Yes it was in V, not straight, not angled and not inverted V. No where on the sides for it to go. Just had the drive widened last week and widened it again the other day. This drive was nearly 1 1/2 trucks wide until today. LOL Now it isn't even as wide as my truck. :D

    maybe you should be more like REPO_MAN and try to drive over the piles? and just raise thier driveway a little ;)

    soooooo.......why couldn't you shovle the drive? the people on the other side of the drift may have had a hair appointment or something :D

    or or maybe llm's meyer's would have done the trick?;)

    They may have had an appointment for their hair, but it would have been in Florida as that is where they are at right now. Smart people. I sure do miss LLM.

    Grand, that is just too funny. :D
