The following has happened to us a couple of times this winter. David would leave for work and the driveway would be clear of snow. Then it would snow throughout the day.
As a result, David would come home to find 4-5 inches of snow in the driveway, plus mountains of snow from the little plowing machine that clears all of the city sidewalks.
The result? The car would get beached on the driveway skirt!
Off we go a-shovelling!
