It's not right.... three storms inside of one week. I can handle snow with no wind, wind with no snow or rain with wind but I so totally dread snow with wind. Now, it just so happens that OUR driveway gets hammered with deep drifts, then along comes the snowplow to add to the equation, leaving a couple feet of heavy snow in between giant 4-5 foot snowbanks. This is because we're on a slight incline so it's all pushed up and deposited in our driveway. The winds blow snow from the north (not good), the northeast (worse than not good) and east (the very worst). What happens is the drifts tend to fill in to the same height as the snowbanks. Are you drawing a mental picture? I look out at the two homes across the street and they barely have anything worth shoveling. It makes me sad, mad, frustrated - to say the least.
The forecast is showing a break in the weather with some sunny days but I fear it will take weeks for these massive snowbanks to disappear. It's disheartening but I know it won't last much longer, however, forecasters are saying it's not over yet. I hope they're wrong. Hubs cleared the massive drifts late this afternoon but they're filling in again and it's not even snowing anymore. Thanks wind... thanks for nothing. I don't like you, wind.
These photos show the aftermath of Monday's storm which was on the heels of Friday's storm (the one with all the ice), so you can imagine how it looks out there now. Actually, I won't know just how bad until I open my eyes upon waking. It's not something I look forward to whatsoever.
