Do you wait till it stop snowing
Original Message   Jan 21, 2014 4:44 pm
Between the wind - snow drifts, I prefer to wait till it's done snowing till I go out.....

However, my neighbor is antsy. Probably goes out every hr or so. He doe's his, then comes over and does mine, etc.

I'm led into a *followup* by going out a hr later, and doing mine and then his......

I wish he would follow my lead and just wait it out.
The wind just tends to level it much faster than till it's all nice and settled IMO

I might go out earlier if I don't want the driveway snow compacted with the home cars coming/going.

I generally wait it out providing no one is coming home and needs the driveway cleared to make the hill.   The very odd exception is in a prolonged storm dumping huge amounts of snow.  In those rare instances, I'll knock the snow down when it gets over a foot high.  One thing for sure, I'm not getting out of bed to do it! 

Snow has been only a fleeting memory for me the last month or so.  Been hunkered down here in Florida since early January.  Just as well, winter back home has been record breaking cold since early December.  It will probably be the longest continuous stretch of very cold temperatures in decades.  As much as I enjoy winter, when the wind makes it extremely uncomfortable and often dangerous, there's no joy in that.   Weather here has also been affected by the "polar vortex".   We had more than a few cold days in the high 30s to mid 40s.  Still a far cry from -38.8C without the wind and -53C with it.   Heading back north in a few days but the weather there isn't quite as extreme now.  Still going to be colder than normal but not as sever as December and January.
