Ok...maybe Winter isn't over yet and we could get a few more storms.  One of the things that's always a pain in the ass is when you've shoveled or thrown then the plow comes by and blocks you in your driveway with a mountain of snow that you nearly have to risk your life removing.  Now there's a way to prevent that from happening and I wish I would've known about this sooner.

In fact, there's an instructional video from, believe it or not, the Missouri Department of Transportation.  I've tried variations of the same system but never got it right.  So today I'm trying it for the first time and thankful that, so far this winter, we haven't needed to do this that often.  Try it and let me know how it works.
