    Strategies to reduce snow drifts?

    Anyone got any strategies to reduce snow drifts? Looking for ideas outside of putting up a snow fence because it's too late for that now.

    Just trying to prevent a ton of shoveling in my driveway tomorrow.

    If you have access to big wood pallets use them as a snow fence. Go out aways from your driveway and stack them 3-4 high. Leave a space of 4 foot or so between them. Use something like that as a snow fence now, doesn't look great but it will work.

    Fill 5-gallon buckets with snow and dump them in your bathtub. Should only take about 25,987 trips to clear the snow.

    Plant some shrubbery. Seriously you could still put up some type of snow fence on top of the snow you already have. You might have adjust it, when or if, the snow ever melts.
