    Snow Drifts

    I had about a 4 foot snow drift in the front of my drive way when i got home and man was i ******. These snow plowers should not just leave that amount of snow in the drive way. I have seen 4 different cars on my street that didnt even see them and just ran into them and almost messed up their car. My solution to my problem was shovel the snow right back into the street so thats what i did(i guess that'll show them lol ). Anybody else have this problem with their drive ways? I hate it so damn much. My rant is over.

    It'll probably end up back in your driveway by morning, lmao. But yes, I'd imagine that getting annoying!

    Re: Snow Drifts

    i hate this as well, but luckily the development brings around a silverado with a plow to clear each driveway at the end...guess thats what my HOA goes to. Although I am starting to get a big frozen lip of ice built up at the end of my driveway

    Re: Snow Drifts

    Haha, I was lucky enough to get home last Friday just in time to do this exact same thing while the plow was doing my street. I just looked at the driver and waved as he went right on by and pushed my snow( probably right in front of my neighbors driveway).

    I have a couple neighbors with blades on their trucks, but they wont do anything other than their own drive way. A-Holes.

    Yeah, where else are the plows supposed to put the snow? Also, putting snow back in the street is illegal. Next time I hope you get caught.

    You've got quite a sense of entitlement. Do you feel they owe you for something? How about the plow drivers? Are they in your debt?

    Well i feel that a neighbor should be nice enough to help plow a 4 foot ice thick drift in your drive way while i stand there with my plastic shovel freezing my nipples off.

    If he likes you and he has time, I suppose he might. Maybe he doesn't like you.
