Fun in the cold, but this is ridiculous

That earlier thread I posted, er, uh, can I take it back? Here in the Denver area we're looking at our fourth major snowstorm in three weeks heading our way, my road and driveway are in a perpetual cycle of being buried and plowed (we've had five feet so far), last night the winds gusted and howled up to 80 mph and blew the snow into deep drifts, the roads are a mess, the mounds of snow pushed off to the side everywhere are making this place look like Antarctica, and worst of all, I can't ride my bike!

Dnvr Fox, how're you surviving?

For me it is 1/4 mile to get off the ice to a plowed road.
GRUMPH!! My driveway, ~400 ft. long, is my own personal
glacier. If faces north-south but we live on the side of
Cheyenne Mtn. and the sun sets at ~2:30 so we have little
solar help. So much for the Colorado front range lie that
it never snows on snow!!
