(“Blindfold, please!”) Didn't want to be rude to an obviously hardworking person. Instead he pulls into our driveway and finishes the job for me, including my neighbor's side. Took him less than 45 seconds. What a guy! What a plow!
Had the same experience yesterday. Not so much them doing anything *for* me but I was out particularly early clearing the corner and rather than pile me in while I was out clearing the area in front of and around the corner in the street, they drove by and down the other side of the street and waited to clear our side. They also took care to not stuff the corner back up. However today, completely different. 5'-6' high pile about 5' wide across the entire corner. The other three corners, knee high. Not to mention the 5' pile shoved up over the sidewalk adjoining our 4' high drift in the yard. Walking down our sidewalk is like walking through a mini-canyon.
Grateful for the care on Tuesday morning, not thrilled about the dump today. I know it has to go somewhere but does 80% of it have to find its way on to our corner alone? This is one of those times I yearn for the self-propelled two-stage we once had. It doesn't help our little one is in need of new rotors. Our single-stage snow thrower is more of a single-stage snow dropper.
