I've got a great old Sears shovel that's teflon-coated. Do they still sell those? That thing is a treasure. Nothing sticks to it.

I've also heard cooking spray can help, though I've never tried that.

I needed your shovel.

Plow must have gone by last night sometime between midnight and dawn.

On the plus side, it took me about five minutes to clean up my driveway apron. We now have several blocks of good solid speed bump, which will discourage speeders. So there's that.

Soglin must be feeling some heat over the city's response to the (near) record snowfall.

Mayor to review response to blizzard

He should. I realize this was another big storm, but for the love of all that is holy, THIS IS WISCONSIN. They should know how to do plowing by now. The response in our neighborhood was a complete joke. A real snowplow never went through, to my knowledge. All we got was one pickup with a plow trying to clean up the mess about 10 am Friday morning. Meanwhile, when we finally got out to the main road (about 4 blocks away), there was a full-size plow cleaning up little bits left in the parking lane. That seems extremely backwards to me.

Now that we've had the time to wander through town we've come to the conclusion that our street isn't all that different from almost every other residential street in the city, including the ones that we know got plowed during the storm. Most of them are just as rutty and ice packed as ours.

The guy driving the big recycling truck didn't look happy at all as he bounced past our house.

I had to do some neighborhood driving on the west siyeed on Saturday (Hoyt Park area) and it was a heck of a lot better back there than on our north side streets. I even went through the parkway and had no issues ... it was very well cleared.

I love snow. The more snow, the better.

Kurt, are you dug out from the last one? How much did you get?
