Actually, if I remember correctly, their driveway is kind of northeast aspect in some shade, so it might not be that quick. I was driving past his street today, and I almost turned down to see if his driveway was, like, half snowy and half clear. Maybe I'll be more voyeuristic tomorrow.
Given the weather we're about to endure over the next several days, maybe you can just pop over and make sure someone else is handling Joe's walkway this week?
Nothing like a brisk -19 F overnight to kick start the day!
Wow! Greetings from a relatively balmy Fairbanks y'all. (It's only -10F today.)
[edit...Had to throw in some useless trivia...Did y'all know that there is only one time where you don't have to designate between degrees F and C? The two temperature scales cross at 40 below. And yes...we do spend a fair amount of the year hovering around that point here.]
