Stuart, does that mean you have to mow grass all year long??? I wish I could just let it melt but unfortunately I need to go for groceries and my wife still travels to work so I have no choice but to clean up. That said I still like our 4 seasons the snow just gives us a reason to complain. Won't be all that long and the crocus will push up through the last snow.Glenn, if you were nervous or uneasy you would be asking for an incident. As far as blowing and shoveling stop wasting time and let it melt come spring. Of course that is easy for me to say. We will be 77 today with a low of 56 and the last snow to stick for more than an hour was 3 or 4 years ago.
