Global Warming and Our Driveway

SmileyCentral.comIt's below zero up here on the mountain. We're expecting 1-3 inches of snow, which translates to about 5-6 up here. That will be followed by rain and sleet tomorrow.

This constant freeze and thaw adds up to an impassable driveway. Paul designed it to channel melting runoff, and it does that very well, but it takes some time. If we get these constant freeze-and-thaw situations, there's never time for the runoff to run off, and our driveway turns into an ice chute.

Recommend bobsled -- or skeleton.
Adapt or die.

I feel that the backyard could accommodate a helipad, which I would prefer to a bobsled.

How about a funicular? They're so much more fun.
