Well, I Won’t Be Parking There For a While

So, this morning I decided to move back closer to work, since the Snow Route Parking Ban was lifted. I figured, why not, easer and closer to walk to work (and I was up early anyways).

I packed up, drove to my usual spot near work, and continued driving all the way back to where is started from, here’s why . . .
 

You see, when they plough the road they only plough the part you drive on, pushing the snow to the part that you park on.

This is even worse for corners, such as where I park.

Let me clarify, you see, this is the close up of the ridge.
 

You can’t really tell where the curb is so for all you know, most of that might be lawn.

Here is the curb . . . I found it for you.
 

Here is the snow ridge with the curb there for reference and you see how much of the roadway is wasted.
 

If I park there, I will literally be parking in traffic, it is bad enough when there is no snow on the ground.

So, until it melts, or at least melts enough that I can drive over it (or, you know a large semi-truck drives over it a few times) I will be parking down where I am and walking.

Ah well, such is life and this too shall pass.

As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive, and keep moving forward!
