Here is an observation of human behavior. It seems to me that there are two types of people. Those who put the roll of toilet paper on the holder with the tissue overlapping the roll. And those who just leave the roll laying on the floor. Or folks who keep the inside of their car clean and those who use fast food wrappers for car mats. And in Minnesota, those people who clean and scrap their driveways and those who just don't. In the grand scheme of things it really is no matter which habits prevail but as for me, I'm a scraper. It just seems if you keep a little section of your driveway clear, spring will come sooner. Well we just had 2 days of freezing rain and then cold. But thanks to driveway salt and my wife's help, we've managed to clear our driveway as you can see.
The outcome of our efforts though is a rather large glacier at the end of the driveway. With the forecast for tonight of 14 below zero, it doesn't seem that the glacier will be headed south anytime soon.
