We moved into our house in 2007. Since then, the Metro Detroit area has had above average snowfalls every single season up until this winter. Having had to shovel / snow blow the driveway over the past four years, I can definitely attest to the above average snowfalls.
This year, though, we’ve had virtually none, with one real snowfall to speak of just last weekend. Before that, I hadn’t had to shovel the driveway once, let alone use the snowblower.
Thinking about it, I probably should have known that this would happen, since I put a significant upgrade into our driveway this past year.
Ever since we’ve moved in, shoveling has proven to be a nuisance, because of uneven slabs in the driveway. Over time, some of the slabs sunk or shifted, and it always happened that the higher edges were the path that I would be shoveling.
