Background: we have a two-car garage and a short driveway that is slightly less than two car lengths long. Before moving here, we lived in a townhouse with parking spaces in front.
When we had a snowstorm, we’d have to clear off the cars and shovel enough to keep our space clear. When we moved to this house, we were excited that we wouldn’t have to clear off the cars and nobody would park their cars halfway into our spaces because they were too damn lazy to clear enough room in their own reserved spot.
Then we realized that the driveway involves a whole lot more shoveling than the parking space did. :smack:
So, we’re about to get royally hammered with snow. I have this idea that if I park one of my cars at the bottom of the driveway, it’s a whole lot easier to brush snow off the car, and just back it out onto the (hopefully plowed) street - resulting in a lot less effort if we need to get out in a hurry. It might even be better to back it into the driveway so we’d pull forward onto the street.
- What’s wrong with this logic? and
- Would you do it that way?
