Not so snowy frustration

For your FYI: You CANNOT snowblow ice. Nor can you snowblow “snow” that has accumulated less than a half of an inch.

This morning as I was leaving my apartment I almost slipped and got killed on the crusty black ice coating that had covered the sidewalk – there was no actual “snow” on the sidewalk and it looked deceptively safe. As I am scraping the 1/4 inch of ice off of my car, I hear/see a maintenance man snowblowing the sidewalks.

I was seconds away from taking my combination scraper/squeegee and beating the shit out of him for “playing” with his blower when all he really needed to do was put down some salt.

It is time to migrate south…. much, much, more south.
