    Always bugs me to see a foot high pile of snow on someone's roof. If there is less than an inch of powder and I am in a hurry, I will often leave it, but not more than that. It only takes an extra 30 seconds to clear it on my Volvo V90.

    Sounds to me like the developer was being honery. You would think he would want to take good care of his first buyer and rely on him as a good reference. Like a model home....

My buddy would never had made it an issue if it was a a Town employee.

    We don't have much snow here, but this seems like a pretty good idea, I'll try it next time we get enough snow to plow.

    I've been told that I am too negative and always being critical, but it sure seems to me that our world is getting more stupid and less caring. I just try to do the right thing myself and encourage others to do the same... sometimes a nice word with them, other times some good old fashion passion is needed.

    30 yrs ago when I was young and single I was driving along late one night and had to make a left turn after stopping at a stop sign. There had been a heavy snowfall that night and the plow driver drove straight through this intersection without doing the usual sweep around the corner. He left a bank about a foot or two across the road and I saw it after leaving and starting into my turn, as soon as I saw it I hit the gas in order to make it over but all I did was spin half way around and planted myself lengthwise on the mound 90degrees to the main traffic. I stopped the next car coming along which turned out to be an ex girlfriend and had to ask her to drive my car while I pushed it off the bank. Quite embarrassing and I'll forever hold it against that driver whoever he was.lol.

    I clear about 120 feet from the edge of my driveway(my mailbox is 50 ft. before the drive), to keep the township plow truck from plowing me in. I only have the Massey to clear my snow with..........You wouldn't believe the amount of snow that I bucket up into my yard from the roadway
