Maybe what we aren't seeing are the guardrails and crash pads lining the outside of the curve because SCG was standing just inside them to take the picture.  Ever thought of putting vertical "lane keepers" in the driveway like they have on the car rides at Disneyland? :D

That's what the snow banks are for.

100 lbs of rock salt later and... it's still awful

I would have to just stay home and inside for the duration. There is no way I would attempt that curve. Beautiful picture, but envy you...I do not.

SCG, that is the prettiest quilting I've ever seen.  It's beautiful!

It's all fun and games until the entire flock is dead because of poor biosecurity practices.

Went and got salt/sand from the town today (they limit you to two 5 gallon buckets a day) and had another bucket from a previous trip. That helped the top of the driveway but I will have to wait for BF to go get his 2 buckets to do the curve. UPS just got stuck in it, hauled 2 big packages up the rest of the way in their crampons, only to get to my door for me to tell them those belong to the house next door with the nice, short, flat driveway.

snort......  :gig  Now would be a good time to use Drone delivery...

 

SGC that driveway looks like a skating rink.   I have 1.5 miles of dirt road before my house  and it snows ...  but it never looks like that  even the stretch that is actually a stream bed...  of course we dont get real snow like you do.

Yeah, I just minced my way down to the mailbox, duck walking all the way. Got back to the house and told DH that we needed to start recycling the stove ash to the ice or we would never make it either out of the driveway or back into it again on Wednesday when we have to take the diabetic cat to the vet for his monthly check up. It makes the ice and snow ugly as sin but it really works.
