Thank You!

This site is really great for even common sense solutions. Somebody recently suggested to push a light snow fall forming it into a higher pile then snow blow it . Holy moly that worked great. Sometime the obvious just eludes us, or me anyway .

just tell her 'don't EVEN try to figure out why we do what we do' (if most the time we don't know why.. how could she?)

This sounds like trouble to me. After she says she cooked, cleaned the house, went grocery shopping and took care of the kids all day, the next line will be - "I think YOU should sleep on the couch tonight", and maybe the next few nights too.
I personally find it quite peaceful and relaxing to be out in a blizzard alone, knowing when I'm done, I'll have a nice warm body to sleep next to instead of a snoring dog on the couch.

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

I just used this technique this morning for two reasons. One, because my neighbor told me during the last storm that he can not handle any more snow on the other side of the fence. (Of course I had to bite my tongue and not say, well if you bought a real sno thro instead of using that SOAB'n putt putt machine that you have, life would be a lot easier for everyone. Or we could just take the d _ _m fence down and be done with the problem all together, but that would be too easy and to simple of a solution. And as we all know, unless you are the one who is doing the job and the one having the hard time, no one understands. The second reason is because I do not like rethrowing snow because it gets matted down and becomes harder to clear. So needless to say, I got a real good workout carrying snow almost 80' now.
