This is my back yard. I've had to start three snow piles. The one to the left and middle are over 5 feet tall. This is snow that I shoveled off half my driveway and then used the snowblower to put it into piles.
View of sidewalk. The pile to the left was created from the yucky stuff the plows push into the end of my driveway. It's almost as tall as I am.
The snow bank that goes down the left side of my driveway is four to five feet tall. Taller than the hedges which you can see peeking out up by the house. This snow bank stretches from the end of the driveway all the way over to the pine tree.
This the first year the steam from the white pipe created an icicle from the ground up. It's probably eight to ten inches in diameter.
