With up to 8 inches of snow falling overnight, somebody's gonna have to do some shoveling today.

Is that "lucky" person you?


Or do you barter with your spouse to avoid shoveling, offering to do some other odious household task instead, like ironing?

Or do you have some strapping teenage sons you can send outside to clear the driveway?

If you live in a condo or a townhouse, you're probably grateful your property manager hires a snow removal company. That makes sending in the monthly association fee a little less painful, doesn't it?
