One of the frustrations I feel after shoveling is when the snow plow comes by and drops a load of snow in the front part of my driveway and on my sidewalk. Something else that happens is the snow
'and ice build up by the front of my house.
I had an aha moment the other day when I saw the picture below.
To avoid more snow and ice build up in the front entry of your home, remove the snow from the roof area above your front door/patio area. If there a room with windows above the entry foyer, as in this
picture, this seems like the best approach. If not, from the front of your home, reach up to this part of
the roof with your shovel. I am vertically challenged, so I did the best I can :-).
It is a two step process, as you are pushing the snow to the front entry are your home before shoveling it onto the grass, but it is good for safety so neither you, nor your family members nor your friends slide or fall when leaving your home. And I am sure the mailperson, UPS and FedEx person will also appreciate this :-)
By the way, if you are selling your home, you don't want buyers and their agents to be falling on there way in and out of your house. And you want it to be safe to go in the house for inspections and the appraisal.
Life is good!
