Winter Weather Finally Returns to New York City Area

Dave Aiello wrote, "Despite the fact it took me 4 hours and 20 minutes to get from New York City to Denville last night, I am pleased to report that we are experiencing a real winter in the New York Metropolitan Area this year. I have not bothered to measure the snow fall exactly, I'll leave that to others. I estimate that 15 to 18 inches of snow fell in Denville yesterday. For the entire season, I'm sure that we have recorded the most snow since 1996."

"In order to stay in good physical shape, I decided to do as much shoveling as possible around the house where I live. I have shoveled this winter for perhaps 10 hours in total. That seems like a lot to me. Last night, I started shoveling at 9:00 and finished around 11:00pm."

Dave Aiello continued:

The best discovery this winter, from a quality of life perspective, has been that we seem to be able to prevent problems with water in our basement when we get rain after heavy snow, or we get run-off from melting snow. The solution has not required us to regrade the driveway or install a great deal more drainage (as we thought). It simply required us to shovel all of the snow off of the paved areas of our property.

We got this understanding by pure luck, because I was looking for an aerobic alternative to running when the sidewalks are covered with four or five feet of snow which has been plowed off the adjoining street. What a bonus!
