We finally got our snow for the winter. Four to six inches. After having lived in Minnesota for twelve years and in South Bend for four, that's not much snow, but given Milwaukee's recent winters, we take what we can get.

So, I was shoveling at 6:00 this morning. Why so early? Today is garbage/recycling day, so I had to clear a spot to put the garbage can and recycling bin out by 7:00. I also had to clear a path for the car, which my wife had to take out at 8:30.

Query: Is there a technical term for that stuff that the snow plow leaves at the end of your driveway? I'm not talking about the word I use when I'm trying to hack it apart with the shovel!
