That's What Fam Is For...
My in-laws offered to truck their heavy snow blowing equipment to assist with the dig. The roads were treacherous at best and it seemed like a lot of hassle for them just to come over to do that part. They came over anyway and not only finished up the part of the driveway I left but also created a space for a third car to park, did the sidewalks, cleared a path for the mailman, and parts of our neighbors driveways (brownie points for the future I am sure). All I could really do was shovel snow here and there and watch (and plot & scheme for what blower I'm buying during the summer at a reduced rate). So, all-in-all, they helped me out.
I paid my worker with a load of beer and gratitude. I'm heavier on the bubble now when they call looking for some assistance :)
