The first ice

I might have had some difficulty coming up with a title :-)  This pressure ridge of ice is almost inevitable.  When it snows, the snow plow pushes it from the middle of the street off to the side.  I can't get my car off of the street, so they have no choice but to plow it in a heap next to my car.  If I am diligent, I dash out and shovel it all by hand to the curb side of the car.  If I am not so diligent, it freezes and becomes very difficult to remove, leaving this ridge of ice.  You can see how the sun managed to melt some of it by the now-frozen puddles in the street.  This will stay here until we get a really big storm; when that happens, the city requires the cars to come off the street so they can use a big front end loader to remove the snow.  That machine will hardly notice this little bit of ice, and it'll be gone with the snow.
