Here's an idea.
Get a bit of old carpet the length and width of your garden path, or several lengths of old carpet, to track down your driveway, to the street.
Lay your carpet. When it snows, the snow will fall on the carpet, rather than directly onto the part you want kept clear of snow. In the morning, find the edge of your carpet nearest your house. Lift up the end of the carpet, and then roll it over. Keep rolling. If you are doing it right, you end up with a Swiss Roll made of carpet and snow, that you can roll off to the side, and one pristine path way as well.
In the case of a drive, get two long lengths of carpet, and lay them out, along the track your cars tyres would normally take to the street. Perform the same jiggery pokery as before. You now have a drivable driveway, and now only have to deal with the snow on the street.

THIS is so true of a lot of cities in the South...
our city is not equipped to deal w/it
I've lived up north and they are!
I've lived down south and we are not!
Remember about two years ago...maybe...Atlanta was devastated from the ice that came...
At 3:38 AM, on January 28, the winter storm warning was expanded northward, to include all except the northern exurbs. Despite this coming more than two hours before school systems' 6 am deadline to call off classes and notify local media, and the fact that the previous advisory predicted plenty enough snow to make driving dangerous, and that prior releases noted the northward trend may require expansion of the warning, many superintendents, including those of Douglas County Schools, Cobb County Schools, Marietta City Schools, Fulton County Schools, DeKalb County Schools, Decatur City Schools, Cherokee County Schools, Paulding County School District and Gwinnett County Schools, failed to cancel school until it was too late. Some superintendents apologized, including those for Douglas and Atlanta, while Cobb superintendent Hinojosa refused to acknowledge his failure, and even went so far as to claim that he "wouldn't have done anything different", despite students being stuck on school buses for hours, and some having to spend the night in schools.
I know it's not the same but, thanks for the warning...
Gulf Coast Storm
Another interesting snowstorm...
The Blizzard of '93
But, really, no one NEEDS an excuse to go buy stuff (liquor) it's just nice to HAVE one!
