Early morning wall of ice delivered by benevolent state

In my latest National Post column I point out that only the government would put a big wall of wet snow and ice across your driveway to solve its snow-on-a-public-street problem and expect you to be grateful. P.S. A correspondent alerts me that the proper name for such a thing is a "windrow". Which beats a lot of things you might call it when you get up in the morning in a hurry to get to work or school and find it there sneering at you.
