The "rush" to get it done before driving on it was motivated by the near impossibility of removing the snow once it had been compressed under the weight of the tires -- once departing for work and then, again, when returning home. And, the fear that any rain or daytime warming would result in that turning into a block of ice when it refroze.

So, I'd wait until the morning rush was over before even thinking about going outside (I like to sleep late :> ). And, if possible, wait until the plow had been by so his pass wouldn't undo my efforts at the curb!
