Can you get some sand from your highway department? Most towns have such. I keep a pail full for when the corner gets really icy.
I can, or at least I used to be able to, and in any case I know another town where I could steal some (Westford, where Nancy lives). It's not such a big deal, though. The Subaru is fully capable of driving into the garage as is, and the driveway isn't long or steep or anything but straight. The biggest issue would be if we were to get a big storm on top of what's still there, because it's lumpy enough that using the snowblower would be a challenge. What's in the forecast is warm and maybe rain, so I'm optimistic that I'll be down to pavement soon.
