I have TWO related questions about the phrase "dig out".
First Question: Is there a difference between these two sentences?
- The town is digging out from the snow.
- The town is digging out from under the snow.
Are "dig out from the snow" different from "dig out from under the snow"? Sentences using both versions could be found on google.
Second question: Suppose there was a snowstorm with several feet of snow.
- He dug out his car.
- He dug out his driveway.
I found both versions on google. But, "dig out a driveway" seems weird compared to "dig out a car". One can realistically get a car out of snow by digging. But a driveway is stationary. The most one can do is to clear the snow off the driveway. So, would "dig out a driveway" be wrong?
