Snow shovels

So how does everyone clear their driveway?

I know it depends on how big the driveway is. My driveway can fit seven cars but we still do it by hand. Most of my neighbors hire contractors, but they never have a clean driveway. I like mine scraped clean so that a minimum of snow gets tracked into the house.

I used to make fun of these shovels, but I bought one the other day and they are GREAT!! A lot less bending over involved with that bent handle

You have to shovel snow? I did not know that, it never stays around here long enough to even find a shovel.

Winter finally kicked in up here.
When we get snow, it stays on the ground till April.
Sad, but true.

We may set a record for snowfall in one day today, just 3" so far but as much as 15" expected. In 20 years I only shoveled the driveway once, and learned my lesson. All that work and then a snowplow comes by and pushes it back.

We have two 4WD vehicles so we just mush through it, and it's usually melted away within a few days or a week.

We've had a really easy winter so far. The guys running the plows etc are laughing. Not a lot of snow on the ground, but what's there will probably be there till the end of March.

These are from just before Christmas. It was one of the only snow squalls we had, but it was timed well and managed to give us a white Christmas at the last minute. Not much of a shoveling challenge though.

These are a little more recent, but still no real snow.
A few years ago at this time our snowbanks were over 6 feet high around now.
I like easy winters

I cleared the snow off our vehicles last night, now the Liberty is pretty well hidden, and my truck has a good 5". In all we've had about a foot.

Hydronic heated driveways and a self propelled, Briggs and Stratton powered, snow blower for the 3' to 4' berms the county snow plow leaves in the shoulder of the road.
