Hmm well my cousin, when she was living at our house in the snow belt, firmly believed that she didn’t need to shovel to get out of the driveway. She backed up and ended up mostly in the front yard and not in the driveway (no previous tire tracks to guide her) and then got stuck. Called a friend from 45 min away to come dig her out. She, apparently, was unaware of how you operate a snow shovel.
1, 2, 3, 4. Shovel around my house and my mother’s house down the street. A few of us have pitched in a few bucks to have someone plow the private road to the back of our houses when the snow is sizable. Use an electric snowblower for my driveway. The neighborhood pitches in to help each other when we have really big snows.
@callow My snowblower is electric too. Which is actually kind of silly as my driveway is about 145’ long. But I’d rather deal with the cord issue once or twice a winter than gas, oil, and prepping it for summer storage. People never believe the amount of torque electric snowblowers have and how well they work.
