Stop copying my ideas mad.gif

32" on ground in one nights dumping.

I can't even plow it with a pickup.

I would have to hold the leaf blower up at my waiste to get the surface.

My snowthrower cut through the pow-pow like a hot knife through butter even though it was up over the top of it. That goodness it was dry snow. It took a few hours though, especially once I got through the plowdrift onto the road to clear the mailbox.

We had two Sno Throwers rockings. (both brand new) and a pick up with a plow.

My parents own a few homes. There is basically 6 homes to do. Since they rent three rental properties they are responsible for those.

My dad has a truck with a plow. But he is 65 and we don't like him doing the hard work himself. My brother and I help out with the heavy lifting.

Problem was his driveway is 300 feet long with bushes along the edge. The truck would not plow it. We had over 30"

So my sno thrower and my brothers... each of us on one. We did it. My bros house, Parents house, My house... and the three rental places.

It took all day. I was exhausted.

Normally lighter now we just plow and never get out of the truck. This was the first time I was unable to plow because the accumulation was so great.

I actually like snow and living in NE. I don't mind at all. It helps to get way to FL or a vacation a few times per year though.

My dad is leaving Wednesday for a month in FL. I'm Jelly...

I've always thought it was choice -
Run between heated buildings in the winter if you live in the snow belt.
Or air-conditioned buildings in the summer if you live in the sun belt.
Ideally I need two homes.
