Default Too much snow!

Can't believe this crap, tired of trying to shovel one handed already. Should have hired a snow removal crew.

How you guys all fairing in this crap?


By the way, is it my imagination, or are they not actually plowing roads, just dropping salt on many of them?

I haven't even checked how much snow we've got so far. I love clearing snow, now, since I have a 54" plow on my quad. It does very well, even in deep stuff (low range + pushbutton locking diff).

I'll do it tomorrow, we don't need to go anywhere today, so I'll let it all snow today, plow tomorrow.

I have a sweet snowblower. But the new house has a gravel driveway, so don't think that will work out too well.

Shoveling using only one hand/arm and kicking the shovel is getting old very quickly.

I don't seem to have problem with it. Just don't blow the snow towards anything or anyone valuable.


Great day for drifting in open parking lots!

Oh yeah! My neighbor passed me on the way to work today..............on his snowmobile.

I am here at work. Wasnt too bad when I came in.

I gave up shoveling when I moved to my current house. Just a path to where we park the trucks, and thats it.

Well, found out I can adjust the depth that is below the blades of the snow blower. So we lowered the skids about 3/4" and it only picks up the occasional bit of gravel. Not bad, so now can snow blow the driveway and save myself some hassle.

Still a pain in the ass to keep the snow cleaned off. Hard to control the snowblower with one hand. Hope my neighbor didn't plan to read todays paper.

My driveway is gravel too, try the snowblower, it works pretty good, still not gonna be easy with one arm though, I'm just getting over the flu so I don't know if I'll get out there today.
