Snow Shoveling...Your Approach

So I've just shoveled a couple of driveways, and everybody was saying, "Why bother, it's just going to snow more." Well, using that logic, we'll never mow grass in the summer cause it's just going to grow back.

I'd personally rather shovel 8 inches twice, than have to shovel 16 inches once. And it's my sweat and effort anyway, not theirs.

What say you?

Heck of a storm here. 12" and more coming.

I would probably shovel at 4-5 inches than 8. I use a snow blower, had a long driveway when I lived in Indy and was tired off shoveling. I did not sell it when I moved down here neighbors laughed when I moved in with it and when we get a big snow for some reason they don't look happy..

Hop on tractor, drop grader box, push. Had every intention of my son doing it as I wanted him to know the value of hard work. I was walking around the court doing driveways when I was ten, he is 11. But I looked at the depth and saw it wasn't stopping so I will take care of it. I am waiting for it to stop

That's what I do. In fact I got several texts from my neighbor asking why I was shoveling while it was still coming down hard. Ever after getting the top earlier it;'s still deep for tomorrow. After tomorrow that same snow will be hard and almost impossible to shovel.

I say with snow this light and dry, fire up the backpack blower and blow it off the driveway and sidewalk like I did. Works good in this type of snow but not the typical heavy wet snow we usually get.

Went home after lunch and hit the drive about every hour and a half. Letting up in g-town now. Measured 10 inches in my yard.

My method is as follows...don't own a snow shovel. Let it sit until it warms up. Seems to work well at getting rid of all the snow with minimum effort.
I have been a fan of that method as well. Hard to believe it hasn't caught on more. I know the plow guys are making a killing at $100/hr

I usually just wait for the melt but doesn't look like that is going to happen any time soon.

12 yr old stepson, just looking for a reason to get outside, he was actually looking for the snow shovel but couldn't find it, that's ok though, I found it for him:highly_amused:

I live up the head of the holler with no neighbors in sight and a 4x4 I didn't shovel any today. Might make a path for my wife tomorrow but doubt it lol
