We had a snowstorm when we came back from Hawaii. We shoveled...and shoveled some more. We had it all clear on Sunday and woke up this Monday morning to MORE snow. This was CLEAR on Sunday so Dad could get out of the house.
I am just done with shoveling. We'd talked in Hawaii if we are to continue to live in a place that requires so much upkeep, we are going to have to either 1. hire help or 2. buy the tools to make the job easier. We simply are NOT in our 30's any longer and need to quit trying to work like we are. When we woke up this morning and Michael began talking about another day shoveling...I reminded him of our discussion and suggested he go buy a snow blower!
It hurt to spend the money, but it was WAY easier to deal with all the snow. Yes, we have a lawn tractor, and it has a "snowplow" on it...but y'all that thing is made for Oregon or Texas snow...not Alaska snow. It doesn't do a good job at all. I can see the advantage to getting a side by side with a snowplow that would make hunting accessible and help with the snow...but that is still way out of our budget. LOL
A man at Lowes was wondering why in the world Michael was buying a rototiller. He came up with a story about the best way to get a clean driveway is to churn up the snow and then blow it. LOL Alternately, he suggested we were planting snow peas and iceberg lettuce. LOL
