We have a tractor with a huge bucket...so husband plows us out. When he was gone away to work for 18 months... I would wake up in the morning to my barking dog. Look out the window to see someone from church plowing me out. I've never had to worry about it.
We live in a commercial area and what I have to shovel is a 20ft x 5ft section of sidewalk. Which technically I don't even need to do that because the city plows the sidewalks. But I like a perfectly clean sidewalk and the city doesn't do that.
So far as where we park our cars, the city plows that area too.
This year has been a very mild winter and I've only had to shovel once so far. Except for that one time, any snow that's fallen has melted the next day.
I love to shovel but we didn't get enough snow this year. We have 2 snowblowers and one is hard to start and the other one is electric start but I've never tried it before since it's so huge. I let my husband snowblow.
