For us, we have a little Aveo, with good winters, but couldn't get our driveway plowed as all our regular guys had broken equipment. Our neighbour came over and hand shiveled for us on New Year's Eve. At 63, I can't shovel any more. Just too hard on the old body. Beautiful and sunny today, at -6, I like to go for brisk walks, to see if there are any fresh critter tracks. Saw some Cougar tracks.
Hope the weather moderates for all you folks back east.


Have you considered an ATV? Thats what we use. We have a long country driveway and my now 60 year old father can plow the snow with it. My parents love it as it can do a lot of heavy lifting and carrying for them.

w had a brief break in the weather for two days and it was lovely, only -10 felt downright warm compared to what we have had and now back in the deep freeze, all those on the east coast in this weather bomb as they are calling it stay safe.

Yay, plus 2 today, and snowing lightly. Yes, Rachel, we are considering an ATV with blade. Wouldn't mind one with a blower attachment also. Could do wonders with that set up. Can't buy an ATV/quad anywhere right now, as everyone else has the same ideas. Definetly keeping our eyes open for one, as it would be fun to go to the beach on one.....in the summer, that is.
