Never heard of this before. Sounds nifty. I would love to hear all about it after you try it out.

I'm sure that I didn't do it right,
but it sure was FUN!!!

DH was napping and I just couldn't stay inside any longer,
so I did not get any in-service training in this matter,
but he said it looked good and that
we'll make another one tomorrow out front

… and still another one …



My first Snow Plow FINALLY!
I was getting a little concerned that
we'd be stuck for a week.
We've kept the drive and walkways pretty much
snow-free, but the roads in our area hadn't
been plowed until this afternoon.
So we finished off the job and cleared the
end of the drive.
I think we'll stay put until the sun comes out to
de-ice the roads though.

I showed this to DH and he exclaimed,
"If we need one of those, we're moving back to Hawaii!"

Not bad for a first try Kgirl. But, it does remind me of this (NSFW): https://gagmemes.blogspot.com/2019/0...our-dalek.html

After the last snow we had earlier this month,

Best $7 I ever spent!

Taxy, we get a little here "in the middle of the desert", but nothing like THIS!
We read in the newspaper this morning that they haven't had a snow storm like this since 1967!

[sorry for the sideways photo... I gotta `member not to do that]
We got another 5 1/2 inches overnight and 2 more during the day today. It looks like we're done, I hope … fingers crossed

K-Girl, you are having WAY too much fun with this snow thing. BTW, make sure the next "snowperson" gets a waist and a neck.
