DailyDirt: Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow… (Ok, Stop!)

from the urls-we-dig-up dept

Maybe this past weekend was a bit snowy for you if you live on the East Coast. Shoveling your driveway, and then shoveling it again, and then digging through the big mound of snow where the street meets your driveway — fun times, for sure. If you were wondering if anyone had a robot snowblower, wonder no more.

Take snow-shovelling advice from a New Yorker?

I’m just barely holding back my laughter/derision/annoyance. Well, not really.

I recall, some years back, a YouTube video (title: “Snowpocalypse”) where the videographer was showing off just how huge the “major” snowfall was, while out walking his dog. The snow was so high it was grazing the dog’s belly (a pug, FFS!). Sigh.

While the coal shovel is a good shape it has two flaws: 1) the blade is steel, which adds to the work load; 2) the handle is too short as it’s designed for working in tight spaces, so you keep having to bend over. It’s a recipe for a heart attack.

I checked out Canadian Tire’s, a cross-Canada hardware store, for their selection of 5-star rated snow shovels. One of the winners was an aluminum version of the coal shovel with a longer shaft. This, plus a snow scoop, would be the ideal combination.
