    I have the right to own AND use a snow shovel. A right I enjoy frequently.
    Four are close at hand.
    If there is snow ,I can use a shovel to move snow.
    Depending on type and depth ,multiple things can be done with snow. From insulating a structure , to art work, to simply making piles of it where desired.
    The plow on the truck does the heavy work.
    Might put a plow on the seventy year old tractor next year. Just for fun....
    Each years snow contributes to the water table/ aquifer. A good thing.

    We ain't got that much snow so far this year, but this pic from last year shows how it's done. It ain't so bad if you got grandkids.

    Just like Texas in 1880.

    Used to enjoy the snow and then having to clean the cars or drive out after the plows came by and closed in what I cleaned out, lost the love for it. Not sure I want to live sweating my tail off all the time so changed for somewhere that someone else does the snow removal except for the cars and I can do that. As we don't seem to get near what we used to, no big deal. If you have someone to help, dig it for you or a tractor, even better. As for those who live with no snow, that is your choice and who knows, maybe one day I'll end up there, but not yet. And tinpan, I am sure that if you are looking to try it sometime, there is probably someone here who will let you come dig some for them just to get a feel for it. If not, time to go swing and find more buried treasure.

    No heater, LOL. But you get enough residual engine heat that it keeps the window clean and all I need is a winter coat.

    Well, I was down in FL for Christmas along with my bro-in-law who lives in Fairbanks, AK. At a party some of the southern guys asked my BIL how could he stand to live in such a cold climate. He replied that as the weather gets colder and colder you just put on more clothes to keep warm, but where it gets really hot one can only get so naked!!

    Used the shovel, then a used snow blower, then got a used ATV with a blade, Ford 5000 tractor with the snowblower, tired of the cold and snow having to spend 3-4hrs cleaning everything up after a snow dumping. So this year I bought a used blade for the truck, the only thing I'm needing now is to upgrade on some snow eating tires. Now its warmth/tunes/comfy 1hr tops to clean it all up. Like a friend said once "Sometimes we just have to take some money off the table"

    There's nothing more serene than going outside late at night during the winter in New England. The stars are amazingly bright, the moon is reflecting off the snow and it's so quiet you'd swear you're the only person left on the face of the earth...

    We call those big aluminum shovels Coal Shovels here in Tennessee. Never shoveled snow, but have moved tons of coal with one of those handheld devices.

    O.k. men, I know that none of you like to shovel snow. So, here is how to turn a dishwasher into a snowthrower-

    First you gotta take away her dishrag and hand her a shovel...

    Whoops! Was that sexist?

    I consider snow a nice break. I spend my summers shoveling 220 degree asphalt on 140 degree parking lots and digging up creek beds when I'm not doing that.

    Snow doesn't compare!

    Peperj, you can keep the nasties. Here we have one type of venomous spider, and they generally aren't too bad, two types of poisonous snakes, one type no one sees anymore, but potentially they are still out there, the timber rattler. Last one seen in my county was at least 20 years ago, it was dead in the road, made the papers. The other, the copperhead, is shy and won't attack unless cornered or provoked, unlike some of your spiders. Biggest danger is probably ground nests of bees if you're allergic and the occasional rabid animal.

    Our winters up here in the far NW are wet, cold, and we'll typically
    get snow 3-4 times per winter. Deepest I can recall is about 3 ft., but
    it's generally less than a foot.

    Most of our half acre is front yard and driveway (rivers in the back).
    Shoveled the whole driveway one time, and I'm not about to do it
    again. I shovel the walkway from the porch to the driveway, and
    the rest can wait for it to warm up and melt off. Biggest problem is
    the giant ice mound left by the snowplow. It blocks my driveway
    right at the edge of the street, and it takes a pick ax to break it up.
