There was about 3" of snow on the driveway from the weekend weather that needed to be removed as we are due for another 1-3" tonight and tomorrow.
Right now there is no wind and temps are in the mid-20s and the sun is bright. So I left the blower in the garage and did a little 'solar shoveling' instead.
Using my big scoop shovel, I merely snowplowed stripes. (I try not to actually lift the snow, just push it around if possible.)
This exposes (or at least leaves very little snow) on the blacktop.
After that, I let the sun do the finishing up. The heat from the exposed strips will melt the remaining snow over the course of the rest of the day. No gasoline, no noise, and no heavy lifting.
There's also some new developments in the basement. CLICK HERE.
