How long did it take to shovel

15 posts in this topic

Your driveway.

I'm currently looking at about 8" in my drive. Going on an hour and a half. Just did the middle part.

So, how long did it take you guys?

Seriously man...    a snow blower will cost you about $400 min, and quality just increases with price.

 

A quad with a a blade is the best in a suburb area.

 

Or you could own a Kabota B like me ...  and just destroy the snow.

 

Or. put a blade on your truck and drag the drive...   takes all of 15 seconds.  

 

....  or pay someone....       to hell with a shovel in the winter.

Just bought the house in Nov. winters had been so mild lately I didn't even think about buying a blower. Prob pony up and get a blade when I buy a new mower.

Only 8? Bloomington was hit hard around 11-12+ in. On the bright side there should be some good snowboarding at Perfect North and Paoli Peaks!

I spent about an hour to hour and a half for 100 foot drive.  Did it twice so didn't have full depth to work with.  Maybe 6-7 inches total here.   I stopped at Lowes on Monday,  bought an small electric blower made by WORX,  already had enough extension cords.  Blower was about $240 with tax,  actually did a great job.   Getting too damn old for shoveling.  Takes up less space for storage as we don't seem to need a whole lot of times.   Don't need to worry about gas can being empty,  just hope the power stays on.

I don't know.  We shoveled three times yesterday.  Didn't want it to get too deep.

I didn't mind.  Felt good to be outside and exercising

My husband shoveled when I was at work, so don't know how long it took. We got 5 inches here in Ft. Wayne, the snow wasn't real bad but the roads were treacherous and we had strong winds.

I shoveled tracks for the truck (Did not really need to....but did anyway......)

 

I was checking email and my new neighbor rang the doorbell.  He has a MONSTER snowblower.....was done in 15 minutes and the mailbox too.  I was thankful because we have a steep driveway.....and it was 'falling down' slick.

 

Thanks to Bob....all I put down was some salt....Can you say "Thank you Sir?  A Kroger gift certificate is coming to a pocket near you?"  :):thmup:  :thanks: !!!!!!!!!

Here is Sunny but Cold (ha ha yeah right) CA I don't get snow.  I have to drive to the mountains, it doesn't come to me:(  I miss indiana winters.  I know you all think i'm crazy but the last time I lived in a state where it snowed was over 10yrs ago.

 

I could see how it would get old.  When I used to live in IN, I lived down a hill so when it got really bad we had to  park on top the hill and have to walk up the hill in the morning just to get to the cars.  I lived about 1/4 of a mile away from the road.  so it wasn't fun with anything more than 2 or 3 inches. . . .

    • That is why it is good to put your eggs in other baskets too, like March Madness, and even a bit of Netflix.   I never caught up to Breaking Bad, so I am catching up now.  
    • I just read that Fabian tore a pec muscle during his proday and had surgery.  One analyst suggests the surgery may drop Moreau into the 3rd round.
    • Your Welcome  Aniston is a total hottie BTW
    •   Right. But those same pro scouts drafted Locker, Gabbert, Ponder, Leinart, etc. QB is just a different animal...the position makes teams do silly things. That draft class was abysmal at QB...so it was anybody's guess how those QBs were rated. And even though that was argubaly the worst QB class in a long time, some pro scout still signed off on drafting one in round 1.   I agree that Ballard has his own big board...and it probably looks a bit different than anything we have seen. I honestly don't know what to expect. But given the clear needs on the roster, it does seem to align with the deeper positions in the draft.
    • The reason there isn't more CBs in the mocks is because it is so deep at the position.
      There is a steep drop off at nearly every other position but CB, TE and S.
      The difference between a 1st round edge rusher and a 2nd rd is miles apart, but with CB this year we can get a guy in the 2nd or possibly even the 3rd rd who can perform equal too or even better than a CB drafted in the 1st.

      I think we will forever regret not taking RB McCaffrey. RB might not be the biggest need, but we can definitely use one and we can still use a receiver, and a return man. Bite the bullet and sign Hankins and Revis. With these 3 the only thing we are missing is another edge rusher, inside LB and maybe an Olineman, but those 2 things are desperately needed.

      Heck, really bite the bullet and sign not only Hankins and Revis, but Zach Brown as well. Give Hankins a 1 year deal like Poe, Revis a 2 year front loaded deal and Brown a multiple year deal for an average of about $5 million. Our defense would be stout with these 3 additions and they won't break the bank and we won't have to rely on nailing every draft pick.

      I don't see anyone projecting McCaffrey going to the Colts, yet I hear some experts putting McCaffrey above Fournette. He is from Stanford so you know the kid is smart and he excels at everything, plus who was the last good white boy running back n the NFL? Peyton Hillis? Madden curse got him and he wasn't half as versatile as McCaffrey who can not only receive like a receiver(top 5 WR as well as top 3 RB) but he can also return the ball. We have like 3 or 4 guys that take turns as the returner, McCaffrey allows us to cut all those guys.
