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. . . .

    • Barring some camp breakout story, I don't see how this is wrong. The only thing is they might cut Hunt and keep McGill as a 3rd down DT, but that might be a bit too light on the DE's
    • Yeah, it's pretty obvious that INDY's picks usually occurred around commercial breaks, which meant that our selections were rarely even discussed. Mike went a little bananas on his Philly love too. I know he lives there, but everything was Philly this & Philly that. He did slam that MSNBC Business reporter who massacred their fly eagle fly anthem though in his own way that I found amusing.    Look, I still love Mike as a draft analyst & I know that INDY will never get the love like Pittsburgh, Baltimore, & the City of Brotherly Love will from Mayock & it's okay to me. I know my favorite teams to watch: INDY, NY Giants, NE, Denver; GB; & New Orleans because Sean Payton is so innovative on offense.    Can I ask a question? Is it wrong of me for Make A Wish Foundation recipients to think a little bigger after surviving cancer? If it's what you really want--To introduce a draft pick cool. I just would aim higher or bigger I guess. You know maybe meet a famous band or take in a show with back stage passes. To each their own, I guess. Reading a name off a card as your dying wish or miraculous recovery wish feels like small potatoes to me. 
    • Why do people keep saying this? Walker runs 4.63. Hes not a two down LB. Hes on the field a 3 downs.
    • Here is a podcast from Sports Illustrated that features Zach Banner:     And here's Banner on The Herd:     Seems like a smart young man with personality. That's good after we lost the only guy with personality on our roster this off-season.
    •   Here's my depth chart of the current roster, including my prediction of my final 53. Assuming no major FA signings or trades, here's what I see.   IMO Parry is def gone with the draft of Glover Stewart. We didn't draft someone in the 4th round to let it go to the practice squad.   Of our 9 DLs, 2 are gone for sure making a total of 7. Amongst the 2 to be cut will likely be the following:
        McGill - $0 dead cap Parry - 110K dead cap Woods - 250K dead cap Hunt - 500K dead cap   At OLB, Maggitt will def be gone before Mingo is; he only has a $4000 dead cap (NOT A TYPO) while Mingo will stay simply because he was a former 1st rounder and we'll still hoping he pulls a Jerry Hughes after the latter went to Buffalo.
