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. . . .

    • Brady to Appeal....
      The Pats have won 4 SB's and been to 6, most think Brady is still one of the Greatest ever regardless of this, some think he is the Greatest. I don't even like the Pats and I still put Brady in my Top 5, his resume as far as winning is better than Peyton's as well. I think he knew what was going on and I think he panicked and his phone destroyed but I have no proof of it but who cares really what I think or any fan in reality. It really boils down to Integrity more than anything with me. I don't like cheaters or liars so that is why some of my posts may come off harsh. If it was Peyton doing this I would say the same thing. I wouldn't rank him as not a Top 5 QB ever but I would think less of him and think he should be punished if he put the Integrity of the game in jeopardy.
    • Let's talk UDFA: Tevaun Smith
      It's not that he didn't go to an elite school, it's that the school he went to prefers the running game and short passing to the TE to taking a lot of shots down field.     The offense he played in was just not designed to take advantage of his talents.  So he didn't put up gaudy stats.
    • Predict the AFC South's finishing records
      Yeah.  Well, the Texans aren't particularly good and haven't been for years, so it's hard to see them winning too many games.
    • Whens the last time a 5 win team had so much hype?
      They may flame out but their QB is clearly legit and they spanked the crap out of the Colts at the end of the season.   Do i think they are SB bound?  No.   But they are certainly a contender in this division.  You can't just look at the Jags on our schedule and pencil in 2 wins anymore.

      When I first saw this thread, I thought I was late to the party, but then I saw that this thread has been going since 2012.   I'm still late to the party, but story of my life.  I joined in 2015, but have been a Colts fan since I was a kid.   My first Colts memory is getting a hat signed by Quentin Coryatt at training camp, and that same year almost going to the SB.   My favorite Colts memory is beating the Pats to get to the SB in 2006.   Favorite Colts:   1. Peyton Manning 2. Marvin Harrison 3. Reggie Wayne 4. Dallas Clark 5. Brandon Stokely   Needless to say, Peyton (#1) and everyone he threw the ball to (#2-5) won me many, many fantasy football games, and are my guys for eternity.   You might assume from my top 5 Colts that I am a "new-age" "fairweather" fan who only likes offense and points.  You are wrong.  I am grateful for the offensive Renaissance in Indy, but Defense is my passion.  My secret top 5 Colts: Bob Sanders, Dwight Freeney, Robert Mathis, Cato June, Gary Brackett.   I want Henry Anderson to help lead a Defensive Renaissance in Indy.  Luck and TY are great, and I hope the OLine is outstanding, but the D is the Key.

      Hey guys,   I have been posting for probably a year or so now.  I reside in Brazil, IN, which is about 20 minutes East of Terre Haute on I-70.  I'm 28 years old and have been a Colts fan since Harbaugh days, but really started following and rooting hard for them after they drafted Manning in 98.  I love our team and my family and I make sure we are ready to rock for every game.  We always have viewing parties at my father-in-laws or my house and are known to holler and scream at the TV!  Hope all is well with all of you, and GO COLTS!
