    whats your preferred method of snow removal?

    I used to have a lawn tractor with 48" snow blower deck, but the mower shit the bed. I bought a craftsman pro-series, but the snow thrower doesn't attach to the new one.... So I had to resort to a snow blade, which is some ghetto shit.

    Beats shoveling tho, and I got a big droveway

    Troy-Bilt snow blower! Then, some shovel work by one of my henchmen to finish the job.

    But so far this year in Jersey, no sign of snow!

    I buy my neighbor's wife eclairs from a pastry shop in Brooklyn. When it snows, she nags her husband until he plows my driveway.

    Edit: and I have a bottle of Johnny Walker Red for when he's done.

    I live in Michigan with Lake effect snow. I gave up on shoveling or blowing snow and now just hire a company to do it for me at $300/ season. Great on back and my obituary won't say dead from a heart attack while shoveling snow.

    I bought a power shovel/snow thrower after getting tired of regular shoveling...

    And then it never snowed here again.

    I'm thinking of shelling out for an air conditioner so the goddamned heat waves stop, by that same logic.

    $300/season sounds like a good deal.

    In the early 70s my older brother bought a WW2 Willys Jeep from surplus and put a plow on the front of it. We used it around the neighborhood and made good money when it snowed heavy. Used to be able to clear a house and driveway in less then 15 min. Many years later he investigated where the Jeep actually had been during WW2 using the serial number and old records and manifest lists. It was in Bastogne during the battle of the bulge and had driven around a one star (brigadier) General...It even has mounts for a .50 cal. machine gun ala the Rat Patrol. About 5 years ago my Brother donated it to a museum in upstate New York.

    My house and property are far too small to justify a snow blower. I used to shovel but stopped in my late 40's, as I was afraid of a coronary. Now either my older kids do it or I hire a couple of neighborhood kids. Age has its advantages.

    1. Get a plow guy

    2. Get a Honda snowblower - best brand out there by a mile

    Daaaaaamn that's a good price. It's $60 for the first pass and $30 each additional pass for each storm here. They do a pass every 3-4 inches.

    Out of curiosity, how long is everyone's driveways? I'm 300 ft set back with a large square area in front of the garage and a portion that loops around in a circle
