Here in Georgia we get a couple inches of snow every other year or so, and everyone freaks out, and then it melts and life goes on. This doesn’t mean I don’t remember what life is like in more wintery climates, though, and you have my full sympathy if you live somewhere where snow insists on falling all winter long.
If you’re still grappling with the white stuff, check out today’s Woot deal—it’s a Toro electric snowblower. Now, if you have a large area to clear, you’re probably going to prefer a gasoline model, but electricity is cleaner if you can deal with the extension cord and aren’t clearing a whole acre or anything. Woot’s price is $130 plus $5 shipping; a quick peek at it on Amazon reveals their price is $200, and the reviews are largely favorable. Seems like a no-brainer to me.
Then again, you could just move somewhere warmer. That totally worked for me.
