Default Let it Snow - I'm Ready...

I run a thrift store in southeast Idaho and just came across this little goody that I thought I would share with you. I call it a Florida Snow Shovel for obvious reasons:

This puppy appears to be very well built and sturdy what with all those bolts and nuts and stuff...:

So, call me crazy, but I figure I am ready for whatever Mother Nature throws at us here in southeast Idaho...

Kelly: Very interesting! Reminds me of the snow shovel or more "snow pusher" I had in Alaska, it had the same U-shaped handle with a BIG plastic flat scoop with a metal front edge that you slide across the driveway. You could move a lot of snow in one pass and you didn't have to strain the back lifting snow. Sure wish I could find one of those down here, it would make clearing the 150 ft driveway much easier.

Kelly We don't get The amount of Snow you guys do however I'd tend to go for a Motorised version in a Bit Bigger Size.

I remember quite a few years ago whilst we were on a Fishing Holiday to Tasmania where they have really good Snowfalls.
We just happened to Park our RV at a friends Hotel he & his wife went to bed & we stayed in The Bar which he left open for us & other Stranded Fishermen to keep warm as we had a beaut Log Fire going as The Roads were all Snowed under & The Snow Ploughs didn't start until Daylight as well as a Snowdrift against The Door.
So The bottom line was we wouldn't have been able to use your Tool as we Couldn't get out.
Also your Pic of The Cars reminds me of our Ski Resorts which I used to visit when I was younger & more agile.
