I just came in from over 5 hours of snow moving. We had about 5" last night. I have been plowing with a 1973 Ford 2000 diesel with a FEL. I have over 500' of driveway and have places where I pile it up about 10' high. I have about 24" on the ground so the piles are big. I had to push the piles back to make room for the next storm.
It is not a real problem for me but, there are plenty of people in towns and cities that don't have room to put the snow. I feel sorry for the ones with sidewalks. They have to clear the sidewalk within 24 hours. They cannot throw the snow into the street. Then the town will send a plow truck around again and push snow from the street onto the sidewalk again. I've seen this too many times.
I worked on shovelling snow off my roof Friday, Saturday, and today. The roof is steep. I work from a ladder and only clear what I can reach. I can't do it for long because it kills my arms. I'm afraid to use a roof rake because of the damage it can do to the shingles The areas that I had cleared on the south roof melted off fast today. I failed to put in the gutter heater last fall so I have to chip out the gutters too.
One good thing is that snow is known as poor mans fertilizer. Given a choice I'd rather plow snow than have too much hot weather. Good Luck, Rick
