So we are just finishing the biggest storm that we have had in years. 75+ cm of the white stuff with 100+ km winds. It was quite a blizzard. Plows have not been seen on my road for well over 36 hours. 4 feet right across the road in front of my house. Things will not be back to normal for quite a while. For supper I got the craving for BBQ but our main one is buried so I got out the little camping one and made some shelter to get out of the wind. It worked out great and was simple and delicious. This is about a 9 foot drift. There is a window buried behind it somewhere.

Cute: Built a little shelter was much diff than I was expecting!  I remember snow forts being dug along roads as youth, but now that is not SAFE and they don't like kids doing it anymore. Bummer! Least yours is up by house!  Question on tool hanging.....Just warm them up in use and hold up to snow a second and they stay?  BUT, probly took good long time to dig this out for only a 15 minute or less prep of food!  Guess it could be re-used for awhile at least.

Nice Trent. I was not that inventive. I am still trying to clear some snow. Quite a storm. I have pictures but have not got them on yet. What do you use to clean the driveway. Noel

He didn't have time for the driveway! He was making the igloo to cook in!

I love it!  The roof never melted from the heat of the grill?

My wife says YOU ROCK!  We are having a pitiful little sleet/freezing rain event here.  So much for yesterday's forcast of 5-8 inches! :(

Hi noel. I have always used my Bolens 800 or a walk behind when they would start. I have no garage so they are always exposed to the elements. This year though I got lucky. One of my neighbors went west and asked if I would look after his driveway with his John Deer 7810 farm tractor with 7 foot blower and i could take it home to do my own also. I always loved out playing with my machines but I got to say I'm really enjoying this tractor. Loving the cab especially and the power it has after a storm like this one.

No Ben the roof held up. Not much heat off those portable bbqs.
