Do you shovel out your driveway or sidewalk?

Who does that - you? dh? kids?

BTW - we got a foot of snow last night so if anyone has never had the experience, I am willing to let you experience shoveling my driveway and sidewalk.

Thanks to Jaidynsmum for my awesome siggy!!!

Dh is away a lot so it's been me and the dc. This year thankfully we have a plow service that comes and does it. Our driveway is about a small city block long plus the top is 2.5 cars wide. This is only our second winter in this house. At the old house I did it and the little ones played in the snow and followed me through the trail I made as I shoveled.

dh clears our yard with the bobcat, the kids shovel by the steps, but that takes all of 2 minutes.

Usually DH. I have done it once (the 2' on Jan 12th) and today Sapphire helped, but they ended up shoveling the entire road when a neighbor got stuck.

I've done it when not pg. The kids try to help but my oldest is only 10 so not much help, usually more work. We got a snow blower last year and I have no idea how to use it. My DH usually waits the allowed 24hrs and if it hasn't melted by then, he'll go out and snow blow. He's nice and will do the whole sidewalk, but for some reason, when our neighbors do theirs, they stop right at our property line.

Last winter I did it with a little help from Keaton because dh was overseas. This winter the job is all on Nina and Keaton. We have a very short driveway and the job is actually not that difficult.

Yesterday we woke up to find it was already done because our neighbor has a snow blower and for some reason was feeling generous and had done us and 6 other neighbors driveways and walkways!

Dh and the kids usually shovel but Dh is really wanting a snow blower so I will probably agree to getting one when we get our refund.
