Oh I'm not! I was just curious as to what everyone does! Especially with the first question because I just argued with Tim over it.

I don't shovel. My 13 yr old does. And he does it multiple times. Although tonight it's piling up as fast as he's shovelling. He also does a few of the neighbours as they are older. So tonight after 1 round he's coming in for the night...and well if no school tomorrow then he'll be out there. He likes doing it.

I try to keep up with it! So hate when it happens mostly over night like tonight. Although this way dh will do what little there is right now before he goes to work and then again in the morning when he gets home. Only with him getting home so early he won't use the blower!

I actually enjoy shoveling but considering my current state, I'd just be useless. I send the kids out to shovel

I've already shoveled once, but it's already covered so I'm just going to leave it until it stops.

I tired to put myself in labor that way when I was overdue ...it didnt wok lol All I succeed in was a backache.

I dont shovel, it takes me forever because of my back. Dh does it since he finds it pathetic and funny watching me trying to do i. He will most likely shovel when he gets home from work in the morning and again if it is still going. He likes to do it as it falls

Oh the joys of apt living. There are some perks! lol I sure will miss having maintenance including snow handled for me at no extra charge :)

Growing up we always had a snowblower, but we had a pretty big driveway and my dad used it only when there was a good amount of snow.

He just got another snow-thrower yesterday. He was out there this morning, helping the neighbours too!

*I* don't shovel. BF does LOL.

When he does depends on when it snows and how much. Today we are hoping the neighbour who is "supposed" to do our drive with his tractor will get to it. If he doesn't BF is going to go get his parent's snow blower.

We have a small snowblower. We just have a 4 car driveway and the sidewalk to the house and to the back yard. Took long enough today though. 1.5 hours. We did not do it last night, should have.

I shovel if and when I feel like it... or when I can get out of the house for 10 min without the children killing each other.
