Snowscoop Headed South


I’m always saying in the chat room, when the old permafrost ranch sells, I’m going to tie this snow scoop onto the front of the pickup truck.  Then we are going to start driving south.  I’ll drive south until someone will ask me what the heck is that on your truck.  Then and then only will I know that I’ve driven far enough south to stop.

    That’s a good theory about when to remove it, Bob!

    And once you’ve stopped, you’ll have put *almost* as many miles on it as you did in Alaska. 😉

    Then, when you’re far enough South, you can turn it into a planter.

    Now that’s a serious winter implement. Does it work really well? Would love to have one! I like your idea of strapping it to the truck.

    We used to have a scoop like that, and yes, they do work very well. Much less work than regular shovelling. They’re really only useful when you have *lots* of snow though.

    I have been playing “Catch-Up” reading all the older blog postings, most especially the ones during the extreme cold weather. This winter here in south Central Virginia, we had perhaps a week of – degree temperatures at night…not during the day, but night. I have a high -low thermometer and coldest I recorded was -8 F.

    As I read the postings, I can only imagine having to deal with -30’sF on a 24/7 basis. This has been a good eye opener for me.

    And please know your efforts are appreciated, at least by this Virginian. Its easy to wonder…why am I doing this, no one cares…but trust me, it means lots. The squirrels have become family already….
