I bought a small electric snow shovel, and yesterday provided enough snow to try it out. Seconds after I started finding my extension cords, the neighbour across the road fires up his proper gasoline powered snow blower. “ROAR!” Mine starts up — “bweeeeeee” and its like a mosquito versus a semi. Not 15 seconds into my inaugural push did I successfully tangle up my extension cord into the thing, so its just as well I didn’t have something would have chopped the cord into twenty pieces (and a good thing nobody was around to see that).

Overall, its more like shaving the snow off the sidewalk than it is shoveling it. But its better than all the lifting, so I’ll take it!
