For the homeowners who live in snow country, what are you all doing for snow removal? My driveway is definitely too big to shovel (unless we're only dealing with an inch or two of snow), but I'm having a hard time justifying the cost of a snowblower thats only going to get used 3 or 4 months out of the year. I have a neighbor (retired farmer in his 70s) who's mentioned that he'd be willing to plow my driveway out with his tractor but I don't know how much I can depend on him (e.g. if he gets sick, or if I have to leave for work before he's had a chance to plow). He's only asking for gas money and for what a snowblower would set me back, I could have gas money to last into the next decade. Who's got a snowblower and how much do you actually end up using it?
