Who Shovels at Your Home?

If you live in a snowy climate, chances are that you'll spend a good amount of time each week shoveling your front walk, which is actually a good form of exercise. Most cities also require that residents keep the sidewalks in front of their property free of snow and ice. Do you shovel at your home?

I'm responsible but sometimes, I will hire someone to shovel, like last Monday when it was coming down pretty hard and it was 1* degree out! It was cold and a young guy looking for work shoveled both my porch, walkways, sidewalks + my neighbor's. The City of Denver fines people for not shoveling the sidewalks!

ha! no body does... we just walk through it like the troppers we are! At my house in Chicago, there's about a foot of snow still. Yes, we are lazy.

Depends on how much snow and who's around. Usually it's my brother or father who takes care of it.

We hire a guy with a 4X4 and a plow to do our driveway, @ $20 a push. So far this winter, we have paid out almost $300. We have a 60 X 25 driveway, with a turn around, so the $20 is well worth the expense and time!!

In theory, the landlord shovels. In reality... my husband does about 75% of it, the other two tenants and I get the rest.

Actually a neighbor has been shoveling for me. Everytime I go out to get the shovel my path is cleared up to my car. He says it is to thank me for taking such good care of his cat when he travels, but I think he just likes the exercise.

I'm jealous of anyone who doesn't have snow. Sometimes I hate it. Sometimes I love it; good exercise for the dog and I. Chaco has a blast playing ball in it, while I shovel.

Either my husband or my stepson will take care of it with the snowblower.
