Ten Ways To Remove Snow
This AI list (#1-#10) swerves into safety issues post-snow. I added a few that were more along the lines I was thinking.
1. Shovel the driveway and walkways
Start by grabbing a sturdy shovel and clearing the snow from your driveway and paths. Remember to lift with your legs to avoid straining your back.\n\n
2. Use a snow blower
If you have a larger area to clear, a snow blower can be a time-saving tool. Make sure to follow the manufacturer's instructions for safe operation.\n\n
3. Spread salt or ice melt
Prevent slippery ice from forming by spreading salt or ice melt on walkways and steps. This will help melt the snow and provide traction.\n\n
4. Clear snow off your car
Before hitting the road, take the time to clear the snow off your car, including the roof, windows, and lights. This ensures visibility and prevents snow from blowing onto other vehicles.\n\n
5. Check your gutters
Remove snow buildup from your gutters to prevent ice dams and water damage to your home. Use a ladder with caution and consider hiring a professional for difficult-to-reach areas.\n\n
6. Protect outdoor plants
Shake off heavy snow from tree branches and shrubs to prevent damage. Consider covering delicate plants with burlap or a protective tarp.\n\n
7. Create clear pathways for pets
Make sure your furry friends have a safe and clear path to walk outside. Use pet-friendly ice melt to prevent paw irritation.\n\n
8. Clear snow from outdoor furniture
Extend the life of your outdoor furniture by clearing snow promptly. Remove cushions and store them in a dry place to prevent mold and mildew.\n\n
9. Inspect and maintain snow removal equipment
Check your shovels, snow blowers, and other tools for any damage or wear. Replace worn-out equipment to ensure efficient snow removal.\n\n
10. Stay informed about weather conditions
Keep an eye on weather forecasts and be prepared for future snowfalls. Stock up on supplies like salt, shovels, and ice melt to stay ahead of the next storm.\n\nBy following these ten steps, you can effectively tackle snow removal and maintain a safe and functional outdoor space during the winter months. Remember to take breaks as needed and stay warm while embracing the beauty of a winter wonderland.
Turn it up to ten and melt it away.
12. Community Whiz
Get the crew together with a keg of beer. After a while, you'll all be able to get enough of a group stream to wash it all away. Causing another problem, but that's another list.
13. Pay Someone
Find a neighborhood kid (or one in your house) who wants to make a few bucks. And sit inside sipping warm adult beverages.
14. Wait Until Spring
Cheap and easy unless you really wanted to get out of the house and go somewhere. Or have visitors.
