Picky! Picky! Picky!

I have my own method for removing snow from the driveway and sidewalks. We do have snow blower, but I do not have enough upper-arm strength to pull that darn cord!

I can handle a snow shovel pretty well, but that takes too long.

I use the big-push-broom method. I just place the end of the broom handle against my abdominal area, grab the broom handle with both hands, and push that snow right off of the driveway and sidewalks. I end up with a nice, little pile of snow at the end of each long push, and I just "broom it" over to the side.

The big-push-broom method of mine works well with heavy snow too. I just go out periodically during the snowfall and push the fallen snow where it needs to be. It takes me 8-minutes to do the entire driveway and the sidewalk this way.

The incredibly thin layer of snow that remains after a broom push should not be on the sidewalks and the driveway according to my husband. Picky! Picky! Picky!

So, he is out there right now with the snow blower, and I am inside drinking coffee and spending some time on Persona Paper. Silly man!

Some people are just too picky for their own good emoticon :grin: Oh well, best to let them do it their way "right" the first time and avoid arguments emoticon :winking:

I like the idea of a broom. I also love snow blowers. I wish I had a small one that I could handle on my own because I would enjoy myself out there!

What a great idea, I have a push broom and could do that, because using a shovel kills my back, but I tihnk your method might just work, as long as I don't allow the snow to pile up .

I am generally quite quick at snow clearance with a shovel
