I help one of my friends with his snow removal business so I do a lot of shovelling. Today I went out solo to clear about 4-5cm of snow off of all the driveways he's got contracts for which is seven. Here are pics of one I did. All in all I think it took about 6 minutes as it was light snow and I have learned how to shovel pretty efficiently. I would say it is definitely over 60 ft long but I can measure to be sure next time I do it if the person checking this BB is unsure.

Had enough snow to deal with but not quite enough to get out the snowblower (2" of light stuff).  Shoveled the driveway which is fairly big.

It snowed there!


My driveway is a bit over 50' long, and then I shoveled the sidewalk, front walk, and some of the street, too (the city here can't afford to plow very often).

I didn't manage to take a self-e but I hope this will be enough as it shows the work in progress.  Also, the mailbox is several miles down the road so I focused on the areas where the car goes.

An excessive amount of unseasonably late, wet snow



My trusty shovel.  The snow was fairly shallow when I started, but it kept on snowing.



The starter path



more snow moved. The pile on the side is getting pretty high. The snow appears to be letting up and the sun going down, so I quit for the night. this was a mistake as there was another four inches overnight.



Job done



What's really sad is we had the same again over the next few days.  Since I'm the only one at home that can do this kind of labour, and we were out of hot cocoa, it made for some interesting days.
