I am not the only one

I always thought I was the only one who shovels the last remaining spring snow mounds onto the driveway so they will melt faster. Yesterday I saw a guy doing the smae thing!

How many of you do this?

Happy Easter All!

ME. I had huge mounds and lucky for me, I can spread it with snowblower on my front lawn. I did that a week ago and what I spread out is all gone.

I do the same. But I just try to keep my piles built up along the ditch banks. So when it's good and then a push and then it's in there and a fee less stones to rake out of the yard.

Came home one day last week and my wife was out doing it. Says she is tired of the snow and wants it gone. I had blown a 7 foot tall bank on one side of the driveway, it is now about 3 1/2 feet.

I drive my truck or tractor around the yard where there is snow. It helps it melt a lot faster. I have gravel drives and can't do much until the frost has left.

Some of my neighbors spread it into the street for it to melt.

I look at them and laugh because my untouched snowbanks are gone the next day.

Work smarter, not harder.:D:D

I moved my snowbanks to the vacant area across the street the other day. The neighborhood kids were running out of piles to play in, and I needed an excuse to run the FEL...otherwise, they melt where they are, but I have seen folks chucking it into the street.

You are going to need a little help from the sun to get rid of that. Good luck with the Bees.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
