Oh, and then we gotta THANK our heroic snow plow drivers who got their gubbermint cushy jobs through a network of clannish connections to get their semi retarded, semi inbred, cocksucker of a son of a bitch a job on the snow plow!

Potd great winter rant!

I've just started. It's pretty early in the "season" and I can almost certainly predict there are going to be more examples of this as the Winter rolls around. Expect this thread to run many pages.

Oh yeah. I'm with ya. We got 18 freakin' inches of snow on the ground right now and it's still falling. Snow plows just went through and buried everyone's cars. I was just out shoveling for a couple hours, came in to warm up, and haven't even worked my way to the car yet. Can't wait too long to do that -- tomorrow everyone has to move their cars to -- somewhere -- because the city declared a snow emergency for tomorrow which means get your car off the street so we can plow your parking spaces. Arghhhh!

Used to be there were kids competing to earn money shoveling snow. No more. Even though the schools and most things are closed today, the kids are all inside glued to their screens.

If it was like the slop we had, it's 18 inches of liquid and will freeze to a block of ice. Even my damn truck tires were frozen to the ground this morning and I had to put it in four wheel to bust loose. Good luck on your shoveling, I pace myself and take breaks so it keeps the heart attacks away.

Done with the shoveling. At least this round -- it's still snowing but it seems to be slowing up. We haven't had the ice thing yet and the snow was the kind that was good for packing. (I know this because I threw snowballs for my dog to chase -- it's fun to confuse him like that.) I took breaks in the shoveling as well. One time, one of my neighbors was out and said "How are you?" He was shoveling snow so I thought it was okay to say "I'd be better without the snow." His reply? "Oh, but isn't it beautiful?" I wanted to hit him but I didn't and just muttered "yeah I guess..." He is new in the neighborhood so this might be his first snowfall. I'm going to check with him in January and see if he is still thrilled.

He will probably look like the guy in the Johnson Ville sausage guy Winter is over commercial

What type of snow scoop are you sporting? Mine is a rusty old grain scoop I named "Manual". When anyone asks me what I have for a snow blower, I always tell them I have a Mexican snow blower a "Manual Shoval" model. They just look at me and turn away.

I got two. One is old school, straight handle with the metal scoopy part. That one is good for icier snow. When the snow is heavy and light-ish, I use one that looks like this -- easier for lifting and tossing big piles of the shit.

I don't have -- or want -- a snow blower. One more piece of machinery to drag around, have to maintain, and deal with it breaking in the middle of winter. No thanks! Easier to grab a shovel, get some exercise, and curse. Chuckle

Our snow blower froze, we had to drag it into the garage and put some heat on it. Already broke one shovel. I am done with those plastic shovels, I am going to get a few metal shovels.

Yeah, the metal ones last forever. Good choice, @Lily -- and sorry about your snow blower. Last year, one of my neighbors threw out a metal shovel because the handle broke. I gave it to my landlord, he fixed it and now he uses it. The metal shovels are the best.
