I guess I just don't understand how anyone could find snow a difficult thing
to deal with. I will admit that in the distant past I did have to go
through a learning experience and I do live with a driveway that is about
1,600 ft. long and the county hiway is 103 feet below the level of the house
but I've found that a simple inverter generator to take care of the shack, a
15 Kw generac Guardian for the rest of the house, a very large walk-behind
snow blower and a 4 wheel drive Polaris Utility Vehicle with snow plow and
chains along with a substantial web of ice dam melting wires on the roof
eliminates most problems. I start the winter with 16 cords of firewood no
more than 30 ft. from the back door where the wheelbarrow rests. Thus I
find I have plenty of time and energy for mastering this Depiction software
I recently bought.
