I don't have to shovel here; it's taken care of by the apartment complex. However, when I did have to clear snow I've always used a shovel.

None! Not only does it not snow often here, but our landlords live upstairs and that chore belongs to them.

Shovel. Already shovelled my way through December and half of November. The snow has melted now, and I don't want anymore. I'm so ready for Spring.

usually none of the above since it rarely snows in Ga, but this week have had to use a shovel, but it's a regular shovel and not necessarily a snow shovel.

My husband bought a used snow blower last year. We've not had to use it yet, my son comes over and borrows it to make money doing peoples driveways and he does ours for letting him use it. Pretty good deal.

We rarely get snow and when we do nothing moves. It also melts in a couple of days. Yahoo!!!

We did live in area that got snow and we hired someone with a snowplow to clear the driveway and the DOT cleared the roads.

What a timely question,I spent a couple of hours yesterday helping DH scraping ice with a garden tool. Scooping up the snow/ice mixture with a snow shovel and broom to clear the driveway and walkway. We were held hostage by the storm that danced across the South. I loved it,got my cardio in too.

Currently living here in NC even though we got snow we did NOT use any of the above. Because the area is not equipped to deal with snow on the roads I stay home. If we did get dumped, I would use whatever shovel I have handy since I've yet to see a snow shovel for sale in any of our stores! emoticon

I grew up in Massachusetts and then some time in New Hampshire- it was basic labor during snow storms just me and the shovel and all that lifting and heavy breathing.

None of them now....but, when I lived in New York and Colorado, I used a shovel. I loved the cold and snow, and enjoyed the workout. I'd be huffing and puffing after a couple of feet now, though.

I live in San Antonio Tx. We probably should get more snow than once every 20 years or more, but I believe we have a dome over us. So, we get the cold and sometimes ice, but never snow.

If I lived where it snowed I'd want to use a snow plow, but I'd have to use a shovel cause I don't drive.
