Oh, they'll need some serious equipment, not shovels..

Urban areas like that have no place to put the snow, almost all of it has to be hauled out. very time and labor intensive.

I'm sure the whiney massholes will expect it to be done by monday's rush hour...

The calendar says it's winter. It snows in the winter in the North East. Deal with it.

Yeah, but it's FUN!

Btw, it's supposed to rain this afternoon and the foot of snow we finally got will likely be gone by morning.

i've tried the napalm ping pong balls our local Forest Service people use for controlled burns to clear an area for a brush pile fire...
