Snow Removal – Alternate Tools comparison! VIDEO

So, snow days. We all wish we had a nice snow blower, but alas, we don’t always have them (…like never). So we all suck it up and shovel away.

I’ve heard from somewhere that lawn mowers actually work, and leaf blowers aren’t bad either. Since I had newly acquired a leaf blower, and I of course have a lawn mower, so I had to test these theories out.

For those of you who were thinking of trying them out, don’t bother, just watch this short video, and you’ll know how they do… 🙂

 

 

Ice Sledding and Ice fishing! Video

This winter’s been really cold. Some lakes and rivers are completely frozen over, and what does that mean??

Ice sledding and Ice fishing of course 🙂

Here’s what happened:

Oh and some obligatory warning for ice sledding is included (for obvious reasons) ^^

I searched for good iced-out lakes in the above process, and found out there’s a pretty decent(?) ice fishing scene in the area. So a couple of weeks later, I went in search of that ice fishing scene:

Winter’s not over yet, and I have a feeling there’s more coming!
