hahaha the first thing we did literally within minutes of knowing we were moving list the snowblower on Craigslist sold in 2 days

We do use the snow shovel, to help pick up piles of leaves in the fall one rakes into the pile the other uses the shovel to move the leaves into the container. Also used it for spreading mulch, and a few other items.

Before I moved down here, I asked a cab driver that drove me to my job interview if I would need a snow blower. She didn't know what it was. She thought I might be able to use it for leaves ;-/

I've heard of them. Never seen one though. My preference is to avoid the North in the winter.

If it snows, I just wait on it to melt. It doesn't take long.

Salt is good for driveways, especially those that don't get direct sunlight. We've used a shovel a few times since we moved down here 6 years ago. But that is all you need.

Salt is not good for concrete driveways, luckily in this area there is not much need for it.

I have one that we brought from Kansas. I used it several times here (we actually had some measurable snow a few times since 2002) -- then I took it to our mountain house, where, yes, it does get used.

No one wanted to pay me much at all for it when we were in Kansas (everyone has one back there! And mine was only used one winter b/f we moved). That is why I brought it here -- I knew I could use it in the mountains. If you can get a decent price - just sell it - you won't miss it.

Sell it of course! Easiest thing we sold when we moved 4 years ago.

Keep it if it doesn't cost much to transport. You will be the most popular person in Waxhaw when we do get snow. It will be a conversation starter. I don't think I have ever seen one except on TV.
