Drove by the hardware store last night on my way home. Apparently the entire town lost their shovels between the last snow storm and this one. Maybe people think shovels are a one time use item.
I was one of the people at Home Depot that evening getting a snow shovel.
I moved to this location last July. When I moved, I gave away all my snow shovels because the place I'm in now is a condo and they include shoveling of all walkways (right up to your front door and even your patio), sidewalks, driveways, the parking lots and the roads inside the complex, in the condo fee.
In my old place, I had a pretty big lot and had LOTS of driveway, sidewalk and walkway to clear. Not to mention the huge deck in the back of the house. When I moved, there was a lot of stuff I didn't take with me, gave away, threw away, donated. It gave me ESPECIAL joy to give away the snow shovels and smugly tell people, "I'LL NEVER HAVE TO SHOVEL AGAIN! HAHA! Don't you wish you were me?"
But with all these huge snowstorms we're getting this year, I realized maybe it would be good to have a shovel on hand just in case, e.g. to have in the car, etc. etc.
Oh, and $25 for the cheapest shovel at Home Depot! What a racket.
last snowstorm was heavy snow. i bet those crappy home depot shovels snapped when people were 70% into clearing their driveways!
They'll last if used properly and not abused. I'm going on year 10 with one of my home depot shovels. I bought 2 more last year - one is a backup, and the other is all plastic (doesn't have the metal edge) for shoveling the deck.
You would think we lived in Montana with the nearest grocery store 50 miles away?
Snow days must be big French toast days with all the bread, milk & eggs in the carts
