Among the very first and last things I will hoard gas for is my snow blower.  My driveway isn’t near 200′ long, but we live in a snowbelt and I have had to shovel multiple feet deep on occasion.  God bless labor saving devices.

Looking forward to your article.

I have one of these Ergo shovels – makes shoveling my 60 foot driveway a chore. Worked well a couple of winters ago, until we started measuring snowstorms by the foot(yard?) and I ran out of room to push it.

I have a son.  I don’t know what kind of shovel he uses.

I have one similar to this that works pretty well:

I’ll have to check out the one you linked.

My son’s at college.  That certainly slows the shovelling as well as cutting, splitting and stacking firewood.  He spends a lot of time building muscles, the least I can do is put them to use.angel

Edit: I don’t know how to get rid of the annoying sign.

    We still got no gasoline in Westchester

I have lived for almost 2 weeks on one tank of gasoline. I am now officially ready for peak oil (in that regard,anyway). Even NYC is on odd/even rationing now:

I am so lucky to have electricity (thanks to nuclear and coal and pure LUCK) unlike many of my neighbors. I just stay home at night, and take the train to work, and live off of my stockpiled food.  I must admit it is annoying being unable to fill up the tank without waiting an hour or three.

Still, compared to many of my neighbors I am one lucky person.
