    Mods...unsure if general chat is allowed, do apologies in advance.

    Now that we all own snow shovels,I thought I'd let you know that they are great for clearing leaves.

    On the general topic, I was stunned during the first wave of the beast to see how many people spontaneously posessed snow shovels.

    None of yer' cheap crap either. Proper wide-blade snow shovels. The 2 houses to our left, 1 to our right and 1 opposite all had them.

    I meanwhile bought 20kg of rock salt, snow socks, a family pack of cuppa soup and 3 litres of milk - but the shovel was the thing that would have actually been used. :(

    I made my own snow shovel. In 2010.

    Approx 30x50cm sheet of plywood and medium thickness tree stake.

    No, I don't really think they're great for leaves. I prefer rake and yard brush instead. :P

    Grain shovels is what they are normally called. Most farmers would have them.
