Already looking towards winter, making removing snow easier.
Figure I'm going to vacuum the snow off the walk & drive. What size
canister would you recommend? Think a 16 gallon would do it without

(which most snowfalls the last couple of winters around here have been),
I can blow the drive and front walk quicker than I can shovel it, and it
is a lot easier on my back. Even for deep snowfalls where I have to fire
up the snow thrower, I use the blower to clear the thin patch under the
overhang up near the garage door, to get room to turn the snow thrower
around. I only have to break out the shovel for the wet stuff. And
because I was stupid and bought a house with a sloping driveway, I have
to clear it even for a 2" snowfall, otherwise I'm driving uphill on
stripes of ice when I get home. If it snows while I am not home, I have
to park in street until I can clear it- cost me a transmission learning
As to vehicles- I park them inside at night, which by itself makes
owning a house seem worthwhile. I only have to scrape cars if it snows
