I woke up yesterday morning to a snow covered road with little chance of getting out in the Merc or BMW. I disappeared into the garage and emerged a short while later with my newly created 30 inch bladed snow plough. Namely a wooden post with a 30" square piece of wood screwed to it. 30 minutes later I had cleared and gritted our driveway and the 40 yards to the gritted b road we live off. No problem in getting out or back in so worth the effort. The other positive if my elderly neighbours can get out and back too.
