Indeed...plus that time is time that could be spent doing something else.
Small snows I can push with the shovel and be done pretty fast ...with several inches I dont get to push far before I have to sling the snow..With a foot or more the going gets slow ..300 feet of driveway..apron for two car garage..then a turn around area..I am getting to old for it ..about 20 minutes at a time is all I am good for.

Hmm, you shovel fast. What used to take me 30 minutes with the snowblower would have taken me several days with a manual shovel because I just kept looking out the windows and cursing instead of getting busy with the shovel. Now, due to a setback on the health front, I have pay the kid next door to do it. Taught him how to use the blower this year and after a couple of dumps, he got the hang of it, although I DID catch him using a shovel once. Claims the vibration is a bit tiring, and some filling fell out of his teeth.

Work fascinates me.
I can watch somebody work for hours...
