Total Sq. Ft. of area's Snowblown

This year because of my injuries my wife has taken on the task of snow blowing, she has done it before and likes to be out in the winter and says its good exercise for her.
She laid out how and what she wanted to be cleared, including runs to the barns and even the trail for walking the dog, a path to the wood stove building, not to mention the main driveway and parking area. And as well a trail for moving wood to the stove building.

The blower is a 3 yr old Ariens 28 Deluxe w/ 291cc. Today I measured out the sq. ft of the cleared area that is presently being done and it comes in at 16430 sq ft. per snowfall.

Lucky to have such a dependable helper while you are on the mend. Hopefully she will share her new toy when you are ready!

Due to my rotator cuff surgery on Nov 15 and the fact I would be in a sling for 8 weeks my wife would need to do our snow blowing and shoveling this winter, lucky for her there was only one day Jan 1st that needed snow removal and I just went and got three of our grandsons to help me.
I've been out of my sling for two weeks now and the last two days I've been using the snowblower and their calling for up to 6" more by tomorrow night.

It does add up fast if you have that sort of property. I was at about 15,000 SF with paths, outbuildings and such. Things have evolved to where a few areas really aren't worth spending time on so I'm closer to 12,000 so far. Run time is 1:15 to 3:15 depending on the storm. Given a choice I do it all at once after the storm.

Yea she has been out this morning since 8:30 we had a winter weather advisory last night for possible system and lake effect snow.

Got 10" inches last night. Glad it wasn't a STORM!!

Total area for me that has to be cleared is just over 2600 sq ft (driveway plus sidewalk). Depending on how much snow we get I'll sometimes end up doing a bit of extra (making a spot to put the garbage cans out, clearing a path through the yard for the dog if the snow is more than about 18" deep, etc.)
