How often do you use your Snow Blower

Trying to see how often you use your snow blower. I guess I would answer, not as often as I would like.

Lately, it has been 3-5 times a year-way too little. But we had a huge 30 in/76 cm snow on January 23,2016. I didn't have a snowblower then and it took 4 guys and two snowblowers three hours to shovel me out totally.

Depends on how many snowstorms we get, I guess... Somewhere between 6 and 12, usually.

I use them as often as possible, but there's been a tremendous scarcity of snow the past couple years

I checked 3 - 5 times but that's a crapshoot. The average annual snowfall is 26" but that can range from 0" to 36" at once and anything in between.

2 winters ago it was about 25 times.
average winter at least 10 times . maybe more. It has to be over 3-4 inches before I will use it. I shovel it all to street and wait for plow and then clean it up with blower.

had a neighbor complain and i told the chicken to go pound sand. she said "you are not supposed to put snow from your driveway into the street."

god help me

You forgot 25+, I've already surpassed 12+ by a mile. Our storms started in early October.

I guess it depends on the laws/ordinances where you live. Every place I've lived there was a county or state law, some with pretty heavy fines, for shoveling, plowing, or throwing snow from private property to the public street.

ya , there is here too but i don't give a dam.

i'm a criminal. but like I said i push it in the street , wait for the plow to leave a berm and then blow that snow.

instead of twice , do it once.

I hate it when you wait till the plow does it job, you clean the EOD crud, and the plow comes by for no reason and plows you in again 45-60 minutes latter.
