Hello and good evening Blake,
You have come at the right time to deal with this.
I don't know what to tell you about your landlord but buying an hour of your attorneys time is a must here as one flying rock can break a window with very little effort and one of your neighbors will not be happy duck taping cardboard to a window or coming home to a broken window that you may not be aware of if it happens.
Case in point was me when my absentee landlord neighbor bough the 64 acres behind me and hired a forestry mower mounted on a front end loader and it picked up a small rock and broke a garage window 200 feet from where the logger was mowing in 64 acre pasture.
My absentee neighbor is a ……………………. so I just covered the window with a sheet of plexiglass to seal it up.
You need power and weight so looking at the three largest Toro OXE 2 stage snow blowers with chains is something you need to do as your wife may end up clearing the driveway if you are laid up and electric start and steering brakes are a must for your wife to clear the snow and feed the moat monsters with the END OF DRIVEWAY MONSTER.
But you need to spend time with an attorney as you will be liable for damages if something happens to a car or a window or someone slips on ice SO, PLEASE DO YOUR LEGAL LIABILITY HOMEWORK BEFORE YOU GO ANY FURTHER.
If you can get him to sign a snow removal contract and absolve you of any liability in snow removal in the contract, great, you will be able to buy a Toro 1428 OXE with steering brakes, heated handles, snow chains and the snow cab. Your wife will really like the toro snow cab by the way.
