Well, we just got at least 5 feet of snow in 3 days. That's more snow than we get all Winter in other years. To remove snow from the roof (1 story Ranch), I used my Roof-Razor (Made by Minnsnowta) and it worked great. http://www.minnsnowta.com/ Only problem was I had difficulty walking thru all the snow on the ground. Next time I will need snow-shoes. Question: Any recommendations as to what or what not to buy. I will pay any price but don't want to waste money on shoes that aren't praticle. Requirements: About 30" long Easy to put on / I saw some in a video with a ratchet for tightening straps (I like that). I stepped in an area with drifting snow and sank to my shoulders. Fortunately I had a long handle ice scrapper and got out after 5 minutes. A big heavy snow-plow came down past my house and got stuck. The driver had to wait for a Bobcat to dig him out. Today I plan on finding the mail-box. Tomorrow I'll dig a path to the front door (temp is expected to be 60 degrees). Rain is expected tonight. The snow on roofs will absorb it and some roofs will start caving in. Again, to be better prepared for the next storm (if it ever comes), I would appreciate snow-shoe recommendations. Not for Hiking or Racing, just walking around the yard.
