In the midwest, snow removal is an inevitable routine in the winter months. It’s tempting to stay cozy and warm indoors and hire someone to do the hard work, or just wait for a break in the weather to melt it away naturally. But if clearing snow and ice is part of your winter reality, we have what you need to get it done (and have some fun too)!
