Tips for Winter Snow Clearing
Fall means snow pole time! Waltman is wrapping up driveway sealing and getting ready to put snow poles in the ground, preparing for what we all hope to be a large winter.
Tips for winter snow clearing:
Be kind to your neighbors. Keep your driveway clear of objects to minimize breakdowns. A shovel or piece of firewood that causes damage can range from a 20-minute fix to terminating the machine for the day.
If you have cars in the driveway, move them around during storms. Park on one side of the driveway and then the other. This will allow plowing of the entire driveway and keep it clearer for you.
If you have an obstacle in the driveway that becomes buried by snow, make sure it is marked or staked.
Contact Waltman for any of your Tahoe Donner snow clearing needs. More
