When we moved to the Seattle area, we were told that there was rarely ever any snow. We don't even own a regular shovel yet, let alone a snow shovel... SO... when we woke up to a small drift over our front porch we used what was available to get the job done. (If you can't tell from my scratchy drawing --- that is a pampered chef pancake turner)
It is also nice to find a use for those plastic membership cards that seem to only take up space in my wallet. I guess they do have some value.
