Wovel-Snowblower Face-off

Our snowstorm only dropped about 6 inches of snow - although it's hard to tell exactly because it blows and drifts to such varying depths.
Rog and I had a Wovel-Snowblower competition in the driveway and parking area, and I hate to admit, the snowblower won(but only by a small margin). Each technology has its pros and cons: the snowblower does better on our very long stretch of driveway because it is fenced on both sides with hardly any room to pile the snow. And it leaves such perfect, tidy edges.The wovel is much more maneuverable near the house, doesn't blow snow back in your face and is quiet so it doesn't wake up the daughter who is still lazily still sleeping at 6 a.m. In a city setting, facing off with a smaller snowblower, I think the wovel would have the advantage.
The snowstorm has ended but it was still very gray and cold out today and I wasn't inspired to take photos, so I will post a few I took last weekend when it was sunny and warm enough that icicles formed along the roof of the barn.
