Winter Tips: Snow Removal

Winter Tips: Snow Removal

Winter Tips: Snow Removal

Don’t Be Taken Off-guard, BE PREPARED FOR WINTER!

If you are like us in the Northeast, snow, blizzards, and ice are an unavoidable obstacle in our daily lives between the months of late November and April. But every year, we are reminded how difficult its removal can be, short of buying a snow blower for your walkway or a large decommissioned army tank for your commute to work. Aside from the muscle inducing soreness that comes with the hassle of shoveling, there comes another hardship: damage. So here’s 10 tips that will help you remove those heaps of snow, without inflicting destruction on your property.

  1. Protect Your Plants

Winter Tips: Snow Removal

This is one of those tips that you do before it starts snowing. If you have a flower bed or a garden that you want to avoid looking like a treasure hunt come spring, prior to it snowing, place large metal stakes into the ground, so (unless it’s an absurd amount of snow) you are able to know where to stop digging, without disturbing your plants. If you have large amounts of snow on bigger scrubs in front of your home or along your driveway, experts says “leave it.” If they are loaded with snow, leave them alone, you will tend to do more damage removing snow than if you just didn’t touch them.

2. Be Sure to Use a Snow Melter

Winter Tips: Snow Removal

This is another practice to do before a storm begins. Experts say to use a liquid mix, preferably a Liquid Magnesium Chloride Blend. Use a garden sprayer to apply it to your walkway or driveway prior to the snowfall. This can slowly melt snow up to two inches in accumulations. Wondering how much is enough? Use about one gallon for every 1,000 square feet.

3. Make Sure You Have The Right Shovel

Winter Tips: Snow Removal

We’ve all seen some random shovel or snow pusher on sale at your local “S-Mart” (you know the stores I mean), but keep in mind, just because something is cheap, doesn’t mean it’s a good purchase. “Look for a shovel with a lightweight plastic or aluminum blade coated with a nonstick finish to make loading and unloading a breeze. Avoid a blade so big you’ll be tempted to overload it; an ergonomic, S-shaped shaft will save your back by requiring less bending. Avoid using metal blades on softer materials, such as wooden decking. A pusher—basically a shovel with a C-shaped blade—is handy for clearing lightweight, fluffy snow. ” – via ThisOldHouse.com

4. Don’t Put it Off… It’s Going to Get Worse

Winter Tips: Snow Removal

The right way to shovel, is to shovel and shovel often. EVEN IF IT’S STILL STORMING. The key is to not let the snow to bond with either your properties surface (freezing), also it’s a lot easier to shovel 2 inches 2 or 3 times, than it is to shovel 7 inches, trust me, I know from experience. And don’t leave a layer of snow between the air and the pavement. You want the pavement to show, so the sun can do its natural job and warm it as much as possible, not allowing ice or more snow to form.

5. Be Sure Not To Pile Up The Snow

Winter Tips: Snow Removal

The best thing you can do is avoid having snow near the foundation of your home, SO DON’T HELP IT. It may be out of your way for the time being, but if it’s next to the foundation of your home, that snow can melt, turning it to water, which can easily refreeze. And as we all know from elementary school science class, when water freezes it expands, causing cracks that make your home susceptible to future water damages.

6. Remember: De-Ice Correctly

Winter Tips: Snow Removal

Most people think that just throwing rock salt on it and calling it a day is the way to go after shoveling. Well, though it’s not a terrible plan, rock salt only works when the temperature is above 12 degrees (Fahrenheit). So if it’s less than that, then you’d have better luck putting it on the rim of your margarita. Also, salt can be extremely harsh to plants, scrubs, or grass. ” Two other salts, magnesium chloride and calcium chloride, cost more but are less harsh (though still not great for plants) and work at much lower temps than rock salt (from 20 to 25 degrees below zero F). Still pricier is a nonsalt option called urea. It’s usually used as a fertilizer, and it can be a little tough to find. Wear gloves when spreading any deicer by hand. For large areas, use a handheld spreader or a push spreader, but not a grass spreader (the deicing granules will gunk up its gears). Store deicers off the floor or in a sealed bucket to keep them dry.” – via ThisOldHouse.com

7. Watch Your Step, Avoid Black Ice

Winter Tips: Snow Removal

This may seem like the most obvious advice, but in the throws of battling the snow, it is easy to forget. Be careful on places like your stairs and make sure your sidewalk is clear from black ice, no one likes a lawsuit. Use sand or kitty litter (also a good tip for your tires to gain traction in the slip of the snow, also, in a pitch, if you have no sand or kitty litter in your car and you are stuck somewhere, release your inner MacGyver, and use your car’s floor mat, place it behind your tire and back up on to it, just don’t forget it in the snow). For best sand, use sandbox sand over mason’s sand, as sandbox sand is far courser and will yield the best results. But if you want to avoid lawn destruction, use alfalfa meal, which is a slow acting fertilizer.

8. GET IT OUT OF HERE!

Winter Tips: Snow Removal

Though this isn’t the most viable option for all of us, if you have the means, use a snowblower. There is no better weapon to use against the onslaught of weather, especially if the snow reaches 11 1/2 inches or more.  Use silicone(spray) on the outshoot of the machine, to keep it from sticking and piling up, furniture polish also works wonders on this. After your finished, let it run for another 10-15 minutes so the snowblower can dry itself off. Your back will thank you in the morning.

9. When Shoveling, move in the same Direction

Winter Tips: Snow Removal

When shoveling, nothing takes more abuse than your back. Avoid twisting, and shovel and unload in the same direction. Push it in the same direction you aim to dump it. Also avoid getting plowed in by using this simple trick:

10. Pay Someone Else to Do It

Winter Tips: Snow Removal

Listen, no one wants to shovel snow. If you have the means, hire a kid in the neighborhood to do it, or guilt a relative into doing it. Call in favors, Christmas gifts, Wedding presents, whatever it is you have to do to avoid doing it yourself. If a kid is ambitious enough he’ll ask you before you have to ask them, personally, I know I used to do this as a pre-adolescent youth, totally worth it.

Party Hacks

Now that we have the basics, it’s time to set up the party. Here are some great hints to throw a great party:

Beef and Cheese Tortilla Dip:

Super Bowl Parties 2017

Recipe:

  1. In a large skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain well.
  2. Transfer to a greased 3-qt. slow cooker; stir in the cheese, salsa and garlic powder. Cover and cook on low for 3-4 hours or until heated through. Stir; serve warm with tortilla chips or cubed bread. Yield: 7 cups.

Thai Sweet Potato Nachos:

Super Bowl Parties 2017

Recipe:

  • Preheat oven to 400ºF.
  • Place the sweet potato slices on two baking sheets that have been sprayed with oil—they should be side-by-side, but not overlapping. Spray the tops with additional oil and season with salt and pepper. Bake for 10 minutes, then flip the slices over and bake for about 10 minutes more, until just beginning to crisp. Remove from the oven.
  • While the sweet potatoes are roasting, start the peanut sauce. Whisk together the peanut butter, rice vinegar, tamari, sesame oil, sugar, ginger, garlic, and 2 tablespoons of water in a small bowl. If the sauce is too thick, add more water one tablespoon at a time. (Different brands of peanut butter have different consistencies!) Add red pepper flakes or sriracha to taste, if using.
  • Divide the sweet potato slices onto 4 plates and drizzle them with peanut sauce. Top with the diced pepper, shredded carrot, cilantro, green onions, and roasted peanuts and serve with a squeeze of fresh lime juice.

Classic Buffalo Wings:

Super Bowl Parties 2017

Recipe:

Dredge wings in flour and deep fry until cooked. Toss the wings in a bowl with 6 tablespoons of melted butter, with 1/2 a cup of buffalo wing hot sauce (Frank’s is my personal favorite). Then serve with celery sticks and blue cheese dressing.

Corn On The Cobb in Bulk:

Super Bowl Parties 2017

Recipe:

Easy as pie. Put your chucked corn into a large cooler. Boil water in a tea pot. Once boiled, pour the water into the cooler (it will keep things cold as well as hot). Let sit for 15-20 minutes, then enjoy with salt and/or butter.


Super Bowl Parties 2017


PARTY HACK:

Line your garbage cans with extra garbage bags, so you can pull a full garbage without having to replace the bag.

Freeze Empty Water Bottles and use as Ice Packs to Keep Coolers Cold:

Super Bowl Parties 2017

Super Bowl Bingo:

Sometimes the game can be difficult for kids to appreciate, turn it into a game for them with Super Bowl Bingo. Played the same way as regular bingo, just with a Super Bowl twist. Look at this for an example:

Super Bowl Parties 2017

Give the winner a prize and let them be entertained!

Party Favors:

Make the game more fun with extra jerseys, or even under-eye stickers:

Super Bowl Parties 2017

Super Bowl Box:

Make the game interesting to your guests and have them play the super bowl box game:

STEP 1

Start off with an empty 10 by 10 grid. This will give you 100 Squares for people to choose from.

Super Bowl Parties 2017

STEP 2

Depending on which game you are playing with, simply assign one team to the columns, and one to the rows.

Super Bowl Parties 2017

STEP 3

Now, start recruiting people to join your Football Squares pool by letting them choose which squares they want. If you use our site to Play Football Squares Online, this will be a much easier process since you can simply email everyone the link to your site and let them choose their squares. If you decide to use a Spreadsheet or Printable Sheet, then this proces may take you some time and effort since you have to manually pass along the file or sheet.

Once all the squares have been filled, it is time to assign the numbers to each column and row. By playing online, this is as simple as a click of the button. For those using offline options, randomly assign numbers 0 through 9 to each column, followed by doing the same for each row. Now each square represents a specific score in the game based on the column and row numbers

Super Bowl Parties 2017

STEP 4

Your Football Squares grid is now complete, and you just need to wait til the game is played to determine who will be your winners. A winner will be determined at the end of the 1st quarter, 2nd quarter, 3rd quarter, and Final Game score. The winner is determined by looking at the last number in each teams’ score, and then matching those numbers on the grid and seeing which square intersects those two numbers. An example would be if the Miami Dolphins were playing the New York Giants in the Super Bowl, and the score at halftime was Miami Dolphins 23, and NY Giants 14. The last number for the Dolphins is 3, and the last number for the Giants is 4. The square on the grid that has the Dolphins with a number of 3, and Giants score of 4, would be the winner.
