This is the way to properly shovel snow...

Well, here by Detroit we got about 6-10" finally. Schools are all closed and my brother is having fun shoveling the snow. What, you ask? Having fun shoveling the snow? Is he deranged? Well kinda, I guess.

Who the heck smiles while shoveling snow???

My brother bought it a couple of years ago and restored it for fun and now he uses it around the house. How many other "city boys" have a toy like that?

I just let the neighbor kids shovel mine. They want $5 to do it everytime it snows so it's almost worth it to watch them sweat and strain while I sit in the house.

That is a nice looking Farmall. Dad still has an M model that is in decent shape and runs. We used to drive it around when I was a kid but man that steering wheel would damn near break your arms if you hit a ditch with the tri-cycle front tires.

Cool. My dad used ot have a Farmall A when I was kid that we'd drive around once in a while. Me and my brother were the only two around who got to drive tractors as kids. I must give props to my dad, he's always had some fun and interesting toys that he was more than interested in sharing with us. We've always had some neat "toys" around the house like the tractors, an army Jeep (my brother is in the process of restoring that now), a few fun cars, and lately construction equipment. And no my dad doesn't do any landscaping, construction, etc., he's a college professor. He just thinks tractors and construction equipment is cool. No one ever said he was normal...

Your out of your mind! Powder is easy but wet snow is like shoveling gravel. Grab a shovel and start digging a hole in your backyard, in a hour tell me how you feel.
