    Well that ain't how they do it in Durango, though sadly there hasn't been the snow this year to need it.

    Great idea. Even emptying the wing before the driveway makes a big difference

    That's nice, and so simple just a little thought.

    More on snow boots, AKA snow gates.



    Looks like they might be a little gimmicky. 2:01 MSM news report questioning their effectiveness:




    Searching for the "higate" text on the snow gate sticker yields a manufacturer with many similar products: Hi-Gate – Henke

    A friend of mine in CT gets to re clear his drive way every time the plow comes through He will have his 1/4 mile long all nice and cleared sown to the street. get in his truck to go some where only to find that at the bottom of the steep sloping drive will have a wall of snow to go through after the plow has passed by.
    Never try to tell me it can't be done

    Boohoo! Been shoveling the burm from the plow for 50yrs here in New England. Just a fact of life!
