This is probably the stupidest question next to what is snow, but how do you plow? Like procedures. I'm contemplating buying a plow, and I think knowing this would be a good idea.

I found some basics on Chuck's web site. I think he also has a book of Snowplowing he'd sell. You might also do a "search" for "snowplow".

Come on out to Chicago, I'll teach you how. I'm not a big time snow company, but I have 25 years experiance at plowing snow and I'll give you free lessons. Can you be here by 6 AM Saturday morning for your first lesson? We have never had this many snow storms in a week in December. I have plowed all the driveways 5 times and some 6 times due to drifting, in the past 7 days. We could have our yearly average snow fall in this month. With the next 3 storms added to what we have now, it could top our yearly snow fall and December is only half gone.

SIMA has a video for begining plowers. Basic and informative. Well done and professional. It probably would be very useful for you, and a worthwhile investment.
