'Course ... being in 'Merica now ... he could always solve that problem 
the 'Merican way ... and throw money at it!  ;-)

* Buy a neighbor's child.
* Hire a plowing service.
* Purchase loud gas powered technology ... the bigger the better.

(I lived up in the land where we 'watch out where the huskies go' for 
many years before I bought a snowblower.  I bought it the week my 
company's VP of purchasing walked over to my desk laughing his butt off 
because his buddy at Toshiba had thrown his back out shoveling snow. 
[We Yankees can be mean like that.] While I've never hurt my back 
shoveling snow ... I *have* hurt my back a few times -- it's not fun.)

(Chuckling over the fact that two guys in _Texas_ are the ones offering 
snow shoveling tips! [<pre-apology>Sorry Dave - I can't help it</pre> 
... this reminds me of an old "Can't we all just be friends?" email 
from a guy whose return address was on the 'worlddomination' domain. 
That was just soooo ... <shakes head />])
