I wish I could post pictures as I have seen some neat snow blowing pictures. Maybe since Scott Cross got home from sunny FL he will post some snow pictures, I have a 36" snow blower for my Originals and have never put it on. My Cubs get locked in all winter as the doors on my shed freeze shut!

If you can work on iron you can work on wood. If the ground freezes an heaves you have two choices remove some of the ground under the doors or cut some off the doors. It would be best if you cut it from the bottom. If it is paved under the doors you can only use option 2. This works for rolling doors and swinging doors.
If you have overhead doors you must reset the rails oradjust the locking bars on the older types where the door is wooden. On the newer types of glass or steel doors you move the latchesdown enough that the doors don't jam.
A snow blower and he cant use it the doors freeze shut. What is wrong with me that I can't understand this simple thing ???????????????????????????????
Then again I just a poor city boy.

Y'all are living to fancy. I wish I had a shed with doors to worry about.

I don't want to dig a ditch there as the water can't drain and would lay there and really freeze the doors shut(these are swing open doors and I don't want to mess up the bottom of the doors as the snow will pile up and can't open the doors). I have put my snow plow on and put it in the other shed but I live next door to the boro snow plow operator and he usually plows my alley before I get to it anyway. I am going to keep the Original I need to change the motor on in the shed I can open so I can do a heart & lung transplant on some nice days. The other problem I have is my workshop only has a 30" door so I can't get any cubs in the heated area. I am going to work on my CI deck for my 73 on bad days.

Yes I have seen sleet and hail and one winter while working at a microwave tower near Paxton Lodge in Alaska 980 inches of snow. I keep a shovel and pick in the house and in the garage. Some years up state I just dig a hole off the road for the pickup and walk in using a tobogan for supplies. But when I am ready to clear the drive the doors open.
He held back the fact that his friend clears for him. Also if I cant dig because of drainage I would jack up the garage, shed or barn. It is not hard. If a poor city boy like me can do it, any one can. I helped my friend Al Cobb in Geneve NY jack up his old loose hay Dairy barn. Al was not milking the but had almost 500 head of beef and 100 horses and ponys. He had it overloaded with bailed hay. We jacked gingerly and put timbers and logs to hold the little we gained and kept working back from one end to the other till we had every thing as good as made sense. We sure used a lot of cribbing.
Every thing is possible if you are detirmined for it fo be. Heck Bevverly took pictures of me sweeping snow off the roof of the 28 by 28 garage that i built last year. I am no kid but 72 is not too old to get your butt in gear. Thank you lord for my good health!
Enough sermon for today.
