My battery operated Black and Decker does a decent job. However, you have
to be creative because if you step on the snow, it isn't blowing anywhere.

As others have said, doesn't work too well on wet or deep snow, but if
it is just 2-3 inches and fluffy, works great, and I stay clean, dry,
and non-sweaty.


I'm sure your co-workers appreciate your cleanth and dryness even if
your neighbors don't.

If there's so little snow, and it's so light you could move it with a
leaf blower, you'd be a lot better off with a broom or, dare I say it, a
shovel.


Actually Bert the blower works really well on dry snow. I discovered
that when blowing the sand out of my garage one winter and saw how it
completely removed the snow outside the door. I'd not use it on the
whole driveway but it works great for small areas.
