As a lifelong Floridian, I've never experienced the joys (horrors) of a proper winter. I've never awoken to see my yard covered in white fluffy snow, and then spent an entire morning shoveling my driveway so I can get to work. Sounds like a lovely (brutal) way to spend a brisk (freezing) morning.
Ladies and gentlemen, meet Nathaniel Caplinger of Virginia, who has had about enough of this winter nonsense. He's decided to work smarter, not harder. Good ol' Nathaniel ditched the snow shovel and grabbed a flamethrower to clear his driveway last week.
Nathaniel is no dummy either. He researched local laws on purchasing and using a flamethrower, and brushed up on safety procedures before getting started.
THEN HE SHOWED THAT SNOW WHO'S BOSS.
Nathaniel is the hero you didn't know you needed.
Be honest, you're pretending this is ridiculous, but in reality, you're jealous that you didn't think of it first. It's ok, your secret is safe with me.
A tiny part of me wants to live in a place where it snows so I can do this and see the looks on my neighbors' faces.
CARRY ON, NATHANIEL!
