Poor Man's Snow Shoes

I came up with this in a moment of desperation. My newly planted trees were so bent with snow I was afraid they would break. However, I don't own snow gear and I didn't want to go truding through the deep snow. These sleds were on the porch and whala! I had snow shoes.

I step on top of them and use the strings to help place them in the snow before I take each step. They work wonderfully! I can stand fully on one while I use the other one to whack the snow off of the trees as well.

The orange one is actually a boogie board I snagged out of my neighbor's garbage, the green a sled that I got at a yard sale for $1. Not a bad price for snow shoes! Just hang on if you come upon a hill!! :)
