People have different ways to remove snow from their driveways. However, a Virginia man decided to take his strategy to a whole other level.
Nathanael Caplinger decided the best way to fight the elements is with the elements. Instead of using the traditional tool, a shovel, he chose to use a flamethrower instead.
Caplinger read about the idea in a local magazine and decided to try it out himself.
Caplinger warns others to take precautions before attempting to remove snow using the flamethrower strategy.
“Make sure there are no flammables nearby,” he said. “Make sure it’s only what you want to burn, make sure afterward hang out for about a half hour, make sure nothing reignites.”
Local authorities ask to be notified before anyone else trying this approach.
