25 years ago, I moved from Wisconsin because I didn't like that much snow. Now I am thinking about moving further south. I don't like the 6" or so that we get.
Don't like snow or cold. In a few more years, I plan on retiring. When I do, I will stock up on all of the parts that I need to keep busy all winter long. I will build a tunnel from the house to the garage so I don't have to go outside when it is cold. Got it fugured out! Anything below 65 deg is too cold for me.

Jeez, it's not cold ALL the time, just for 6 months out of the year. The rest of the time it's either shirt sleeve weather or bathing suit weather. Besides, ya can't go tobogganing without snow. WhEEEEEE!!

|dinger||Got to agree with Willys, I lived right outside of Duluth for my first 25 years, now if I want snow I drive 45 minutes up the mountain, then leave it behind. For the garage floor, get some cardboard, it's free and when it's waterlogged, throw it out and replace it with some more. Brrrr. Dan|

well, well, well....
The day Chuck does the laundry will be the day that I vacuum the garage. However, let it be known that I DO shovel snow, but I won't use the snowblower (whisper...I think it's possessed!).
We definately need some kind of drainage system though, and parking outside is not an option...we're both too lazy to scrape frost off the windshield or brush 6" of snow off the hood. Besides, leaving the SHO outside leaves it prone to vandalism, note the deep scratches in the truck lid and back spoiler that happened last summer. I think Chuck mentioned that in a thread at the time it happened.
And so, the dilemma continues.....

|adtkart||See 4-Jaw..... I knew there was a reason that I kept my garage full all of the time. So no one would park a wet car in there.|

keeping the garage floor dry and clean
A fan to help dry up the melted snow and a broom to sweep up the mess thats left behind. Bakersfield, thats just this side of heaven, isn't it?

Perhaps you guys are right, putting in a drain is going to be necessary for wetting down the floor for painting anyway. The floor itself is nearly perfectly level and I went around this summer and patched all the little nicks and chips in the floor with mortar to make it perfectly smooth. A couple of hours with a diamond saw, some tubing and some mortar mix and I could be in business. Maybe a long trough that runs the width of the garage with a stainless rectangular cross section grille that fits flush with the floor thats strong enough to take a load. Make it removable with a polished top edge ( ) and I could even brag to friends.
Just what I needed...another project.
For now I will use a wet-dry vac as Hellza mentioned, the squeegee method leaves a little to be desired since the crud falling off the car is full of sand and gravel and a nice new wiper blade lasts all of three months pushing all the junk out the door. Big problem is, I always tell the wife that vacuuming is a woman's job. I wonder if she would mind doing the garage the same time she does the livingroom.
Thanks guys for all the tips. I may be living out there when she reads this.

My floors have drains, but I use a big push squeegee, works good
and lets me paint with a wet floor.
