Re: Fwd: answer about ice chopping tool

yeah, that's what I have. I have a curved one too, but the flat one is a better tool. ----- Original Message ----- From: "Pam Evans" <gardenqueen@gmail.com>

Here's Dad's answer on the ice chopper.  It has a flat bottom, not curved
like the edging tools I've seen.  Figures he still has the one I remember
using as a kid.

I always referred to it as a "ICE SCRAPER"  That's what its used for.  I
would imagine Lowe's or Home Depot ot True Value Hardware Stores would carry them. You can also use them for edgeing around sidewalks. I still have the
one we had at Lockhart St. and use it occasionly when cutting a fine edge
between grass and stone walkway.  Hope this helps.   Dad

One of the gals on my gardenchat list is trying to figure out how to get
thick ice off her sidewalks & driveway. (she's in IL they usually get snow not ice). I remember some tool you had like a long handled hoe but the neck
was straight and not bent and it made a dandy ice chopper.  But I can't
remember what it was called. Do you remember? The woman in Atlanta wants
to know too, they get a lot of ice there apparently.
