    Why fight the snow? Forget the heated driveway; install a gondola instead.

    We do seem to have plenty of hot air around.

    maybe there are some hot springs a couple 1000ft down they can tap into


    just think if the road was like your driveway then they can keep the top open all year

    Actually the Conway Granite is rather high in natural radioactivity. As susch it is a little "warm" on its own. In the late 70's it was looked at as a potentially mineable source for uranium.

    MW is made up of gneiss, quartzite and mica-schist. You'll have to look somewhere else for Conway Granite.

    Conway would be a good start. The Conway variety of granite is pinkish, which I gather inspired the name "Redstone", which is part of Conway.

    It was the old Redstone Quarry that I was referring to, my reference was to a geothermal test bore that was drilled there in the late 70's. It did not pan out all that well, but in theory that formation could be used for energy production. While large scale energy production may not be feasible now, I thought a simple snow removal project could be workable.

    Thanks Kevin, Bill gave me the height, and now you've given me the ingredients needed for the mountain I'm building in Florida.
