All the talk about Snomagedon got me to thinking about the Yooper Scoopers. I don't know when they were invented, I remember when I was a kid we had a homemade one. It was made from wooden boards with a sheetmetal bottom. When I was in high school we had a store bought one made from galvanized sheetmetal with a handle bent out of conduit.
Last Summer I went to visit my brother, but nobody was home. Then I noticed the Yooper Scooper hanging on the garage wall. I made this for him over 40 years ago and I was surprised to see it was still around. I made the bottom and sides from 1/8th inch aluminum that I riveted together. Brought the bottom and pieces for the handle to my brother and he welded the handle together and attached the handle.
I took a couple of pictures of it because I had my camera with me. I think I wanted to record the fact that it was still around after all these years. It's a little worse for wear, but all in all it has held up pretty well over the years.
I was going to do a link to a company that makes Yooper Scoopers, but if anyone is interested, all they have to do is Google "Yooper Scooper".
