Man Modifies Wheelchair to Complete Our Least Favorite Winter Chore


Now that snow shoveling and plowing are necessary chores in some parts of the U.S., Tim Taylor, a 30-year-old from Pennsylvania, found a creative way to get the job done. He custom-built a plow on his motorized wheelchair.

Living here we get quite a bit of snow. I recently got a 4×4 wheelchair and was inspired to build a plow for it after seeing a YouTube video where an older gentleman had done something similar,” Taylor told Huffington Post.

Taylor was an 18-year-old electrical apprentice when a car accident in 2003 left him paralyzed, killing his girlfriend at the time and her sister, according to Huffington Post.

I still have a lifetime of goals,” Taylor said. “I just didn’t want to be a bump on the log.”

Watch the video Taylor posted of his custom-built plow:

When My Daughter With Selective Mutism Brought Her Classroom Assistant to Tears

Like every mum, I was terrified when my baby started full-time school. Even as I dressed her in her shirt and tie, I wondered yet again if mainstream was going to be the right place for her. She left that day still unable to dress herself and not yet potty-trained. She has autism and selective [...]
