Front "Plow" on a bike?

So, its snowing here in Milwaukee... 6+" when I drove to work at 9am.

I saw someone with a bicycle that seemed to have a snow plow or shovel contraption attached to the front of his bike. It didn't look like a makeshift device either... I thought I saw moveable aluminum bars securing it in place.

Anyone seen anything like this? It seemed like he was using it to shovel/plow his driveway more than he was actually riding. I wanted to stop just to figure out what it was, but kept going...

They have mounted push lawn mowers on bikes. Why not a plow? I would hate to hit a pothole in the street that might hurt.

Nice I like the drag behind plow. I should look into making a trail grooming sled.
