Renner, who lives outside Reno near Mt. Rose-Ski Tahoe, has previously posted videos and photos of himself using his plow to help his family get out of winter storms once they’re over.
“I have so much respect for Mother Earth, and Mother Nature … I expect to lose the fight but I’ll always give it my best shot #tahoelife life #snowthrower,” he captioned a mid-December video which saw him clearing a path with his plow.
