I have some natural boundaries that will give them about 15 acres to patrol. It has a wood line on the north, a road on the west, a creek on the south and a logging road/tree line on the north. I have been thinking of walking it with one of those wheels that clicks off measurements in feet, but don't look forward to trying to roll that thing through the woods on the other side of the creek.
You can do a quickie with Google: https://www.daftlogic.com/projects-google-maps-area-calculator-tool.htm
Only straight lines but if you make a LOT of them they will approximate a curved line

Tide comes in red too. Don't eat shellfish living in a red tide area.

At least this time it is light, powdery snow. The neighbors all use snow blowers which takes them a lot longer than me during it manually. Ridiculous, powdery snow doesn't tax the body. I just walk back and forth pushing the snow away - it's amazing how little time was spent to do a long driveway. Heavy wet snow or brittle icy snow are entirely different and quite a task. I guess snow blowers can't handle THAT.
Actually they can. You are right, light and fluffy is probably harder for a snowblower to pick up. I've been known to use a push broom on a couple of inches of "it blows away" snow.

Late, yeah, it's good that we got some snow to insulate the ground, too bad we had the cold snap before the snow. But at least now trees and stuff won't take much further damage if it gets cold again. Also, I hope we get some nice skiing tracks made somewhere close by.
Same circumstances here. Raining 2 days ago, most of the snow melted, 13F last night with no "blanket" to slow the ground freezing.
Don't mess up your back shoveling Felix!
