May. 28th, 2007 @ 11:09 pm To hell with global warming - we bought a snow blower tonight!
My husband, ever the bargain seeker, found a posting for a second-hand snowblower at a great price. The woman was moving to a condo and had maintained the machine beautifully. After a brief run of the engine, and a quick look-over, we snapped it up. Now we store it for (hopefully) 7 months.

I am very happy to finally have a reasonable snowblower seeing that we live on the inside side of a curve and our driveway slopes down towards our house, so not only do we get the plow dump, but any blowing snow ends up down there. The last machine hubby bought should have been a prop in a Stephen King novel. It was huge, ancient and had no safety features. It was built to seperate your limbs from your torso, weighed 3 times more than necessary and yet it didn't have assisted drive and no electric start. Perfect formula for a maiming. I've lived here 11 years, and not once have I used motorized means to remove snow. But I'm not saying I can't wait.
Who does she think she is?

I am happy for your husband..but as for you young lady-You will NOT be out there this year/season blowing snow. You will have your feet up enjoying hot cocoa with marshmellows. Yup.

Gosh, his old machine really sounds horrible. I am so happy that he never experienced any little accidents seeing it was an accident-magnet.
