Just Call Me Mr. Plow

I’ve done a fair amount of whining, complaining, and kvetching about snow removal on this blog. It’s time to level up. I got a snow blower.

We got hit with about six inches of powder a couple days after Christmas. Then we were hit with wretched cold and I just said, “screw it, it’s too cold”. Saturday it warmed up a little so I made my virgin run.

It worked pretty well. There’s a layer of ice under everything so there were a few times when the blower just stalled so I had to goose it a little. But on packed snow or a less than glass surface it just plowed ahead. It’s still a workout albeit a quicker one. I did the driveway, sidewalks, and even a stretch of my neighbor’s sidewalk in the time it would have taken me to do half the driveway. It was still an impressive cardio workout and the tendinitis in my hands really flamed up after dealing with those operating handles. But I’m happy with how quickly I figured out how to run the thing and how much snow it cleared.

I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
