It may be picturesque, but I don’t wanna live in one anymore! I want to be somewhere warm and sunny!
Ok, complaining time is over (for the moment anyway).
This morning we got up bright and early….well, it wasn’t bright yet, but it definitely was early. All of yesterday’s storm still needed to be cleared from the driveway. Now, we are even more grateful that we invested in the “monster” for our last four winters. Our previous snow blower was only 8 hp, and slushy snow and ice was too much for it. In fact, I think it was when we were shoveling several inches of heavy slushy snow last year that the thought of buying a new snow blower first came to mind. The monster is 16 hp, so we were hoping that it would be up to the job.
This is maybe 3 inches of packed down snow, with about an inch of ice on top.
Those serrated edge augers are doing their job. Chop that ice right up!!
Another triumph for the monster! It performed admirably!!
