My first snow blower usage was only 4 or 5 years ago. I'm standing here, and the snow is going 20 or 30' over there -
what's not to like about that?
One little caveat - it's almost always windy just after a snow storm.
One day of post storm calm would be nice to keep the snow out of our faces, but Mother Nature thinks otherwise.
I'll never forget one day while blowing snow, the boss and family arrived. I opened the back hatch of their car to unload and said "Hello." The kids just looked at me, and said nothing. A fully iced beard and mirrored glacier shades perhaps? I guess they thought Admiral Byrd had risen from the dead to blow their driveway.
