"Oh StormBringer! You are mighty Viking Warrior!"
NO - I am DUMB-ASS.
Because my philosophy was to hold off on lashing out to buy the blade attachment with the snowblower for my John Deere until AFTER I'd experienced a Pennsylvania winter first hand, for myself. Then I would know whether or not it was necessary to go that far or not, or whether I could get away with just the usual, $100-dollar-garden-variety snowblower.
Hindsight: I should have lashed out for the $100 job. By the time I dug myself out to where I could venture forth into the hinterland, there was not a snowblower left in the county.
