HOW DID THE STORM DO YOU?

We got 18" of the white stuff across that driveway - drifting to THREE FEET in places - and I spent the better part of six hours shoveling it.

"Oh StormBringer! You are mighty Viking Warrior!"

NO - I am DUMB-ASS.

"Why?"

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.

  1. Go with the largest walk behind snow blower you can find. They are about the same price (or cheaper) as JD attachment, take up less space in garage & are more maneuverable for walkways & around cars.

  2. You should have been up here last year when we had a real snow. Took me 3hrs to do what is normally a 45min. commute down here west of DC. And we were lucky as a seldom used dirt back road was not blocked by an idiot in a 2wd...at least by the time we got through.
