This is just great. It's snowing, and now I will have to shovel snow. I would use my snow blower, but it blew a tire. It was horrible. There I was, blowing snow on our long driveway, everything just going fine, when all of a sudden there was a bang! and the snow blower lurched to the left. I just missed hitting the house. Then it spun around and almost took out some of our fence. We just missed hitting a squirrel that was setting on the fence. He dove for cover.
The snow blower than lurched to the right and spun around. We were going back up the driveway. We just missed our trailer and the cat that was on it, that was watching the squirrel on the fence. While all of this was going on, I was trying to kick the blower out of gear. But no such luck. We ran into a pine tree, just missing the snowman on the side of the driveway.
You would think that Sears would put air bags on their snow blowers.
I also found out that snow blowers do not make good mulchers. Again, you would think that Sears would come up with a combo machine that does both. But it does a great job with lawn hoses! Cuts them up 'til they look like links of sausage. So then I have to keep the dog away from what's left of the hose.
The driveway is not finished. I have a half mulched pine tree. And I think that I hurt myself when I went over the handle bars of the snow blower. The wife gave me hell when she saw me laying in the backyard, and made some comment about my playing around and making snow angels or something.
Yep, I really like my snow blower. It makes things so much easier.
