This was my road during the February 26, 2010 blizzard.
This was the path to the chicken coop.
This is the insurance that we would never have back to back blizzards ever again.
After reading about how so many of you are dealing with snow, I thankfully look back to our
expensive wise decision to take the plunge and create a worth-while debt.
I'm happy to report we've used it for other uses a lot more than for removing snow. It's aces when it comes to cutting the grass and a pleasure to drive. It has power steering, man o' man, and I have less callouses because it does. It's knocked about an hour and a a half off of mowing time, too!
We have a post hole attachment which came in handy for fencing the new raised bed garden and will be even more handy when we start fencing the rest of the property. And let me tell you, I am REALLY grateful for that. You see, I learned a valuable lesson with a rented two-man gas post hole digger. I learned that you can fly , but, your internal organs stay where you where before the rest of you went on the trip. Long story short - we hit a rock, the post hole digger jammed, and a 5'2" woman went flying through the yard!
We've also used it to grade for the greenhouse, re-arrange the compost bin, move mulch and soil, and let our city friends take a ride and feel like they are a part of a Green Acres skit...
So, if'n you'd like some blizzard insurance, run on out and git yerself one.
We haven't had a blizzard since we did.
Oops, it's only January, right???
Maybe I should have kept my jowls from flappin' too soon...
