Machines Can Make You Crazy

Remember my great accomplishment at getting the snowblower all ready to run for the season? Ha! It started right up this morning, ran for 15 seconds and decided it was all done. End of story. Tonight it went off to small engine hospital. Ester and I dragged it down all the way to the road because the top probably isn't cleared well enough for the guy to bring his trailer up and turn it around.

The rest of the day was spent shoveling by hand or playing games with Ester. Since the snow is going to continue, I'm pretty sure that tomorrow will be more of the same. It's a l-o-o-o-o-n-g driveway.

You have a hospital for snowblowers?!

Ugh. I guess it took one look at the day ahead and conked out. Can't say I blame it.

Stay warm and safe inside.

Yeah, cranking mine resulted in zip-- worked in November. Drive covered too deep to get through, guess I'll call a cab. Oh, wait. We don't have any of those either. Well, the pantry is pretty full right now.

That's frustration. Here's hoping the surgeons at the snow-blower hospital are fast and efficient.

oh no. Isn't that the way it always goes though. We'll most likely be doing some shoveling here too. Supposed to get up to a foot over night.
