And I didn't take any pix because it didn't stick around very long.
Got about 2" of big, fluffy flakes that melted almost as soon as they hit, only piling up on the grass and trees.
Going down to 27* tonight, and predicted 20* on Sunday night. Then it goes back into the 60's so I can finish up all the winterizing here.
Ordered one of these from Home Depot:
Yup, it's electric, and it's battery powered. The "Self Propelled" feature was a must-have for the wife to use it. She's never muscled one of these around, so I want it to be at least "usable" for her. No, I'm not going to stand inside with a hot cuppa and watch my poor little wife do the driveway and sidewalks! But knowing her, there's times she's gonna get all wound up tighter than an 8-day clock if I haven't cleared the sidewalk and driveway in a "timely manner". Hey...the city gives you 24 hours to shovel! I know, I know......be a good neighbor and all, and do it reasonably fast, but I think noon is "reasonably fast" most days.
And I do very good work.....
Anyway.....the thing got good ratings, and I don't want to take on another Infernal Combustion Device that I'M the one who has to maintain and make run. Small engines can be a major pain to get running at 10*, BTDT, don't need it any longer.
I don't know how much snow throwing and self-propelling time 200 WattHours is good for, but we're gonna find out.....
