Snow Buddy's Home

I had a fun day yesterday. It started early, around 7:30. I had to remove my vehicle from the driveway 'cause I was blocking in the wifemobile and she had to get to her job. After backing up approximately 4 feet, I got stuck. No biggie. I got out, shoveled around a little bit, gunned it, rocked it, and got unstuck pretty quickly.

Galoot, Preppygirl and the offspring skipped town on Saturday. I dumped them off in Wingtown to catch a flight to the Windy City. I walked their animal Saturday night and went over to blow their snow Sunday afternoon. To get to the snowblower, I had to pull Galoot's vehicle out of the garage unit. I did their sidewalk and then figured I'd go blow my own drive with it. I picked up the snowblower and threw it in the back of the minivan. I am an animal. Graaaaaaaaaaaah!

The hot muffler melted a hole in my coat. I took the blower over to the Ranch and blew my driveway. There wasn't much snow on it. Next I took a coal shovel and chipped all of the ice off the drive. I was trying as I broke off 3 foot by 4 foot chunks of ice to identify U.S. States, Countries and Continents. I piled the pieces on end atop the 6 foot high snow wall at the side of my driveway. Now if my neighbors turn into blood-thirsty Nordic invaders, I will be ready.

The sun went down, I loaded the blower back into the van and took it back to Galoot and Preppy's. As I was pulling Galoot's car back into the garage, it got stuck. Another 30 mintues of shoveling, and I was out. It was awesome.

BORING.

Holy Shit! You got that thing to work? The auger was all loose when I used it last week. Thanks for walking the mutt and doing the driveway!

Dude- I had to tighten the cable with a crescent wrench and it worked fine.
