The other day a neighbor of mine told me that her son has been bugging her to buy a snow blower. Her response? “Not while you’re young, and healthy and we have a shovel.”
Good answer. But the kid is also resourceful. Recently he found an old lawnmower that someone had put out for the Reusables Exchange awhile back. He grabbed it, took it home and got it running. Once he verified – with an expert – that the lawnmower was safe to use, he waited patiently for the first snowfall to try out his idea of using a lawnmower to blow snow.
I’m not advocating this activity, by the way. And it’s also not a unique idea, as it turns out. Others have had the same idea.
This looks like a good ol’ Husqvarna, to me…
