My Dead Snow Blower Has Bad Timing

5 and a half years ago I was given a free snow thrower by Ben Sheets (the local minister not the former pitcher for the Brewers). It served me well and the price was definitely right until last year. Then I had to start working on it. This year it officially died. I found this out a week.

Que Monty Python “bring out your dead” scene.

Well, I thought to myself, “Robert, just shovel through this year and buy a used snow thrower off Craigslist.” I thought it was a great idea because I hate paying for new when I can just wait for someone to move to a place where they won’t need a snow blower and get a good one for less money. Unfortunately snow blowers don’t go up on Craigslist very often during the Winter and today we received a lot of snow. Thankfully I have boys and with their help the driveway is clean … for now.

Hey Ben. You don’t have another snow blower you want to give away do you? 🙂

Anyhow if anyone hears if a good deal on one please shout at me.

SIDE NOTE – There was enough snow that I almost to ought a new one today (as much as I am loathe to buy for a device that will only be used 4 or 5 times a winter – the vast majority of times a snow blower is more trouble than a shovel). Fortunately, or unfortunately depending upon how you look at it, Pam had the minivan and the snow blower is too big to fit into either of the cars. Whew, that was close.
