Be Careful What You Wish For
Well, when I fractured my heel, I realized I was going to need a better way to shovel out my driveway, which is 50 feet long and runs between two walls going from 5 feet high to 2 feet high.
So I ponied up $300 for a much more powerful snow thrower than I had before.
Having gotten my new toy, I wanted a chance to test it.
I should have known better.
The blizzard in the New York area was overkill by Mother Nature.
That's not my driveway but, after 3 hours of work, it is depressingly familiar looking.
Just because you're not shoveling doesn't mean you're not straining.
Yeah, I try to be. I work for a while and go back in to warm up and rest. The 3 hours I put in on the driveway was stretched over a 5 1/2 hour period
