Son of a gun!

It snowed about an inch and a half here so I got out my snowblower to try out for the first time.  I followed the instructions for the manual start and it sputtered to life.  I blew maybe ten linear feet before it stopped.  I went to restart it and the starter cord broke.  Gah.

In the 45s of use I realized I want one with electric start and a much bigger engine than this 5HP.  My plumber told me 5HP wouldn't be enough, but I didn't listen.

I ended up shoveling the driveway the good old fashioned way so I got some more exercise this afternoon.

It isn't supposed to snow for another week or so which is good.
