Outside, it's double-digit snow accumulation and single-digit temperatures, but here in the Car Lust Garage it's toasty warm and there's plenty of coffee, tea, and cocoa, and maybe some hot cider if I can find the mulling spices. Grab something to drink and join the conversation.
My jazzy new 21" snowblower got a real workout over the weekend. We got hit by a lake effect snow that was spectacular enough to send the TV news producers and newspaper editors scurrying to find their archival images of the Great Blizzard of 1978. This time around, the quantity of snowfall wasn't the issue so much as it was the 30-knot winds. In such conditions, a certain sensitivity to wind direction is in order when figuring out which way to point the snowblower's discharge chute. Ask me how I know.
On Saturday, the boys had some friends of theirs over for the day, and I had to run the 'blower to clear the drifts off the driveway so they could get in--and then run it again that evening so they could get out of the driveway and go home!
