Heh. Our family caved in the big snow storm shortly after New Year'* Day in 1999, where the Mayor of Toronto called in the army



It helps, we've got a ~6 car length, one-wide (two-wide if you include the neighbour'* mutual drive, we help each other) driveway.

For some reason my dad wanted me to start up out snowblower. (It'* a mid 80'* model) Fist pull and it fired right up, hasn't been started in over a year. I walked by my dad, "oh yeah it started on the first pull, but that'* just because I'm a god" (he can't start that thing if his life depended on it).

Its not like we would use it, I will end up using our special edition wooden handled 30" wide metal shovel!!!
