Snow day

We got dumped on good yesterday and this morning, about a foot total. Not much compared with a lot of other places in the country but that's a good snowfall for SE Pennsylvania. So I finally got to use the Troybilt snowblower I got before Thanksgiving.

It works great and beats the heck out of shovelling. After cleaning my driveway and sidewalks I took care of my neighbor, a widow who lives alone and who appreciated the help. I'm glad I got a two stage unit. Even so, the bottom of my driveway was plowed in and it required multiple passes in each spot to clear.

The temp was in the teens with a good wind, so the wind chill factor was in the low single digits. It made me glad that I'm sporting a beard now. My face never got cold. :-)
