I spent my share of the tax return on a 22" Toro two stroke "Snow Thrower" it worked real nice and even better my back, wrists, elbows, abs and guts don't hurt from stooping over and chucking snow.
Yeah, I feel bad about polluting but I'm 41, we have a huge driveway and expanse of sidewalk, the neighbor is elderly and can't do his anymore and I already lift and shift vast quantities of paper around all day so I think I'm fucking well entitled to a little labor saving device.
On the flip side we were in New O'rleans last week for spring break-still a greatplace to visit-one day was 86 F and Humid-and the hot weather was just getting started. My kid sister routinely ran the air conditioning in her small,cramped (and uncomfortable!) Mazda MX3 sport coupe...So thats the Flip side-I have no plans for moving as of yet.
