The first significant snow storm of the season occurred Saturday resulting in a mailbox knocked off its post by snow plows and a cranky barely two-year-old snow blower. Not a good start to the winter season.
The mailbox I fixed with bungee cords and the snow blower seems to be working fine-after the fact. I managed to get the driveway done but it was slow going. Something appears to be going on with the drive train. The engine and auger itself which actually throws the snow were working fine. I'll work on it some more to see if it needs to be brought in.
Let's hope this isn't an omen of things to come.
