Wow, we are staying in my hometown in Indiana for a little while. On Tuesday we received about a foot of snow. On Wednesday I shoveled the house we are staying at and then headed over to my mothers house so I could use her snowblower to clear her driveway. It was the first time I had ever used a snowblower. The snowblower was a lot of fun once I figured it out. The person across the street had the driveway cleared in about the same time shoveling manually. Of course his drive was smaller, but it goes to show that a man who uses a shovel can keep up with a newbie on a snowblower. Still my back did not ache this morning which I figured it would have had I shoveled more. Big praise there.
