    Did my own personal Blow Job this Morning

    Snow blower, that is - about 12 inches here. Snow depth, that is.

    You bad boy. I'm at work and I pulled this up in front of co-workers. "Tell me about your blow jobs".

    They already suspect I'm difference because of the, you know, recumbent thing.

    Snow happens (here is my blower):

    Having a flat tire as part of the total cycling experience is highly overrated. Knowing how to fix one quickly is not.

    Over here most of us settle for a broom and shovel--Any more than that and I hibernate.

    I admire you......takes a lot of flexibility, dexterity, and desire to get out there and do your own blowing. Around here, 6 -7 inches is about it, 12 inches is pretty awesome. Some people, I understand, put up with 2 to 3 feet. But that seems just hard to believe.

    We have two daughters that live in Mt. Shasta Ca. and 5 and 6 ft is not uncommon there. You gotta love snow to live there.

    Come to think of it, given your emphasis on exercise and good health, I'm a bit surprised you even own a snowblower for that little driveway.

    From what I have read, shoveling snow is not a good exercise - in fact, it can blow out one's back, and is not a good aerobic exercise - hard on one's heart.

    We don't need snow blowers here. We need giant ice picks.
    Last January we received 4-6 inches of snow one evening, promptly followed by a few hours of freezing rain. The next 5 days the temperature never got above freezing. We were stranded in the house for 5 days.

    Whoa. I thought maybe a blue dress and someone named Monica had resurfaced.

    If the snow is light and not too deep, you might try your leaf blower. Works. Now that would be a true blow job as a snow blower technically throws the snow.

    My son lives in Newnan Ga. and moved there from Wisconsin and his boss is from Michigan. He sad that thy were some of the only people to show up for work that day of the big snow.

    12" inches isn't always twelve inches (ask any woman) Having moved both, heavy midwestern slop and mountain powder are night and day.

    What I learned on "back in the day", and what I use now.

    My bro still has the model A at 9K feet outside Nederland, CO., but it's retired now.

    It's like a lot of other things, you need the proper tools and technique.....

    First the tools, you need snow shovels in various widths, the heavier the snow the smaller the shovel, you also need a pusher. A pusher is a wide shovel that is shaped like a long C, you never lift it, you push the snow, then use the shovel to lift it. Technique, lift as little as possible, I put the pusher on an angle, go once all the way down, then move over slightly and go back up, then go down pushing it to the sides of the drive, then use a straight shovel to shape the bank into a curved shape so that it wouldn't collapse back. The most important thing, if the snow is heavy, don't do it all at once, work on it for say an hour, then take a break.....
