    Wow. 36 hours. That's terrible. Glad it's back on.
    Extremism is so easy. You've got your position, and that's it. It doesn't take much thought. And when you go far enough to the right you meet the same idiots coming around from the left.

      Shoveled 3-inches of ice/snow from my drive and my mother-in-law's drive yesterday. Took me about 2.5 hours. A neighbor has a Ford tractor with a frontloader and grader box attachment. He was working on his drive and stopped by to ask if I needed mine cleared. Told him I needed the exercise but I appreciated the offer. He went back to clearing his, but I think he's still getting acclimated to the tractor because it took him a really long time. I was 3/4 finished when he finished his.
      I got this as a Christmas gift and am surprised at how well it works. Only thing I don't like about it is the dual trigger handle makes my thumb get tired after a bit.

        Now it’s water. I still have it for now, but we’re under a boil water notice. Be a heck of a thing if a person had no power, and an electric stove.

          I thought about that this morning watching the news, and many have neither electric or gas, so that's a huge obstacle.

            My family lives about 45 miles north of here. They have no power, no water, and the roads are solid ice. Grocery stores and gas stations are mainly closed. My dad said it’s the worst he’s seen since the winter of 1950 - 1951 in Kentucky.

                This could be a good compromise. I wish it were battery powered.
