    Roads were super slick this morning here in NY. Black ice I think, was barely anything on the road, but I was sliding everywhere.

    10 days ago or so it was snowy and the weather forecast said more than likely even more snow on the way. So I order a snow blower. Since then, nothing but sun and clear skies. Thanks weather people!

    Do you own a lot of property or something? And need to make a bunch of walkways?

    But no snow is just as good I guess. Michigan is so unpredictable. Next week they'll say mid 30s and we'll get -5 with a foot of snow.

    Holy shit 2 days ago was sunny and California cold. Yesterday started raining that didn't finish till this morning with it getting colder and colder until the sun came out about half an hour ago. Like no shit was snowing/hailing a few miles from me an hour ago. And here it was in mid 30s until the sun came out and now already up to high 40s lol.

    I just asked cause aren't snow blowers kinda expensive? We just buy bags of salt around here but we don't get as much snow as you guys do.

    They vary depending on how they function.

    One stage throwers are fairly cheap, which is what Kal got.
    Two stage blowers can be 400-1200 depending on features, HP, etc. but are better for clearing large amounts of snow or larger areas.
    Three stage blowers are ridiculous and can clear 12"+ of snow with ease and some have the ability to break up the ice on your driveway/walkway.

    I'm looking to get a two stage blower made by Toro for about $800 to clear my driveway because fuck shoveling my driveway.

    Yeah mine was only $70. It's electric corded (already have a 100 ft cord). My drive doesn't warrant the more expensive ones. Plus, worse case my neighbor across the street has a nice gas one and will help out. Earlier this winter when we did get enough snow we just paid him a few duckets to plow.
