Gee, thanks Pete, but the mountain region of east Arizona hasn't had any snow or rain at all yet. Normally we would have had 3 to 4 feet of snow by now, but global warming isn't doing us any favors. Having had one home destroyed by fire, not looking forward to the possibility that it could happen again. Things looking somewhat scary for next Spring and Summer. Now, if you need a slightly used snow shovel. I could sell you one, for the reduced price of $2000.00. Just think, that is $5000,00 less than that new snowblower ! With all that money left over you would have enough for a down payment on a stick built trailer. Just kidding !
