Under snow objects, Hit them all

I have no basement, no shed, on a slab, 2 car garage which holds my extra household items, winter summer lawn and sports equipment, surfboards, bicycles, lawn and garden supplies, hoses, also holds my tools and supplies for almost any home improvements, automotive, small engines, carpentry, welding, painting, plumbing, electrical, tile work, air tools, welding equipment, storage shelves with very limited walking room.

I have no room to work except outside. All my gas equipment is under tarps including my 7 power washers, gas powered auger. I have stuff in front of the garage doors, side of the house, up against the back of the house.

With every snow I make circular and figure eight pathways in the yard so my 2 doggies have a place to move around.

With my snowblower over the years I have run over these more than once and wrapped them around the auger and impeller - bricks to hold the tarps down, water hoses, air hoses, plastic lawn edging, blue tarps, electric cords, rope, newspapers, wood, plastic bottles, weed whackers, shovels, and other equipment.

Never broke a shear pin. Never damaged a snowblower. Spent time on my knees in the snow cold saying all well my fault. I've lost a few hoses, electric cords have become shorter, tarps have become smaller, newspapers have become lawn mulch.

I have to get this **** cleaned up, organized, thrown out, sold, given away.

I once wrapped 30' of a 50' dog cable lead around my auger. I also pulled the Christmas lights off my neighbor's garage eave when I tangled up the power cord (he laid across his drive). And I a single day I once broke 12+ shear pins doing EOD snow removal (must have been a bad bunch).

Lol, are you my neighbor? You have described his property flawlessly, hahahaha.




I came close to have my auger swallow a 20 ft dog leash, I don't even own a dog, it's my sister in law's when she brings her dog with her. Saw my kids play with it the other day, they must have let it in the middle of the driveway.

Metal cable awgggg, chain? Maybe worse, can't pull it out.

Xmas lights, funny, I'm laughing. Sorry.

Time for a yard sale!

I live a couple miles from a scrap yard. If I see a vintage table saw or lawn mower or snowmobile there it usually follows me home. I've resold some stuff on ebay and made a profit but I think those days are past. I only have two pressure washers -I feel cheated somehow.

Same. I have metal scrappers that drop stuff off to give me I'd sell cheap. In return I give them whatever I don't use back or junk.

I have a 12hp power washer that needs a pump rebuild. Kit costs $400!

A 8hp p.w. that needs a new carb.

Four 5hp that need pump rebuilds.

And 2 identical electric p.w. that need a pump swap.

You have a face that even a mother has questioned.

Hi, how have you been? Interesting meeting you on here. We will have some laughs about it.

By the way, I'm getting tired of the Gendarmes visiting my property. Thanks.

Yes, it was a metal cable. Took me 20 minutes with a light duty bolt cutter to free it up. Yes, the Christmas lights incident was particularly humorous. Even funnier if you were there. They were held on by plastic snaps. And I can still hear the pinging sound of the plastic snaps as they were slowly and systematically dislodged (one by one). Like watching dominoes falling in slow motion. Only the snaps were flying.

Neighbor took the whole thing in stride. I replaced the power cord (even though he insisted it wasn't necessary).

If I can't store it inside a building I won't own it. No chance of hitting stuff with mowers or blowers.
