Angry I am selling all my snowblowers due to lack of snow.

It has been a disappointing season so far. Not much snow in the Boston area. Will it ever snow?

Only fired mine up once so far, for 7" on December 3rd. That's it. I do believe in 2015, when we got something like 120", it only really started in mid January.

.

Considering how rare a blow-able snow event is for most of us its amazing how much thought and enthusiasm people put into snowblowers and snowblowing. Myself included.

Mowers are used much more often and in comparison its like getting a 6" snow event every week for 20 weeks in a row.

But there isnt nearly as much excitement around mowers and mowing.

But there should be!

It sure will, the storm of the century will come right after you sell the last of your snow blowers.

Toro 721-QZR (38743) 2015 (Hemi Predator Power)

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

I think at least to a degree, it relates to the importance of each.

If we get a foot of snow, I can't get to work or the doctor or the grocery store until the driveway is cleared. Having an impassible driveway puts a large part of my life on hold. By comparison, having grass that's a little too long affects pretty much nothing.

.

In NJ the usage ratio of mower/blower is like 40/1. Maybe even leaner than that!

And yet for some reason I have one for mowing and three for blowing
