Snowblower obsession!

I can't believe ever since I found this site I've been obsessed with redoing my old blower. Even buying another. I can't seem to find enough info,posts or parts to buy. It reminds me of building an old hot rod but much cheaper. Yup wife thinks I went over the deep end.

I hear ya with the FFLF (Female Fun Limitation Factor) Mine thought I went off the deep end when I was working to get my LED lights set up on my blower last weekend. Now that project is done, and it is still 8 degree's as I type, I find myself wondering, "what's next".

You know you have an obsession when you are constantly minimizing your snowblower web site screens when a family member approaches because they just don't get it and they think you are wacko.

When we first showed up here, we didn't know when we posted our introduction we were supposed to say
"Hello, my name is (first name) and I'm a snow blower aholic.

Let me just say reading this thread has made me feel better, knowing I'm not alone. I swear I could've written each one myself, lol. Especially the ones about the wife. I hide stuff behind the shed, in the attic, at my parents house. Now getting to Snapper mowers with the summer coming, uhoh...I change with the seasons, but my first love is the ole Ariens.

I don't hide anything but she just thinks I'm nuts when I talk about snowblowers. She gets that glazed over look in her eyes.
