Wanted to use blower today, but someone plowed my driveway!

I was at work today and we got over an inch of snow. I thought, great, I can use my new snowblower to clear the driveway when I get home!
My wife texted me and said some guy in a plow truck just cleared the driveway!
She got him to stop after he was almost done, and he thought we were the family that lived in our house last Winter! Whoops! Should have checked that they wanted your plow services this year, bub!
I wasn't mad, but I did get to try out the new blower to clean up his work a bit, and clear out what the town plows put at the end of the driveway and in front of the mail box. The Cub worked great! I was a little rusty at running a snow blower, since it's been over 4 years, but I got the hang of it now.

haha! We were worried he was going to charge us! That's the whole reason I bought a blower, so I wouldn't have to pay someone!

Thanks, it does look good all clean and new. So far I like it. Can't wait to try it in some deeper snow.

Waiting for the big storm myself. So far this season, I could have used my shop vacuum.

HS 928 TCD. It's Canadian eh! (Sure I'm done modifying it, for now, until next time.......)

They salt the town roads here for an inch or so, no plowing or snowblowing. I use a 4' shovel for that little of snow.

The main roads were still very slick, lots of accidents yesterday, and I'm sure my driveway was slick as well. My Jeep would have had no problem with the snow, but it is in our lease to keep the driveway cleared.
Our driveway is U shaped, so it's fairly long as well. A shovel would have taken quite a while!
