one eye?

deterbuzzard- Did you just hurt your eye? or is it long time. If just hurt it hoping healing goes well. To original poster- Thanks on the info. I'm pretty mellow guy but if mine ended up blowing someone elses drive across town and I found them.. Mellow Man would become Mad Man for sure.

did a little write up on knocking myself silly and scratching my eyeball with a snow brush/ ice scraper a few weeks ago, been having headaches ever since. doc appointment tomorrow at 10
even if I'm here blowing snow my garage is locked so nobody sneaks off with one of my snowblowers

I hate hearing about thefts. We had a snowblower theft last year in our neighborhood in broad daylight. It was a house right next door to the elementary school my kids go to, and it was during the student pick up time. A guy pulled right into their driveway, pulled the newer ariens two stage out of the shed and loaded it into his truck. The neighbors who saw it just assumed the guy was supposed to be there.

When hurricane sandy hit here, the punks stealing generators would have a lawn mower running... get it up to the house... take the generator... leave the mower running. By the time the owner checked why the power was off the scumbags were gone.

For real!

Around here, security systems are Remington 870's. And considering that the state laws have changed to include an affirmative defense of property, thefts are not as frequent.

Garage:
MTD....2 stage(modern 8.5 HP) not my favorite
Honda HS622 TA-B - acquired at an auction- nice machine for it's size.
Toro S-140- Picked it up on trash day... it runs, sort of.
Yamaha YS 240 TB "Ricky" latest Craigslist find- on the bench now.

I often leave mine out in the sun for the afternoon to melt the ice off it. I guess I won't do THAT anymore!!
