Winter made an early appearance in Atlanta this week, I am writing this as watching the news showing all of the snow in Buffalo and other parts of the North, so I am not complaining. Last weekend we were at the cabin and woke up to temperatures in the low 20's on Saturday morning. We put off doing our outside jobs as long as possible but eventually had to get to work. My job was to clear the drive way of leaves, part of our drive way is very steep and the wet leaves can make getting up the drive difficult at some times. Here is the drive way before blowing the leaves:
Drive way after blowing leaves
Actually I didn't even get to completely finish, the first blower died a sudden death. We then got out the electric blower, it didn't even last 10 minutes until smoke and flames started coming out of it. A new blower is definitely in our future.
