I survived The Blizzard Of 93 in Birmingham, I never lost power because
I was downtown a few blocks from UAB and I sat up there in my second
story lair watching the National Guard Hummvees rattle up and down the
city streets and James Span the weatherman jumping up and down like an
excited chimp on the 24 hour TV weather disaster broadcast. A lot of
people lost power but I was cozy with the only problem being the phone
was out so I couldn't get on The Internet (dialup back then).
My $1600 18 hp Murray garden tractor mounted $400 40" single stage snow
blower has been cleaning my 100 ft 2 lane driveway right down to the
asphalt for the past 12 years.

name tractors haven't gone up too much since, I understand the blower
attachment can now cost up to 4x the original price.
Before the blower, I had a 48" plow blade mounted on it, but because of
the amount and regularity of snow we get up here, my driveway kept
In the spring, the blower is taken off and the 46" mower deck is put on.
All reside in a 12' x 16' shed facing the driveway..
