    I'll throw out 2 hints... It snowed here (again) yesterday, and last monday I bought a new single stage Toro snow blower...


    Lesson learned!

    Yep... I will now have 1 75' cord and 1 15' cord, lol. That's if I decide to put ends on both sections... This is just a 16ga. cord, so it's not like it's a big loss. I have about a mile of extension cords overall (literally). I do a LOT of Christmas lights around here! This cord ran to my 7' inflatable snow globe and the spotlights for it.

    Yes, I was forewarned about ths from a couple people... But I thought I knew exactly where this cord passed over the sidewalk and I was just going to raise the front up slightly to run right over it.... Bad idea! I was more afraid I may have damaged the bearings on the snowblower! It was wrapped in there TIGHT. That's the reason it's cut into peices, that's the only way I was able to get it un-wound out of there. :dizzy:

    I don't care who you are, that's funny. Reminds me of when I took a mower over a garden hose:hammerhead::hammerhead:

    I was pretty mad at myself then, and out $20 for a new hose, now I look back and laugh:laugh::laugh:

    Still mad about the newspaper I hit with the 36" T-bar. 4lbs of instant confetti to clean up.:cool2:
