    At the risk of opening up a can of worms...if he wants to get stone off of a parking lot, a power broom and a wheel blower is the way to go over a backpack blower.

    My wife can't say much about my equipment purchases since nothing less than a $1,500 vacuum cleaner was good enough for her, lol.

    Personally I have a pretty busy day planned. I have to go to 2 different banks to cover the mortgage (withdraw from one and deposit in the other), get geared up for a dusting of snow, retrieve the garbage can and recyclable bin from the curb and pick up my son at school. If I have time I may even shower and shave.
