    That’s sort of the way I’m looking at it. the electric is better functionally, but realistically I’ll have to wait until this one is through. Probably sometime in the ’20s. Is the electric more maneuverable?

    Hoping it is enough rain that the snow does not just change to ice.

    That’s what I am interested in. Not so much now, but when I was working I had to clear the driveway by hand because firing up Old Smokey was not a viable option.

    I didn’t know there are electric snowblowers now!

    Patience is a valuable ingredient in Dad jokes.

    Some time ago my son got a job in the lab of a One Hour Glasses place. Before he left for work I admonished him, “Don’t fall into a machine and make a spectacle of yourself.” I had waited thirty years to be able to use that.

    Yikes! No snow machines on lakes! Before I retired part of the job required snowcatting to mountaintop communication sites. Let me tell you, those things are a lot less fun than they look. We invariably went the morning after the snow hit us and ordinary snowcats (and snowmobiles) don’t like powder or ice. Sliding sideways toward the edge of the mountain is an unpleasant feeling.

    Anyway, safety training was an eyeopener. The #1 cause of snowcat deaths is rollover; the #2 cause is drowning. Nice flat fields of snow… what can go wrong? A pond under it? Nah! Snowmobiles have the same problem for the same reason; the loading on the tracks is roughly the same.

    I still see Cincoflex’s position: many students are behavior problems. Only the biggest ones with an expectation of improvement can be dealt with.

    No. You go now. (It is supposed to be 30 degrees with 18-29 mph winds in Flagstaff.)

    I’ll cut you some slack. Hereabouts puns are good.

    Didn’t they have a cameo around Christmas?
