Muse: My Favourite Unfair-Weather Friend

They say a dog is ‘man’s best friend’, but for 3 or 4 days every Winter, when the snow falls really deep, wet and heavy like it did this past week, I have to give my vote to my old rusty snowblower. Poor thing looked more like a slush extruder Wednesday morning, than a snowthrower. But that 12-year old beast kept chugging along until the entire driveway was all clear. Amazing. If you’re ever looking for an unusual gift for yourself or someone else that just keeps on giving, consider a snowblower: loves your back, unconditionally.

Music to suit: Grant green, ‘Iron City’
