I'm not going to take pictures of this, but it is so damn odd I had to report it. Yes, odder than keeping a falcon's head in the freezer. I know... Hard to imagine.
Those of you who live in climates with four discernible seasons are familiar with snow, the shoveling of snow and what needs shoveling. Some of you will even be versed in the use of a snow blower and will really get a kick out of this.
My neighbor spent the better part of yesterday afternoon running his snow blower over his front and side yards. Not his driveway, walkways etc. His lawn. He cleared the freaking snow from his lawn! This isn't the first time he's done it either. If you've never had to clear snow I can only explain that using a snow blower to clear your lawn makes as much sense as pushing your car to work. The only thing you could do that was more useless than clearing your lawn of snow with a snow blower would be to do the same thing with a shovel.
Not only will you waste a lot of time, make a lot of noise and waste some gasoline, you will also expose your lawn to the elements, drying the soil out and possibly killing the roots. If the ground is still soft, you will tear up turf, put ruts in the lawn and possibly suck yard debris into the snow blower. Worst of all, your mean neighbor will blog about your idiocy and then trade snarky comments about you with his mean blog friends.
