Strunk White, Idiot Weatherman: Measurements

As I write this, I am warming up my snow blower to remove the "< 1 inch" of snow that Strunk White, Idiot Weatherman, predicted we would get overnight. I will have to do it again before the day is over. But, hey, it's just "< 1 inch".

Snicker, why do you keep listening to the same idiot all the
time?

Snow thrower is fuel and sprayed with silicon spray and stands ready in the shed. Added a bike headlight this year, as last year the only times it got used were in the dark. I added the cab a couple of years ago and it works mostly very well.

If it is a four stroke, give a thought to changing to synthetic oil. During my time with INS I had the chance to talk to a visitor who worked for one of the major oil companies and who was a world renowned expert in internal combustion engine lubrication. She said because of the nature of the snowthrower, going from frozen cold to working very hard in the space of a few moments, the viscosity control of a synthetic oil was the perfect match. (I was a Navy engineroom guy in a previous career, so lube oil is a pet fascination. And get your mind out of he gutter!)

So I took her very gracious advice and use her companies brand.

So far in Philly, no snow.
