Weather and snow throwers

Posted on July 15, 2009

Up here in the Northeast this summer’s been rainier and at times cooler than most would like, especially those in the home building industry who have to work outside. We feel for you! Being somewhat of a weather enthusiast, I could not help but notice that is calling for this upcoming winter to be one of the snowiest winters in the last 5 years.  Their late summer and early winter forecast can be found here. Hearing a forecast this far out cautions us to take it with a grain of salt however judging from last winter, it’s hard to think this winter will be sunny and tropical in Connecticut either.

In the chance that their forecast becomes reality, looking for a snow thrower this time of year could present some nice deal opportunities. For those in the market, we would confidently throw a nod behind Ariens, we have the 722 model.

The many snowstorms last winter gave us plenty of opportunity to try out our the snow thrower and we were pleased with it’s performance. The powdery snow was handled with ease and we were impressed with it’s ability to handle the hard, frozen-over chunks. I suppose for our particular model an automatic would have been nice but even without it, the machine glides smoothly and was not tiring at all. Sure beats shoveling any day!

We purchased ours over at Sudden Service in South Windsor, CT.  Great, knowledgeable people to deal with.

If the heat avoids this region for the rest summer… I can’t say we’ll be jealous, it’s good weather for working in our opinion. However, like Bastardi asks… is it the result of something that may bring us a cold winter? We’ll be waiting along with you guys to find out!
