The ACME Automated Snowthrower

Posted Tuesday, February 5, 2008, at 10:49 AM

When I went to bed last night, the weather forecast was for 1 to 3 inches of blowing snow. When I got up this morning, we had about 6 inches of the white stuff, the wind was blowing, and the current forecast is for 6 to 10 inches of new snow before it's over.

Our sidewalk and driveway on the farm are pretty long, so you know I wasn't too enthused about shoveling. Enter the ACME Automated Snowthrower! This snowthrower is unlike any you can buy. You see...it's my father-in-law!

Industry should invent a machine that can do what the ACME Automated Snowthrower does. It fuels itself, starts itself, turns itself off (once in a while), and is always looking for another job to do. Not only does it automatically shovel snow, it also automatically cuts wood, moves furniture, hacks weeds, and is constantly looking for more work to do.

I can never say thank you enough to my father in law for all he does for us around the farm when he is here. I have to admit that I like his snowthrower and chainsaw attachments the best.
