Well it snowed again yesterday, which is the second significant snow storm this year. The local TV news stations did their usual coverage of people buying milk, bread, rock salt and snow shovels. Milk and bread seamed to be in good supply but as the rock salt and snow shovels were hard to find as most places were out of stock. Now it is understandable that the rock salt would be gone from the shelves but snow shovels. This is not news, it seams every storm drives people out to buy snow shovels. What I would like to know is what did they do with the shovel they used last year or for that matter the snow earlier this year?
Maybe they take their frustration out on the shovel and beat it to death or it could be they leave them in the driveway and run over it with the car. Kids could be secretly using them to slide down the local hill or the neighbor decides to take back the one he let you borrow last year. Whatever the cause, being in the business of manufacturing new or finding lost snow shovels could make you rich!
