We canceled services this morning due to snow and high winds.  The church is in a small town SW of Cedar Rapids and the drive to it from anywhere were looking rough...

So I drove my wife around the area with here 18 MP DSLR camera to get some winter shots.  Imagine my surprise when I saw an older man using a patio 110 (April yellow hood and replacement seat) to blow snow!  I figured out where he lives and will check it out in the spring.  

Anyone else see one at work?

Imagine our surprise when pics weren't included right off the bat.

I trim mow with mine every week (when the grass grows) and used it as a mule for a while before I got my GT-14. :thumbs:
