West Michigan, where Steve and Marta live, gets really heavy snowfall at this time of the year. "Lake effect" snow causes the winds and moisture from Lake Michigan to dump snow on their part of the state. Recently the snow has been much heavier for them than it is for us in the middle of the state. Last weekend Steve acquired a new snowblower and here he is demonstrating it. I think he should appear in a commercial for this product! His driveway is quite long so with heavy snow like this, a snowblower is an important piece of equipment. Gabriel would probably love to be outside playing in the snow, but it is just too cold with temperatures down to 0 F. or below. Conditions like this make us all look forward to warmer days of spring.
