We knew that the snow was coming. I guess you don't need to be an Einstein to know that snow is going to fall in Michigan in the winter. Two days ago R made sure the snow blower was prepped and ready to go. The snow blower started right up...no problem.....let it snow.
Well it snowed. R bundled up and went into the garage to start the snow blower and it wouldn't start. Yup that's right. Two days ago ran like a top. Today nothing. R pulled the plug because with these two stroke engines, the plug can easily get fouled. He said it looked like a cobweb across the electrode. He blew it off and reinstalled it. He wasn't expecting much but what the heck.
Our blower has an electric start. It uses a heavy duty extension cord rather than a battery to start the blower. This is actually great because batteries go dead and in extreme cold they don't turn over a cold engine very well. R hit the start button and it started right up. Whew...dodged a bullet there.
So after thawing out, we got another late start. R worked on the ceiling and I worked on the paint scraping. My paint scraping is moving along fairly fast. This area isn't uncovering anything unexpected. Of course I found another switch box and where there was once a sconce. But the paint is coming off without much trouble.
