We got over a foot of snow 2 days ago . The next day we fired the tractor up to plow . Our driveway is pretty long . After 5 hours of plowing in negative temps , DH comes in and tells me we have a flat tire on one of the rear wheels ! Seems he didn't pick up one of his screw drivers and it got hooked up in the chains on the wheel . Long story short....$250 later we got it fixed . Both of us are out of work due to health issues and Christmas is a little drab this year (just the basics for us and the kids , the kids are hating it !) Sorry , just had to vent .
