We’re getting our first snow as I write this. It’s pretty, big white flakes, and fortunately everything is so warm that it’s not sticking to anything.
Serendipitously, we bought our snowblower last weekend and had it delivered on Tuesday. In reading over the owner’s manual, I’m reading the safety section very carefully, having never operated a machine like this, and came across the following warning (relevant parts bolded by me):
Keep area of operation clear of all toys, pets, and debris. Thrown objects can cause injury.
Somehow I think that if your pet gets caught by the snowblower, the injuries caused when he is thrown at you will be the least of your concerns.
