...ya can't even break even! When it snowed a month-and-a-half ago, I panicked and spent $9.00 on a cheap plastic snow shovel, rather than waste half-a-day digging out the high-tech, low-effort shovel that I spent >$35.00 on last year (which seems to be buried in the deepest, darkest nether-regions of our shed). How was I to know that this would turn out to be the warmest, least snowy winter here in over thirty years? What a waste of good money. I give up...!!!

Speaking from an environmental point-of-view it's hard to determine
anything, "global warming" to me is on that very slippery slope - perhaps
it's the result of somebodies panic attack & humans are responcible.
Others think it's a phase where going through with the Earth - to me
anythings possible (except for the bit where the Ocean's are mean't to
rise!) the later could well be...

Terry, now you have two shovels. Either sell one, or keep it so both you and your GF can clear the next snowfall, because I'm sure it will come any year. The environmental effects may just as well cause increased snowfall as warmer temperature. Over here, outside has thawed in the last few days after going from -10 to +2 C. Hopefully it will stay mild, so we don't get an electricity shortage as warned for.

You can never have too many shovels! :D
