Leave it to Dad!

Dad's always been a handyman and I just have to toot his horn right now. Yesterday Baltimore received about 20 inches of snow. Dad loves storms like this so he can use his snow blower. About 3/4 of the way into the storm (5:45pm on a Sunday), the wheel of Dad's snow blower broke. Between closing time and the storm, no stores were open to buy a replacement part. My parents have a large driveway and Dad wanted to snowblowe my great grandfather's house too. Needless to say, Dad was determined to fix the snow blower. After multiple mumblings to himself, he decided to make a wooden wheel. Yes, a wooden wheel. Dad said overall it worked well enough to finish out this storm. Dad said the only major problem was the wooden wheel iced and he'd have to thaw it out. I think it's quite impressive either way!
