Winter does strange things to a person's mind.
Sure, the first snowstorm is a joy. Nature's cold, silent beauty, blanketed in an angelic layer of solitude.
The second snowstorm? Sure! Novelty hasn't worn off yet, and anyway, that first storm was just a dusting that turned into a slushy mess after 20 minutes.
But now? It's gol-danged February. You're witnessing what feels like your eight-hundred-thousandth snowstorm, and it's not cute anymore.
Neither is the thought of shoveling, plowing, or snowblowing all that powdery winter angst off your driveway.
So say you've got a short fuse, and a welder, and a snowblower, and a Jeep Cherokee. Oh, and a 900 cc Kawasaki Ninja sportbike engine. All just kickin' around in the shed.
You see where this is going.
Yes, shows just what kind of pain a full-throttle 100- horsepower crotch rocket engine can inflict on snow. Be warned, it's loud.
And, frankly, it doesn't seem to be a particularly effective means of snow removal.
But, damn. Four-liter-Jeeping down a snow-covered driveway, mercilessly blasting snow to the side with the uncorked fury of a straight-pipe-screaming crotch-rocket engine has got to feel good after this much winter.
Suddenly, snow days are fun again.
