artic blast aluminum jsergIN 1925, a builder constructed a row of attached brick homes on farmland outside Philadelphia, across from a new high school.  In time, sidewalks were added.  Travel forward to the year 2014.  I am standing on the same sidewalk, in front of my home, contemplating the approaching nor’easter.  10″ of snow is due to begin falling at midnight.  My neighbor’s shovel, borrowed by me since time immemorial, was stolen off his front porch a week ago.  A hanging crime in these parts.

Selected was a mid-level product, suitable for home owners and perhaps even contractors.  18″ wide, all aluminum, heavy-duty riveted steel wear strip.  Roomy handle for gloved hands.  About $20 at The Home Depot.
