I was out trying to clear the snow from our sidewalks this evening when I noticed the handle on our snow-blower felt a little loose. Then there was a sound like the snow-blower had run over something metal. I looked down and noticed one of the knobs that should have been holding the handle onto the snow-blower was sitting in the snow. I made a quick jaunt down to our local Home Depot.
I walked into the store, found an employee and explained what happened. He told me they don’t carry snow-blower specific parts but they’d probably have something that would work. He took me over to their nuts & bolts, dug in a bin for 30 seconds and handed me the perfect part to fix my snow-blower. I was back on my way home in three minutes; now that’s service! 🙂
