    Managed to blow first one, then the other angle cylinder hose last night. I think they were the original ones from '99. Knew I should have changed them, and knew I should have had spares, but what can you do. Found a friend with a heated garage at 3:00 am willing to help me, but his stock of hoses were all for his Fishers and nothing would fit. Had to just chain it straight to try and get though the night the hard way. Couldn't keep the chains on or the blade straight, but I got through somehow. Replaced both hoses this morning and went out to look at the jobs I did, surprisingly they all looked pretty darn good! Well, except for all the pink snow...

    $46 for both hoses at NAPA. Not bad.
