"When you're stupid, you're stupid for a lonnnnng time"


Years and years ago I went to a friends house to help him burn his field. He thought tossing tuna fish cans of gas to spread the fire while holding a gallon gas can in his other hand was a smart thing to do. He said "I'm real careful to make sure the liquid is disconnected from the tuna can before it hits the flames". I told him he was forgetting about the fumes and I was leaving if he didn't stop, that I wasn't going to watch a friend get burned. He started setting the gallon can aside, but he did let me leave. Before I was out of his yard he came to me with singed arms, apologized, and ya know, here it is 20 years later & he still mentions how I saved his life.

Kerosene, OK, gasoline, NO!

Staying on subject.... it takes way more heat than you think to melt snow. Just shovel it.

So after doing research here is what I ended up getting. It can be used to kill weeds and melt ice.

I am putting it together this afternoon and giving it a try a little later. I got the $208.00 kit with the dolly.
