1. How much snow could a snow-blower blow while the wind is blowing the snow?
You got it. My retired neighbour is out in the snow and blowing snow (-15C with a wind chill that takes it to -28C), blowing snow off his sidewalk and blowing a path across his lawn from front to back -- with his snow-blower! What's up with that?! (By the way, he just did my front walk too! Crazy!)
2. "Undo". It's a word I've been pondering awhile now. I began to use it when I was playing computer 'Solitaire' -- and then realized that in real 'Solitaire', "undo" or "do over" is against the rules. If you blow it, you blow it. If you see a mistake after you've made it, too bad. You can't go back to correct it; you have to live with it and try to play the reat of the game, to win, "as is". So why does virtual 'Solitaire' lack the same discipline? I'm just asking...
