Friday Fictioneers: The makeshift plow

First let me explain something. Here in Newfoundland, we are different; but in an honest, innocent way.

While passing through a small west coast community on a snowy morning, we passed people out shoveling, scooping, and even blowing snow…and then there was this guy.

There it was, a home made snow plow. Using a sheet of plywood and a few 2×4’s, the guy had fabricated his own snow plow, and nailed it to the bumper of his car.

We had to see this. I pulled my truck to the side of the road and laughed as the plywood plow burst into splinters.

This true story is my entry into this week’s Friday Fictioneers.

  1. Anything nailed to a bumper is going to go askew fast. Still, you have to admire his determination to get the job done faster (even if it did take hims ll day).

    Nice story and a true one to boot. I love it.
