Cheney Tire has sold it's small engine repair business to a CNY firm but no changes are expected as the same five people will work there. The annual call to Cheney's for maintenance on the mid 90s Simplicity snow blower is an October tradition. They come and pick it up, and it comes back ready for winter.
This winter was easy on the old girl, but it still runs well. That was nice as while the machine is ready to go, I find using it less fun every year.
