82-year-old grandma wows the internet with snowblowing in freezing temps

“An 82-year-old Michigan grandmother caused quite an internet sensation after a photo of her snowblowing her driveway went viral.

A reporter at WZZM-TV posted a photo of Marlen Downing snowblowing her driveway and sidewalks and those of her neighbors in below-zero temperatures.

Downing told WZZM that she “was waiting for this snow” because it reminded her of growing up in Harvey, North Dakota. She said she looks forward to winter and the snowfall.

“They think I’m crazy,” she said of her children and grandchildren, who have warned her to stay inside and stop using the snowblower.”

Now that is definitely not something you usually see. According to the article, she also likes to ride her motorcycle in the summer. Who says you need to act your age when you’re older??

Judging from the photo, it looks like her snowblower is operating in good condition. With winter not yet over, this important tool can save a lot of time and energy. Don’t spend any more time than necessary in the cold! If your snowblower isn’t working, call Robbinsdale Marine at 763-533-0300 to schedule an appointment.
