Michigan moxie.
The snow blowing granny taking social media by storm.
In Muskegon, Michigan, Old Man Winter may have met his match, an 82-year-old Marlene Downing, now known as the snow blowing granny.
The image of her taking on the heavy snow and freezing temperatures went viral this week.
I like being outside, and I like the snow.
She describes herself as a “tough old broad” who doesn’t need her grandchildren’s help.
Oh, I’m sure they would help if I asked.
My grandson has plowed it once.
But I’m fine, I like being out there.
And there’s one more reason why she likes to get behind that snow blower.
I think the engine sounds like my Harley, maybe.
That’s right. The snow blowing granny also owns a hog.
Riding in the sidecar is her greyhound, Pippa.
She just likes to ride.
