The last thing we want to think about here in Buffalo is winter's impending doom and gloom - especially considering we just packed away our bathing suits for the season.

Consider this, though: Just this past January, Buffalo received one of its highest amounts of snowfall ever.

Sure, winter weather in Buffalo can be unpredictable. Some years, it seems like we barely get anything - but in others, we get slammed with snow.

I think we all know it’s better to be safe than sorry. You don’t wanna be “that guy” who has to rely on your neighbor to plow you out of your driveway just to get to work. Or, even worse, the person stuck outside shoveling for hours while your neighbors look out their windows in pity while sipping on their hot chocolate.

When Should You Buy A Snowblower? How About Right Now

Like anything in high demand, you’ll want to get your hands on a snowblower way before you need one. Soon, everyone in Buffalo who doesn’t own a snowblower and wants one will be looking to buy one, sending prices skyrocketing and making it much more difficult to find one in stock.

Most snowblower manufacturers only make a certain amount of snowblowers per season (think about it, we don’t use snowblowers all year round, like a lawnmower), so once they’re gone, they’re gone.

Especially in 2022, thanks to inflation and supply-chain shortages, the time to buy a snowblower to use this winter is sooner rather than later.

Black Friday Could Be The Perfect Time To Buy A Snowblower

Ideally, if you’re in the market for a new snowblower, you’ll want to purchase one well before the snow starts to fall.

But if a new snowblower just isn’t in your budget right now, keep your eyes open for the deals and sales coming our way on Black Friday, Shop Local Saturday, or Cyber Monday to save big bucks.

Long story short, if you’re looking to buy a snowblower to use this winter, get one as soon as possible.

You don’t want to spend another potentially long Buffalo winter constantly shoveling and freezing your snow pants off.
