The Michigan Snow-Blowing Grandma

Last week, 82-year-old Marlene Downing was photographed using a snowblower to clear her lawn in Muskegon, Michigan. Those photos quickly went viral, and landed Downing on several local and national newscasts.

She told ABC-7, "I just don't need any help. I got this big machine; it works great." She said her grandson would probably help her if she asked, but that request won't be coming anytime soon. "I like being out there," says Downing, a North Dakota native who describes herself as a "tough old broad." She adds that the engine of her snowblower "sound like my Harley."
