This is the second piece about flamethrowers this week. Did Elon tap into a trend?

WRIC ABC 8News:

Nathanael Caplinger decided to leave his shovel in the garage, and use his flamethrower to melt the snow instead.

Caplinger told ABC affiliate WSET that he hates shoveling snow. So, after reading an ad in a magazine about a blowtorch, which advertised its usefulness in clearing snow, he decided to try it out.

He bought one after researching the state and local laws and consulting with local officials.
