Broke my shovel!

OK, now I know I've had it with February.  I broke my favorite shovel. 

Sure, I snowthrow when I can, but when it's just that inch or two, or maybe it's time to scrape off some packed down snow, this baby could cut it. Big, strong, kinda heavy, but it could gnaw through the nastiest chowder.  My wife never used it because it was too heavy, so it was all mine!  Sure enough, snapped the handle right down at the base where it attaches to the big, heavy pusher blade.  It lived a good life and tossed a few zillion pounds of snow through many a winter. Great time to replace a shovel, at the end of a relentless month of snow.  Wish me luck, or some advice on who has these type of shovels anymore!
