Default Radio goes off briefly when stacking snow

.

I plow my driveway in winter and notice that when I stack snow and slam
a bank of snow (with the normal amount of force it takes to pile the
snow) the radio cuts out momentarily. This happens half a dozen times
every time I plow snow.

It makes me wonder if that is the electrical system's step one for
preparing to deploy the air bags. I never plow faster than 10 mph, and I'm
not talking about hitting a curb, frozen ground, or hitting anything firm
enough to trip the blade.

That's an interesting question.

That's what I thought at first, so I switched over to FM and the radio
cut out on FM also for a brief time whenever I hit a pile of snow to
stack it.

Very strange......
