engine surging after warm

Had our first significant snow this weekend. Took the 1984 Toro 7/24 out to blow the drive and walk. Tempature was about 3 below. After about 25-30 minutes of blowing the engine started to surge. Checked gas, and there was plenty (1/5 full) in the tank to rule out gas stravation as the cause. I was able to finish the job but the surging would occur periodically, then back to normal. Any ideas as to what else may be the problem?

Thanks for the help!

With the tank being 1/5 full, when you were blowing, you may be putting the tank at an angle that would not let the carb have sufficient gas. I would fill the tank right up and I bet the surging will go away.

Thanks snowman

I hope your right. Sounds like the cheapest fix of all the possibilities that I can think of.
