The snow blower and extension cord got in a fight...there was no winner. Yes, the cord was plugged into an exterior outlet and the insulation shredded off the wires. My bathroom and exterior GFI outlets are on the same 20A GFI circuit breaker. The breaker triped, however I am unable to reset it. Could the breaker have actually 'broke'? I purchased a new one, which to my surprise was quite expensive compared to a non-gfi breaker. I just want to make sure this was in fact the problem before going through the hassle of replacing it.

Appreciate any feedback.

Did you make sure you turned the breaker all the way to the off position so it clicks. Sometimes you have to put a decent amount of force but if it doesn't click it won't reset.

It is possible the breaker blew but it does not happen very often so I would first make sure the breaker is actually on.
