Back in the shed again

Recommended Posts

jfrank1962

I put the snow thrower back in the shed only using it once for about 1 1/2" of snow. Last year I didn't even use it at all.

Not sure "weather" to be happy or sad ?

My blower comes off the same day the revitalizer goes on. I still have a lot of the white stuff on my lawn, and garden. I see temps moving up into the 50's this weekend.

Sadly, the nice JimH restoration, '64 Landlord that I bought from himlast year, never made it out of the barn this winter. I did not have enough snow at one time to use the blower.

Same here, Ray. Unless we get enough build-up from the state plow to block the end of the drive, we drive through it with our 4wd.

Marty, I would save it up, but we get rain or a warm spell and it all runs down the ditch. One of these years we will catch up with a big blizzard. 3 years ago I could not pile snow any higher with my Allis 917 and plow, so I was hauling it away with my FEL.?? That's the reason I got the blower tractor with the cab. Go figure.

I think I swept the steps off twice this winter... :o:D

Probably should've done it at least one more time, but I wasn't planning on going anywhere before it melted. Yep, I think I'm at about the right latitude...

Me too Jim,I got my cab 2 yrs ago, Only had 2 snowfalls with hardly enough snow to even use it...2" last & 4" once this yr.I screwed up my 1st chance by leaving the gas cap off while snowblowing and "watering my carb" dzCRAZY WINTERS or climate change??? I sometimes miss the normal 6"-12" lake effect snows from yrs past...My kids dont even know about getting "SNOWED-IN" and roughin it for a few days like us oldtimers did crk8 Them "Snow days" off school were great! ps...John the LL looks great and Jim yours too. that cab is a W-horse like mine dOd....maybe next year guys????? :D
