Winter?

Recommended Posts

Well the 6216 tractor w/snowthrower is ready to go for winter. Just have to lubricate, oil change and throw on the chains this weekend. But there is no sign of old man winter here in the northeast. Any snow and seat time for the members out there in the midwest or northwest. Any pics from this year? It will be chilly this weekend but right back up into the 50's for XMAS.

No your not, Just watching Lansing news say there are accidents every where and yes we will be careful, thanks for the concern.

We decided to take the back roads to avoid accidents got to Pickney and roads were complete sheet of ice. Wife put truck sideways once and we decided it was not worth the risk of getting hurt or wrecking truck so decided to come home and try later Saturday.

We're finally consistently below freezing up here. Dipping down in the negatives at night. Had about 6 inches of snowfall this past Wednesday, but that's about it. My 6212.5 and 2210 both got to stretch their legs.

id="quote">Global warming is BS. My science teacher ( a real scientist with his doctrine who's retired from the scientist job now teaches. He's 67) say the earth has natural dips and rises in the temperature. Good new for you guys... Run your engines all you want. He says that "to much carbon in the air is also BS. It's all in check with the plants. Less carbon = less food for the plants. Every thing is in check. Besides, I'm glad there's no snow... I not a huge fan of it. I would rather have nice 50f weather.

We could start a whole big discussion on "Climate Change" in the Back Room Lounge like we did a few years ago.

But I will take some of the blame. I was well prepared for snow early this year...and as you know "if you are prepared it will not happen" ;)

No such thing as winter here in the eastern US; have set high temp records on several days and got very close on many other days.

Hopefully we won't "pay" with a cold spring followed by an immediate jump to record temperature setting late spring/summer.

We went for a ride Saturday morning looking for some snow and didn't see anything to get excited about. Left Traverse City around 730 am and headed for Gaylord, up to the Soo over to Whitefish point and back to Traverse. The most snow was between Paradise and Newberry, about 6-8 inches was all, and that was total snow on the ground not new snowfall.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
