Looks like were being spared on this one near Worcester, MA. Had to clear snow only 4 times this winter with nothing big <4 inches. Ski mountains having a tough year up this way. More rain then snow.

I need seat time too.

The only storm we have had so far my lady got to plow while I was trying to fix the other tractor.

I can't hold it against her though, she encourages my tractor obsession. :)

The only snow we had here in Green Bay was on the 28th of December.We had 12 inches the bad part I had to go in for another Operation same operation again.(Not happy) I got out at 4;30 in the mourn and cleared out the drive so I could get out. In the afternoon I called my 83 year old neighbor to come out and plow out drive.Had 3 foot drift in front of garage.Good thing it was not very cold out.Good luck with your snow and don't send it here.

No action shots yet, they say another 8-12" till it is over.Had to go out and scrape the drifted snow off the wood shed fiberglass roof, It was bowing from the weight of the drifts.But views out the windows:

Looks like the weather people got the long range forecast correct this time. Have about 8-10" so far; it's hard to tell with the winds that are picking up this morning. I'll definitely have a lot of seat time tomorrow.

When I was blowing earlier in the day the piles were above the blower housing. Had to go in, then back up and hit it again.

If I was not asked by the wife to make a dog run, I would have waited until tomorrow.

I'll believe it when I see it.3 days can change a lot. Move the storm a bit to the west and the warm ocean water makes rain for me.

Lsst year it was 8 in, and did not go away til April, Another way to use a revitalizer?It is a PITA when I am legaly forced to take the runoff from the 5 upper properties (state law).I have 18" outside the garage door, at 8 PM, and it is still falling! We are currently under "Blizzard Warning" Allentown PA recorded 31.7" this storm (so far). sm00Yesterday was spent splitting burn lengths of firewood, to het my 4 bedroom home. I was two months behind in harvesting this year. Of course I have to tend the furnace every 4 hours. there goes all "red/orange ride time" and projects.sm02 Tonite calling for 15*, winds 12-25 mph, gusting! Snow to taper off by 5 AM.Greg, I was wondering when the "johney bucket" was going to get its annual rest!sm00

      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.
