The weather was bad here in Southern California last night. I woke up this morning and the truck yard was wet mud so I went back to sleep

I spent $900 and got a brand spanking new snowblower......and so far......nothing. Best $900 I ever spent and honestly if I never have to use the thing it would be wonderful!!!

 

Thank you!

Ditto, I haven't taken the deck of the tractor yet to install the plow frame.   I held off last year and never really needed it.   So, here's to trying it again.  I think we had one good snow, but it warmed up quick enough to not worry about plowing.

You have more snow than we do in the valleys in Montana bob. After last year you’re welcome to keep the snow to yourself.

Imagine the kids work fast to enjoy it before day breaks. 

It’s a slop-fest up here. Got 5” of snow last night and 8 hours of rain. Was pushing it with the 660 Griz in four lock and stalling out. Like pushing 500lbs of snowman corpses all balled up.

    Hey Bob,   That reminds me of a trip back in in late 80s.    Things were nasty so I anchored my super dog down at Boom Town in Verdie.   Excellent place back then , anyway ???

As for the weather in Eastern Pa.......We were shocked when we had sunglasses weather two days in a row. We were all worried about our mud getting dehydrated but did not have to wait long, rained its ass off the last 2 days and they are saying the S word for this coming Saturday night.

Keeping busy and getting used to things as they are. Spending a lot of time in my shop mostly. Odd life now.

You ice fish? Sakakawea? Devils? Missouri?

I recall they were running the Devils Lake Perch Express on Amtrak and Perch Patrol....till the tar sand boom took over.

Last time it snowed, back before Christmas, I had to clear the driveway with a round point shovel and a garden rake.

That was a lot of work, so I went over to the feed store and bought me a grain shovel for the next time!

That's too bad. It was a real top knoch place.      I remember the driver 's  showers, ( accessed past the fuel desk) were clesn , roomy and there was steam in the shower.       But I haven't been there in dam near 40 years.
