    Can you keep all the snow down there please.....Starting thursday morning 10 to 16 inches with 20mph winds. I'm sure it's going worse elsewhere. We just got 14/16 inches of wet stuff last week.

    I have to drive my wife about 130 miles tomorrow morning to an appointment. Could our timing be any worse?

    It's winter, it's suppose to snow! :)

    Fred61, I do feel bad for you though, that's never easy.

    That being said, I'm ready (I think), bring it on!

    My town is saying 12 to 18.

    I got my forks up on a trailer, put the spare bucket on top of my stacks.

    Plow is on the front of the kubota and the blower is on back. (man, I hate to take off that winch.. it's a PITA every time!)

    Sleds are gassed up, and moved to an area on the lawn where i don't need to plow.

    Snowmobile groomer got delivered to it's winter home this morning, after I used the rear hyrdros as a wrecker to fix a bridge.

    My drag is ready to hook up to the utility sled, and so is the firewood hauler sled.

    YA! You could say I'm anxious for SNOW!!!

    Wow...Your place sounds a bit like mine. I left the forks on the Kubota, figured if I put the bucket on that would chase the snow away. :) We use a plow truck though, the tractor is just cleaning up. There is nothing colder then moving snow on a tractor.

    My Wife's sled is ready to go, my skid is out getting some new bearings/wheels. Maybe this snow will give a kick in the paints to get that project finished.

    Our club sleds got new batteries today, drags are ready to roll if everything works out!

    I just had to ask my in laws who Teddy is. Sounds like he's really get wound up for snow!

    I'm far enough south that we get the Portland stations primary.

    Enjoy! We are just getting done with the back side of this storm. Had enough last week to hold us for a while I think. Some folks just got their power restored today after being out since last Thursday.
  16. Last night I checked the forecast, 3-5 then rain. Now they're saying my town will get 10-18"
    Once again they have proven it's not worth watching the forecast.

    plow truck has been down our dead end road twice leaving a big heap of snow at the start of our driveway, He plows the road from left to right, so no snow bank on the other side. So long as the snow stays dry, I can move it, but if it gets wet, I have to get some one who is in better shape than I am to come and dig it out.
