    You still have another chance this weekend for snow, another low forming coming up the east coast. I will have about 360 extra pounds in the back of the Ford for this one.

    Possibly but may be rain again here.. New snowblower needs to be tested.. Paid $100.00 for it :) Older one but hardly used..
    MTD
    8HPTecumseh (not OHV)
    26" wide
    12" cut
    halogen headlight :)

    I need to sell my Ariens now and hope to get $250.00.. That one is 7.5HP(OHV engine) 24", 10" cut, runs great and better built than the MTD. Paid $350.00 used a few years ago but no snow last year only worked hard 1 year..

    Both have electric start but have never tried it.. They both start on one pull..

    NOAA is saying we received 15.2, looks like we might be in for the old fashion winter.

    So far only 5-6 inches here . . . maybe it's just a lull . . . I certainly hope so . . . otherwise all that stocking up on the batteries, beer and bleach will be for naught.

    A storage shed is first on the list, might make half of it for wood. I'm thinking we just need the wood side big enough for 3 cord for our better wood for the colder months.

    The storm coming from the midwest, does that have a chance to hit you?

    I hear you just went through this today and it wasn't fun!

    YUCK! hoping for your sake they are wrong. I hope we get more snow, and lots of it. Although I didn't get a chance to cut today, I did take a ride on the sled this evening to open up the drifted shut trails and found several more blowdowns and snags. I will have to start thinking about getting wood for maple syrup production here real soon......I'll be tapping the maple trees in around 6 weeks or so and I don't want to use my heating wood to fire the evaporator.....

    Hoping for snow on the ground right through the end of Feb.....if we're lucky...

    Should get a break coming up, the West Coast is getting a dry out, drain off spell. There are a couple nasty looking things in the Western Pacific, but they are over a week away.
