You should wait on that - you know what happens when you're actually prepared - I just usually take a sidewards glance @ the equipment to see if everything is there - its just like the generator - once you start it, the power comes back on. :roll: don't jinx us

I will take a walk around the property to remove any 'blower fodder & make it a point to get some gas.

Yeah, you are right! I was walking the property today, making sure all bicycles and remote toys were stowed and out of way. Thats the kids job, but you just gotta make sure anyway :shock:

Looking at the 5-day ..... looks like the Cape & islands are gonna get pounded :lol: (sorry capecoaler! :D ) but my area looks like next to nothing from this.

Of course, this is New England we're talkin' about here ... it could change 5 minutes before it hits ... & I'll end up with 5 feet! :o

I figured it would change! :o

I usually set my Polaris up before the first storm of the year, then just leave it parked right in front of the garage door, ready for action. Although I could use a new wear bar on the plow ....

I say bring it! 8-)

I think you guys have this one covered, you can have it! Many times they will curl in and catch us here on the tip of Maine but I don't need it. Its bad enough that it has been 0 degrees out the last 3 mornings. :shock:

Sounds like a lot of work.

I have to work in NYC Sunday morning so I made reservations for Saturday night instead of worrying about the snowblower. I guess I'll deal with that Sunday afternoon when I get home.

We bougth a house in March of last year and got a snowblower with it but the engine is bad and it can't be but 3 or 4 yrs old. I was thinking about getting a new engine for it. I guess I was thinking to long. :cry: Looks like I'm shoveling! :shock:
