In real life I'd like a Low Boy!

6" down and probably 6" more to go. The 682 W/54" Blade is up to the task!

Fred you probably remember me writing about my drafty sunroom ... Well that hasn't changed . I got so tired of feeling the dang cold draft blowing in that I cranked up the glenwood to blast mode and pulled the curtains up. All the air is the same now and I don't feel a stupid draft . Oh well I will just burn a little more coal.

It's likely he does that to keep the front end from sliding when pushing with the blade angled. I should have had 4 wheel chains on my truck for this snow,i have no chains on it tho. I got stuck too many times today pushing this 30"+,had to shovel the truck out one time.

It keeps the tractor from sliding sideways when pushing snow.

I can't believe everyone got hit but us! Craziness. I usually never get my way! :lol: Even a few towns south of here got 6". We barely got an inch.

We got a Vulva too! :D My first foreign car foray. VERY happy with it.

I would have gladly shared this snow with you who feel cheated. I would also have been very glad to have left you had the work associated with it. 2 days blown on moving snow,plowing ,shoveling, blowing it,......enough !!!! A real snow storm,a record setting snowstorm . We are wore out . :surrender:

Yeah, that was us last year ... and the 2 years before that. We got hit every weekend in '11, then last season we got hit 3 days in a row in one week! I'm not missing it one bit. Had to shovel the barn roof about 30 times last year at an hour and a half at a whack. Sucked! Plus the plow broke, the ATV pushing the plow broke, and so did my snowblower. A fun one last year, lemme tell ya! :x
