How will your neighbors ever survive without 6 loaves of bread and 82 rolls of toilet paper???

LOL.

Stay safe and warm. Be ready for the power outages.

That means charge up your phone so you don't miss anything on NEPA toothy

An added benefit to having a coal stove when there's a blizzard.

You can fill your pockets with coal so that when you go out to shovel all that snow ya don't blow away. Just try that with fire wood, or oil, or pro-pain ! :D

Selfishly i can't wait for that amount of snow to try out the loader for snow removal....

We didn't get enough to justify using it but i couldn't resist getting the 430 out to back drag the driveway. I found out i need a new block heater but the heat gun on the engine for a while and then directed into the air intake got it started pretty easily.

Just got the chains this week and even though they are pretty tight, they need some adjustment.

That does look nice.
Even with my chains and the rear weights the mule was worthless in snow until I loaded the
rear tires with windshield washer fluid so I could use the snowblower.

I have extra V bar chains to use if the winter finally shows up around and tries my patience.
Changing the 2 link chains on the mule to the V Bar two link snow and ice chains will not take long.

I started tractor shopping three weeks ago and I gave up when the local green dealers started tagging their series one machines with 15K price tags.

I guess I will be shopping out of state for a new mule as the prices are much more competitive.
My new to me Isuzu truck that was a repo from NJ came with 2,012 miles cost me 10K and change in 2010 and its been great ever since.

I loaded these rear tires with an antifreeze mix, I think it added about 70 lbs per tire can't remember for sure. It made a big difference helping balance the loader weight out front. If i find some wheel weights for a reasonable price I will grab them too. The stone driveway gives the chains something to bite into.
