    Official, ongoing weather thread!

    We're supposed to get anywhere from 4"-8" of the white shit. Just what I need.... more work to do. Anyone else getting snow?

      Just a couple inches Saturday night but the way the weather folks have "screwed the pooch" with their forecast, who knows what we'll get.

                    Well, so far we've probably got about 3". At least out here in the middle of nowhere, lol. My friend who owns a bunch of apartments called and said not to worry about clearing them off, so I guess I'm off the hook for today. More coming tonight though..... Might end up being a sloppy mess. I think there is some rain forecasted on top of the snow, then more snow. Maybe some ice. Oh well. I've still got a few things to do to the tractors to make them "ready". Have to put chains on and swap a set of tires. I got a flat on one of my fluid filled tires and it needs a new tube. So, I'm just going to swap it out with some air filled lugs until I can get a tube. May clear my grandparents drive, if they think it needs done. We haven't had snow in a couple years, but 3" is no big deal, lol. We've lived through a lot worse. Don't know why we don't seem to get snow like we did years ago. Comes in spurts now. Used to we ALWAYS got snow. It was a rare mild winter if we didn't. Funny how weather patterns change.

                        We got about 3" here. It was pretty heavy and sticky, though. I got to try out my new blade setup on the 1641 yesterday and it pushed like a champ. I was pretty happy!

                        Well, we got 3"-4" here. Then it started raining in the afternoon. Now most of it is gone. It was snowing again a little big ago though.

                        I did however, get two tractors ready (finally) to push snow.... kind of. The Deere needs a set of chains (that's why I put up a wanted ad). And I have the blade out for the 1050, but didn't mount it up. I have two ready, and it will just be the backup, so I'm not too concerned. I like to push snow with hydro tractors. But I like backup, or if I have more help (operators, like my wife or one of the kids), I have more than one ready to run.

                        Here's the two:
                        Sorry for the poor pic of the Deere. Not enough room to get a good pic without opening the door, lol.
