Another week and no major snowstorms for Northern Michigan. I remember the good old days getting close to 200 inches of snow each winter . Here is my all-time favorite winter snowblowing picture. Do you have a all-time winter plowing picture?

Wow that is alot of snow!

I remember we had close to that amount of snow years ago.
The weather has been unbelievable here, in the 40's with no snow in sight!

You Guys in the northern LP and UP definitely do get the snow. I have seen trails like that and even tunnels in the Keweenaw between the houses and the street.

We have about three inches on the ground here in Gaylord and it looks like it will stay for a white Christmas. Were now 45 inches below a normal winter snowfall compared to last year. We live in a tourist town and not one snowmobiler yet this winter . A lot of garden tractors not getting used and a lot of depressed snowplow drivers who count on that income. But the positive is many people are not paying the snowplow man and they are saving money.

Don...is that an Erskine Mfg. blower on that tractor? Looks like it from here. If it IS...my father designed/built the proto types. Used to go back to work with him in the evenings and be in awe, of ALL THE TOOLS and machines.

Don, I can't imagine that much snow and only having a shovel, sure makes life a lot easier with the right tools.

jeesh, that's a bunch of snow! My Bolens is waiting patiently in the garage for some snow. This is the first year I have had a snowblower on a tractor. I've been using a snow blade on a Sears Suburban for the past several years. sorry, no pics!

Yes it is a 84 " Erskine and I modified the end of the chute by extending it and added a hydraulic cylinder to it to have more control of the discharge. It is a heavy duty snowblower and still going strong after 11 years of commercial use.

Here is a picture of me moving the Erskine snowblower to hook it to the JD5400 this fall. I try to keep everything painted up to minimize rust. new pictures 188.jpg
