After watching all the snow being blowed and pushed the last couple days I was having a seat time withdraw. Grass not grown enough to cut yet, so I looked at the dirt mounds left over from last fall, "looked like chia pet mounds" so i decided to level them off. It rained last night so it was rather muddy (Yes! it was FUN) and dulled that itch for a while. Now if the grass / clover would get a little taller I'll be good

Put the bumper on the Hemorrhoid then used it to push a derelict tractor out of the way and cleaned up the yard. Details and pics in Hat thread.

Just doing a little snow removal today and the wife snapped some pics. Got about 3 inches or so of wet heavy stuff. Blowing what the plow pushed up took some power.

I'm north of Kurtee a ways, so we got more snow. Colder up here, so less drizzle and rain mixed in. Got about 6 or 7 inches, real wet.

 

Kurtee's wife did not come over and take pics of me blowing snow with the Homelite.

I moved the Hemorrhoid and the DragonFly about 50 feet this morning. Does that count.

I ran BMP for about 30 minuets today because I found some white substance on the dip stick 2-1/4 inches above the fill line. I suspect it to ne either detergent foam or water condensation. BBQed while I waited.

I didn't plow snow with my tractor today.  With temps in the 60's last week, and the snow coming down in 35 degree weather, it just melted before anything could build up.  I've never seen anything like this.  It snowed pretty good for about 12 hours, yet due to melting I think we only a little over 2 inches.  The weather service reported just under .4 inches liquid, which should have translated to around 4-5 inches of snow.

 

And now the kids don't even want to go and play outside.  In fairness, everyone, including me, had strep throat last week, but everyone got diagnosed and put on antibiotics except my oldest boy, who somehow managed to remain healthy.  Got everyone suited up after breakfast, went out, and pulled one child around one circuit of the yard.  Then I fired up my tractor to keep pulling instead of wearing myself out.  Made exactly one circuit of the yard, and everyone had enough, wanted to go inside.

 

I'm gonna go whine about lack of seat time to someone.

Then I'm gonna take a test, and start studying another subject :(

Well, let's see. To set the stage, we got 6-8" of wet heavy lake effect snow last night.

 

Had a visitor stop in this morning to pick up an attachment that I was holding for him.  Said attachment was a front dethatcher for a Bolens EK.  Not a light rascal, and we needed to move it 50 yds or so to get it to his truck. So..I fired up the HDT1000 that has a Hang-N-Haul on the 3-pt, and used that for the major toting.

 

After he left, I fired up my newly purchased Bolens EK7 with a snowcaster on it to move some snow.  Poor little rascal just couldn't handle it.  Parrt of the problem is that the chute is a bit rusty, and that hindered the flow of the snow and it kept plugging up.

 

So I fell back to plan B, which was one of my G11's with a snowcaster.  It did the job, and I'm now back inside warming up with a cup of coffee or two.

 

Bear in mind that it was around 19-20* and all three (including the diesel HDT) fired with with no problem

That's always nice.
