Ok so that song is stuck in my head since it played on the radio yesterday and it is kind of fitting though. 

 

I am not a fan of snow. Mainly because I can't stand driving in it and not because I am afraid to drive in it. I just can't stand the way everyone else drives in it. :D

 

But the reason for the posting is, even though I am not a fan of snow. I spent the time redoing the chain and sprocket on my snow blower for the Massey MF12G and ever since we haven't had any snow. <- That is one ironic part.

 

The second is even though I can't stand the snow now I want it to snow. At least a foot. :D

Snow always seems to come when you dont expect or want it!

Hope you get some instead of us so you can try the blower :D

I enjoy getting out there to move a bit of snow. At home that is, I hate it at work. It is a sinking feeling to get to the jobsite and half of the lumber can't be seen. Any how, the fun of doing snow plowing at home is worth the hassle at work. Hoping to get a few more snows yet this winter.

I don't like the snow either. However I would prefer the snow over ice anytime. Looking forward to the little bit of snow we have coming in the next couple of days so it will cover the ice and get some grip. I too looked at the chain and drive for the Jacobsen Super Chief blower after the last snow session. Good thing I did it needed a good adjustment and lubing, also needed new bolts in the covers and mounts. Thanks. Roger.

Head west and drive fast. 6" expected here through noon tomorrow. I won't get home until 6:30 pm. Help yourself to a beer when you're done.

We've had about 12" in the last 24 hrs., soft, fluffy stuff on top of the 24" we already had. The deer are starting to struggle, ( the few we have left), but the grouse love it. They dive bomb into it at night, and explode out again in the morning. Drives the dogs nuts, lol.

None here to send you George. It's going to rain again today and it's going to remain mild until next week. It'll probably snow in april right after you put the deck on that MF12G.

What is sad is that is the way it will end up working out. I am going to keep that snow blower mounted until I know it will not snow. Maybe even till May if I have to LOL.

You do realize that when we get the foot of snow, you won't be able to get the tractor started?

Yes something ironic is bound to happen. Whether it doesn't start, or I blow the PTO belt. Which reminds me I need to pick up a couple of  spares.

Get the spares and nothing will happen. Thanks to Murphy and his laws of probability.

Now I really ready for cold. We started a new house yesterday and we left today because the mud was too deep. Our forklift kept getting stuck. Right now comparing shoveling snow and wading thru mud, I would pick the snow real quick. I really want snow, I changed the weights around on the Ariens and was hoping for 8-12" of snow to try it out.

I like all the four seasons.  I like snow when it's supposed to be here.  Right now it's raining out and I wish it were snow.  Not January weather for my area.

 

I'm with you George.  I do not like how others drive in it.  They are so unprepared and unfocused.  

 

I like my four wheel drive, studded snow tires and weight in the box.  

 

I like using my snow blowers. I hope you get to use your freshly repaired snowblower soon George.  Let us know when you do
