 Thanks to Murphy and his laws of probability.

Because of Mr. Murphy it is only logical for me to have multipe GT's....For example, everybody should have more than one plow set-up; One won't start, second unit will break, the third one gets to finish the job. Tillers, grass cutters, plows, whatever :thumbs:

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

George, are you getting your wish over in York? We have about 5" now and still snowing. I think half the traffic is snowmobiles tonight. I am content to stay home and watch the wood fire. :D  I got a bit of seat time. :dancingbanana:  It felt like the wind came straight from Will's house though.

We got close to my wish. I think we ended up with about 6" total. Not as much as I thought we were going to get with the storm. I did at least get to use the blower though and it did a great job. As long as I kept it fed it was throwing the snow 25' to 30' out. The drum ran really nice and quiet too. 

 

The wind was definitely cold. When I would catch it the wrong way and snow from the chute would blow back it was frozen on my face and took forever to melt. I had a good time. Even though I have the tires liquid filled and one set of Massey weights on it, it needs more weight with that blower hanging off the front. Going to put the sleeve hitch back on and see about hanging some weight from it and I also have another set Massey wheel weights to put on.

Skip the bean sprout and kale salad and tofu burger,  and have a cheeseburger with some cheesy hashbrowns. You'll have that rear planted in no time.

The whole time I was out there I was thinking I should be taking video because I know better but with the way the wind was blowing I would have had the camera soaked in water.
