...One thing for sure, the neighbors that can't seem to talk to me or wave Hi to me during the year, will all of a sudden want to be new friends as soon as I start up the tractor...

 One thing for sure, the neighbors that can't seem to talk to me or wave Hi to me during the year, will all of a sudden want to be new friends as soon as I start up the tractor. I don't like to see people struggle, but my cycle will not change, as I take care of my elderly neighbors first, then our property, and then if I'm still warm enough, I help anybody else that needs or wants the help. 

 

That is pretty much my philosophy also.  Sometimes though i feel like the little red hen!    Rick

They say the cold came early this year, i say typical Mass weather, cold most of the time.

They say the snow came early this year, i saw 3 feet on one day at one time or another.

Calling for 8 to 10 inches of heavy stuff tomorrow, off i go yet again to move it out of the way for some money.

 

Stay safe out there guys, you guys in the south, be careful and drive safe.

Yes, and those fleas he earned from all that warm weather bragging are gonna be burrowing deep!   :smilewink:

 

 

I would never wish a nasty snow storm on anyone, BUT after that video, I sure would

have to laugh if Uncle found enough snow on his porch in the morning, that he

couldn't get out the door, and that he was out of coffee. :rolling:  :rolling:

Would sure make for some interesting posts. :D  :D :D

Looks like this is developing into more of a major snow event than I had originally anticipated.  Current estimates at the airport are 6 inches, I'd say local here is anywhere from 4 to 6.  They warn us about how much we will get and so often little comes of it.  Now we just need it to stay cold long enough for it to not turn into a freezing rain event and we'll be good.   School is canceled for tomorrow.  

 

The bad news is I can't get my 12G to crank.  I think partly its a low battery issue, but I'm thinking that having a thick oil is not helping at these temps either.  I'll have to move my blade from the 12G to the hydro, which I started and put chains on this evening so I could tow the kids around the yard.

Last time I saw grass, was in Uncle Willie's video.

Is he going to get snowed on?

 

 

Yes, and those fleas he earned from all that warm weather bragging are gonna be burrowing deep!   :smilewink:

But it will be 40 tomorrow. HEHEHEHE

I brought home one of these puppies home this evening since nothing I have operable is equipped with a snow blower.  How does it always work out that no matter who much you buy and repair you never have the right thing when you need it?

That machine ought to dig me out.  I might end up helping open our road, too.  We have probably 2 inches high and rising.

I'll sell you one, Daniel.  Come on up and we'll get the paper work settled.  I know tracks would work wonders around the family dairy.  We still clean the holding pens and barnyard with a loader and a tire scraper, we have enough inequality in the ground that you always spin.

I know, but I couldn't grab it, Cat had already taken it home.

I do too.  That way I can run my old Farmall, too, and get its due time in.  :D

 

Don't say bad words like "two inches more" around here, that isn't nice.
