I got the snow blades today and started gathering steel and planing, a lot of my metal stock is still buried and encased in ice so i still have to wait.

the last few days we lost a lot of snow ...its mostly gone now except where it drifts in, fence rows and terraces .  we are almost ready for a good warm spring rain.  that will jump start everything.

Ready to take the blower off the 126 and get it ready to plow, but will keep the blade and chains on the 782D just in case.

I am so ready to swap the blade for the tiller. Now they are saying chance of snow next week. And the garden is one soggy mess right now. I think it will be late till we can get started this year.

I gotta say it may still be a bit early, if your in OH, PA or east.

With the cold air coming this week, and any gulf moisture that may

come up, there's a good chance for snow.

I just can't understand you guys living up north with snow on for such long periods of time. I would go crazy.

 

Just plowed my garden yesterday (T-shirt weather), then tested my rear pto running my tiller a few passes......snowing tonight!  :wallbanging:   Dang flip-flop weather!

I can't wait for FLIP-FLOP weather!!! Come 80's and 90's!!!

Been cold here in central PA.  Snow is mostly gone.  Been a tough winter.  Hope I find a global warming advocate so I can gently put their comments up their exhaust pipe.
