I enjoyed my day today, changed out the 40 tooth sprocket on my JD400 blower, excited for more snow.  I then thought, its 42 degrees right now and I see grass?????? Usually, we have 15-20" of snow to play in.  Not as much as the great lakes area, but the great salt lake produces some lake affects that can dump some decent snow totals.

 

Now, its 8 pm and im watch snow blowing videos on youtube.  

 

So what do you do if there is no snow when there should be?

 

I WANT SNOW! 

 

 

Heck, I was taking on the icy piles of snow, just to do something

I would love to. Not sure what's wrong with me. I giggle when we get an inch. We seem to be getting less and less snow each year.

We have just enough here to make the ground white. That suits me fine. So far this year I have only plowed once and that was just a couple of inches of slush that I wanted to remove before it froze. It does save folks a lot of money if they have to pay for snow removal. Our church pays 120$ each time the lot is plowed or salted/sanded. Cost us almost 4K$ last year. This year we are hoping for less!

We've had one 3" snow in December, enough to make sure the Ford blade works on the JD 40S:  HPIM1435.JPG

 

It worked fine, so enough snow this season!   :D

No snow? No problem.

(We were trying the blower out for the first time, he had grass in his mouth before this was over. Good training for the face full of snow he would get later.)

I did a similar type of test run in the sawdust beside my sawmill. Kind of a mistake to add

sawdust to the freshly greased chain. :wallbanging:

I am content to just set here and watch you guys plow snow.....or use the blower to move the leaves!!

 

Someone (on here maybe) used a snow blower to clear the driving path through their woods....leaves, nuts, branches..dirt...All kinds of stuff flying out the chute.

I guess the problem here is you really need to see snow. I would load myself up and go over to Buffalo NY, where there first big snow of the season was 8 feet. That will take the snow fun right out of you in a hurry. We went though more gas last yr moving snow than what it took to mow the yard the 2 yrs before that.
