As I sit here typing this its 24 degrees and snowing here :wallbanging:

Winter just wont go away.  I've got to the point where I'm sick of having to work with the garage door closed all the time and the heat going full blast! I've got a Ride-a-Matic to restore and my 1050 needs a regulator replacement but cant bring myself to work on anything in a confined space anymore with no sun. I cant wait until this weather breaks so I can roll my machines out and work in the driveway again!

 

I was rolling the lawn last year April 14th and it doesn't look like the snow will even melt by that time this year :wtf:

Still have 4 foot of snow in front of the barn. I've been wanting to work on my GT 17 and try to get it running but to darn cold!

although starting April first it's supposed to be nice.

Everything counts for something! I'm in NorthWest Oklahoma.  Things are really greening up.  Peach trees are blooming.

I guess I'm focusing on all the guys who generally get decent snowfalls each year.

North east Canada count in , if so I am under 5 to 6 feet of snow, but it's melting as temperatures rise above freezing mark, but not by much.
I was plowing my garden two years ago on April first and had potatoes planted by the third week of April that year. I doubt I will be plowing before middle of May this year. Noel

It was 71f yesterday for a bit.Finished rewiring the old sears and took it up in the trail and pulled firewood logs down to the house.Today it got down to 31f and we got some snow flurries.

 

Weather is driving me nuts.Cold as heck then warm enough for t shirts then cold and snowing the next day.
