We haven't had any more snow since our overnight blizzard Christmas night, but the problem is that it's still there. Hardly any has melted. I haven't had to use the MF12G since so no real tractor work. I have started rebuilding the NP 205 transfer case and TH 350 adapter for my 1970 GMC Jimmy. Got a bearing and a couple gaskets and seals coming yet.

Been working on fire wood off and on for next year's burn, had nearly 6 cord rough cut delivered some 3' in diameter. I go out everyday and do a little some days just cut, others split and stack. I saw a good deal $550.00 for the wood and jumped on it. My BIL and me split the work and the wood. I don't mind doing the job it gives one a sense of satisfaction watching the enormous pile dwindle. The 1964 simplicity landlord and cart have gotten a workout.

It appears that you folks in the Buffalo - Watertown area aren't going to be bored anymore. 1 - 2 feet of white goodness coming!

Update on Atlanta area... FINALLY had a dry Saturday and weather-guessers forcast same thru Tuesday, I won't hold my breath I cut down a few trees in backyard, mostly pine. Starter on 400 with Buford Bucket is beginning to act up. Of course I discovered this when I needed it to pile logs for burning It's not retracting all the way. Working for now but I need to finish wife's trike so it can go in shop and get motor pulled. I have a repower 23hp from Eng Warehouse so the K582 can be pulled and rebuilt as a standby for the other 2 400's. I know, will take picts in morning while having coffee and post.......

Always something to do in garage...
