Well we  got enough snow to warrant firing up the Wheel Horse. The had to thaw out the throttle and choke cable but with a little love the old 1267 finally fired up. the old girl worked like a champ. Excuse my giddiness but this is the first time I got to push snow with it. It pushed the apron at the fire dept. with ease. Had to get some gas so I drove it to the gas station and filled it up. The lady inside didn't even bat an eye with a GT at the pumps. I love living in a small town. Drove it home and fit a buddies drive on the way then did mine. By now the cold was letting me know about it and I needed to get in the house and get Isabella bundled up so she could get some play time in the snow. Here's a few pics. I love the one at the pumps.

Excellent. Dad and I used to take the Farmall Cub to the gas station up the street years ago. Now a days with all the oil and gas trucks going through this small town I hate to even take my pickup out on the main drag in front of my house... Let alone any size tractor.

I take my ferguson tractor to the gas station and some times go thru the drive thru for coffee. I can sneak up to the station thru a subdivision. Don't have to go on the highway. You get a lot of looks at the gas pump, but the drive thru Is much more fun.

WE got 1" up in Northern IN, might just shovel walk a bit and let rest stay as is. Supposed to WARM up in upper 20's and maybe more after, so it won't last. I adjusted my brush on PK, maybe should see if better now, that would be about it.

We got about 4" and since I had to get the tractor up to the road to load today I went ahead and bladed the drive out.  Rest of it will stay till the old lady that put it there gets tired of it.

We're getting plowable snow this weekend hopefully. Unfortunately I have the tractor setup with a blower, the tractor with the plow isn't ready yet. I'd like to have both to cover all the bases.

The WH did a fine job!

I too clean the apron at the firehouse. The town does the street, but leaves a mound 2 to 3 foot high, so I move it!

I retired from the VFD a couple of years ago with 31 years!

Nice job.

We got about 2" yesterday. Since school got cancelled, I told him it better be cleaned, he doesn't mind playing on the tractor.

Of course when he was done, he had to take his new to him Jeep out and play.
