Hope it is drier where you are - going to take a few days for all the rain we got to disappear.  Thinking about building a Bolens mini boat.

Now that's something I have not heard around here in awhile "snow tires"  I remember when that was a semi annual thing but them on in late fall and remove them in the spring. Use to buy recapped snow tires back then say 50 years or so ago

 

Much to wet here also but its getting better do see areas of grass greening

Those snow tires around here were called, ground grips, at times.

Gunna rain here for the next week. Planting season will be two to three weeks away yet.

Success the plow is off and the landscape attached and it worked great I made this last winter and I really like it if I had known how handy and well they work I'd have had one years ago

I don't think I ever saw a Bolens that floats.

They tried it with the Penguin but apparently it was not a watertight success.

 

If at first you don't succeed try, try again - otherwise Edison might never have created a light bulb that worked.

 

And you and I might have never been born.

You first have to determine if there is a burning need for such an animal.

Right now Mother Nature has turned off her tear tap but it never hurts to be prepared as some day she may be really sad and cry for weeks.

Another Ontarian here.  We have been under water for what seems a week with more to come!  Do you guys think it would be alright to spread fertilizer if the rain brakes even if it will rain a bit more in the next few days before the sun and heat come mid next week?  I should also mention there is also coated grass seed in this fertilizer I have

Dry enough this morning to run the aerator over the lawn and spread some fertilizer. It's only a spike aerator, but chews the turf up a bit. It started raining again around noon which should wash the fertilizer in nicely.

Things are looking good so I removed the winter cab tire chains and snowblower from the Husqvana and installed the deck and got the 1218 Power King with bagger out to the house to hopefully clean up the lawn this coming week
