 So much for the "big" one

Weather people had us all believing it would be the big one. I think we got 5" give or take a centimeter or two. For three days they been telling us, 10 - 12" in our area. Oh well, time to go plow the driveway as some here have to head to work. I sure miss those large storms we use to get. Seems now, a lot more of these 4 -5 inchers instead of the 18 and 20 that use to come. Haven't checked thenews I wwould gueess tht north of me and up in Maine probably got a lot more than us.

We got about 8" here in southeast Vermont. Enough to give my new chains a good workout, very nice to hit the throttle and know I'm gonna move, and even nicer to not sweat bullets near some of the dropoffs on my driveway.

The 1967-vintage Skidoo suit I got on eBay worked super, as well. First time I've come in from snowblowing and been nice and dry and toasty -- best $30 I've spent in a long time.

Mud season? It's not normal to have mud 365 days a year?

Ken,
Around here the mud hibernates in the winter. Wakes up mean and ornery with the warmer weather!
Really though, mud season is that time in the early spring when you NEVER have to ask yourself "Will I get stuck?"

How do you like your R1's versus the R4's?

By not asking yourself if you'll get stuck are you saying that you KNOW you'll get stuck? Laughing out loud

I really like the R1s. They don't plug up like the R4s and in mud they largely clean themselves, unlike the R4s which stay plugged once they got plugged. Only downside so far is the rougher ride on hard surfaces. The R1s leave tracks but I don't care, I don't have a lawn to worry about (yet anyway).

Around here the mud season is the time between snow and ice and black flies when most outside activity shuts down. When I realize that it's coming it's me that wakes up mean and ornery.

I save my spring tractor work for awhile not only because I'll get stuck. Later means that I may be breathing diesel exhaust but at least it keeps the black flies down so I can be outside without a slather of DEET or turning into a purple bloody pulp.

Personally, I'm looking forward to 'no-see-um' season this year.

In fact I already informed the 'head of domestic affairs' that I was taking the 'Bota up to the lake to do a bunch of re-grading and touchups on a (relatively) new driveway that could use a little attention from the box-blade.

I can think of no better revenge for those little buggers that annoyed me for so many years than watching them beat their heads on all that glass in the cab trying to get to me...

Besides, any excuse for seat time is a good thing.

Best of luck.
