Yes it may be cold and it may be windy and it may be icy. But I get to use the tractor every time it snows! I may be cold and a bit sore when I go back inside the house, but I go in the house with a smile on my face!

Think the wife would be mad if I used the loader to pile up snow to make obscene snow sculptures? I hope all of you enjoy the winter weather a touch more because of the excuse to use the tractor.

 I love winter

We got about 5-6 inches during the night. I did 3 driveways this morning in town with my little walk behind. That gives me some excercise.

Still have 3 more to do out in the country. I'm behind and don't have my wind breaker cab nor rear blade on yet for the CUT. My backup is a lawn tractor with 45" dual stage and cab. That didn't want to start this am. Will maybe jump it.

Hoping the weather will warm up this weekend and get the windbreaker and rear blade on. It sure gets cold in the country when the wind blows.

It is enjoyable work, driving around, no matter what it is.

I hear ya Yoop. We got about 4" yesterday on top of the 1-2" from a few days earlier that I didn't clean up. I did get the rear blade on the CUT with the first snowfall but not without some issues that could have been avoided had I been a bit more pro-active.

I know what you mean by the wind. I'm in the country, on top of a hill with no trees big enough yet to block the wind. When it's bad enough, I wear a snowmobile helmet to keep the wind off my head and face. It works pretty good.

I don't love winter but I do love using my tractor. We were supposed to get 3-5" of snow but got freezing raid instead. I did go out in the middle of the nite and grade the subdivision road for the hell of it though and enjoyed it. It is roughed up enough to not be slippery now.

We got 10 inches in my area. I have a larger simplicity snowblower which does the driveway and heavy work for me. Then I have a smaller snowblower I can pick up and carry up the steps to our deck and poolyard. Then there is just plain shoveling. I am sore today from all the work involved in cleaning out my house and my Mother's house.

My wife is nuts. She has me make paths around the house, around the pool, shovel snow off roofs etc. She wants everything to be as open in the winter as in the summer. The good news is - while I was cleaning out my Mother's house she used the large snowblower - and when I came home she was exhausted.

She tells me how much work this is! Like I didn't know. So I tell her we should have a front blade for the JD4310 so at least the driveway cleanup would be quicker. And she agrees! So I will make a phone call today, but I expect the price will be too high. And I don't have the welding skills many of yuou have So Sad Oh Well!

Egads! $1400 for a boom mounted blade from the JD Dealer? I guess I will continue to use my Simplicity snow blower. No wonder so many folks make their own from a plow for a pickup!

Ncrunch, The big box stores sell a Snow Bear plow that will fit on any pick-up and even some mini-vans for $1100

Might be an option, I had one in Alaska and used the heck out of it.

Speaking of Alaska..... I talked to my brother there yesterday. It was 45 degrees with water running in the streets.

Thanks for the info DR, the snow bear plows do look interesting. But even $1100 is way to much for me to spend on my small driveway. I will continue to watch the local advertising for used equipment. My Simplicity snowblower actually has been doing a fabulous job for me for the past 15 years. I just have a very wide part of the driveway where it can't throw beyond the edges.

Warm weather in Alaska is always a scary notion. It makes you wonder what the future holds for us.

Actually there is only so much arctic air to go around.

If you guys back east are getting slammed, it is with the air mass the would normally reside over Alaska. When it moves south it is replaced by warm air from the Gulf of Alaska and Anchorage gets Kodiak's weather.

Next time you read about the citrus crop freezing in Florida, check the weather in Anchorage. It will be in the forties or warmer.

Artic air mass? Yeah, we had it squating over Iowa for a couple of weeks. It was only on Friday that our temp climbed into double digits. Quite a few mornings were in the -5 to -15 degree F range. I had delayed in spreading the insulation I bought. I had it in teh attic, I just didn't spread it since I hate that part of the job. So there I was, -10 outside and I'm in the attic spreading insulation... Doh!!
