We got 13" of snow Christmas night, that is unheard of in Arkansas, first time in more than 60 years that it snowed on Christmas. We were with out power for 3 days, with lows in the teens. I am glad we have a fire place. We still have alot on the ground.

Snowy One <name sake, controller of the snow> has hex'd this stuff off to distant lands from him self this year. In the 5 years here in Central PA, our snow often comes Feb and March.... Oh not this year, snowy has passed the buck to us.

Ya'll ever have one of those things you know you should just fix while the weather is nice, but its not "completely" broke and if you wiggle it or whack it with a hammer, it will work a while longer? Electric lift on the John Deere 110 Garden tractor, for the mower deck and the front blade.....

During the summer, it just mows the back yard, no need to change height often..... Snow Blade... and 10 inches of "Snowy's best"... You need to move it alot..... As my visiting Inlaws watched <with my kids> out the front window, watching me wiggle the switch, crack the side of the chassis where the solenoids are with a hammer, I came to understand that their visit here was to see their daughter and grand kids, as well as get a laugh off their half frozen son in law in the snow, on a 40 year old JD... <sigh>

2 1992 Ford Explorer Solenoids and the switch taken apart and gone through, its all good. Note.... Needed 2, parts store only shelf one.... Pep Boys $15 and change, Advanced Auto Parts, $22.50.... Same brand and Part number.

We are so far behind and there is no snowmobile traffic at all!! On the flip side.......the motels and hotels are complaining that they'll have to fold if the snow doesn't come soon. I'm thinking of buying some salt and spreading it on the trails to eliminate any chance of any type of snow-machine using it this winter.....they're so noisy!

Nice saw Waldo as well as weather reports

Snowman lol,salting trails to keep sleds off of the trails
Interesting idea to keep others away but beyond that point is virgin snow
Hehehe

I have video of where i go

Some guy has enough money to buy two sleds and invited me

I took video and pictures

We go,over 100 km away from other humans and then back small parking lot in middle,of nowhere

It's really cool to be in possible danger

I love snow

Looking for new places to fly FPV with snowmobiles with my buddy Jay (1 min 13 sec)

racing up and down the street in front of your house at all hours of the night.
O the joys of the snowmobile motor at 2 in the morning
Just think of it snowy,

Well howdy from the new frozen keister land

We got about 6" 2 days ago and a nice 8" last night so its not too bad as we were able to handle them individually but the temps with the high winds were around 0 today.

DOG I was right there with you today as it was a perfect temp for me to help my good cuz Tinmantim fix his plow as 2 bolts sheered off and we had to try and line up the cross member to get those bolts in, of course it wouldn't be right if we worked on his truck when it was warm and nice out, as you said it didn't really need Imediate attention over the warm days, so of course as we predicted we would be laying on the ice in 0 temps but we actually were successful in our quest in about 30 minutes time usually a project like that would take us hours as everything and anything goes wrong lol

then as long as I was in the area I had a call from my brother inlaw saying his washer wasn't getting water so after the truck repair I went there and got his washer working again.

Very productive day here as 1st thing this morning the wife decided it was tear down time of the Christmas stuff, so we got all that packed up and loaded into the van after clearing the driveway took down the tree and then had to blast through the unplowed road to the storage unit where all the Xmas stuff is being stored to keep our house clutter free for possible showings. What a day

David awesom vid and beautiful scenery on that sled ride very nice indeed. .

Snowman I love the snow so send all you want the saw is just a cheapo band saw but is a bandsaw and I couldn't be happier, its a Ryobi and the one I picked out when I went looking for one.

Tower wow that is much snow for you guys for sure must be exciting though

I doubt it. Give us some of yours. I am officially speaking for everyone in the Wichita, Ks. area. We will take 3-5" of your snow. Deliver in the next 2 days please. Thanks.

Happy Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanza/New Years/etc. everyone!

Great Vid kerwin Sounded a little windy and K49 did some very nice flat spins, Did that motor pop off in flight or on the landing I couldn't tell.

Tower Maybe exciting wasn't the best word to use for those people, But I Don't mind it so much when we lose power cause the only thing I can do when our power goes out is build planes under candlelight which is exciting and fun, and gives me a reason to spend hours in the basement but if you rely on power for heat then your in real trouble this time of the year for sure. and thats not exciting by anymeans. my wife always looks at me funny when we lose power as I get this little gleam in my eye as she knows the plane building will be going on in a few minutes after we get all the candles out and lit, she will usually go to bed which she loves napping or read a book, luckily we have 2 propane fire stoves, one in the basement and one on the main floor so at least we have heat.

Sorry RC lol hopefully you'll be burried in snow soon. that sounds weird to say to someone
