My wife is off to work and my son needs a ride into work. 4 gallons of gas through both snowblowers in less than 24 hrs!!!! Haven't had a workout like that in years. Wayne, if you love snow......you'd love it up here!
I want it to snow more here. I don't want to live in UP.

I was thinking of going skiing again one of these days.

Where is Daniel?

Did I ever mention that I HATE WINTER!!!! Well, snow anyway!
very cool on the bee I was thinking of swapping back and forth the 25 from the Wonder to the bee to avoid the cost of another engine but I think I'm just going to strap the 30 on there.

Oh Hell NO never those kind of numbers i don't think LOL I do remember many storms where the blower wouldn't shoot the snow over the tops of the banks though. 2 years ago we got a good pounding last year not so much as an inch really, this year I've used the blower twice. I was talking about in the late 60's early 70's snow was way over my head even into the 80's but since then things have really lightened up allot. or I grew another foot lol

As far as I know you win all the prizes for snow accumulations

You can't hate snow,,, Your the SNOWMAN Its not allowed and most likely against the law.

Brathanke LOLOL I don't know if thats funny or scary we don't really know what powers our frozen friend in the North possesses, Is he really Ice fishing in those huts up there in desolation out on the frozen lakes or is he creating and perfecting spells to use on warmer lands. lol

Welcome home Dad How was the trip? and Chase?

Cool Brathanke I can't wait to see it

Well I started wrapping the fuse when I got home last night I had to go to My Bro in-laws and fix his pellet stove the auger wasn't working so after trying all the reset buttons and snap discs I decided to just remove it. Glad I get to experiment on someone elses as I know nothing about them, Anyway took it all apart and freed up some points and cleaned the whole thing down and shes working. It was his favorite Birthday gift of the day .... HEAT lol
