Seat Time in the Snow

Postby VinceD » Wed Dec 11, 2013 10:41 pm

Had a chance yesterday to get a little seat time in the snow. After I cleaned the parking area behind the house I tackled the driveway. The Lowboy worked like a charm. Had a great time.

It looks like you were having too much fun, Vince. You got a pretty good amount of snow from that storm. We just got a dusting in KC.

Looks good Vince. The nice thing about a Cub is you can have seat time anytime.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

We had enough snow yesterday to "plow" the drive for the first time this season. My choice however is the Cadet and blower, it is much faster. Also if the wind is right or there is no wind I like to put it up in the air and watch it go. I keep the Cadet in a corner of the woodshop and I have to slog to the barn for the cub. It is just enough bigger that it won't fit in the corner. The blade is on the cub and I may use it at sometime. Keep on plowing. :D Vern

looks like you were enjoying yourself pushing the snow. I had to push snow about three times so far here in Tionesta PA.

Like Dennis, we only received a dusting (about 14 miles south of him). But your video is kinda makin' me want to see some measurable snowfall. :D

We had 8" of snow on top of two inches of sleet. Some of the snow has melted but it will take a while to get rid of the ice below. I tried to leave a little snow for traction. The rural roads (gravel) are still in bad shape. The local schools are closed again tomorrow (Friday). That will make 6 straight snow days.
