I really dont like snow at all but you have to take the bad with the good. I have one of the 74 cubs ready to go , plow greased up and tank gassed up , heavy water proof cattle coat and hat laying out with boots and gloves , will start pushing in the morning as to keep up with the accumulation. Hopefully the weather gods will spare us the heavy stuff. Up to 16 inches are called for by some reports, all are calling for 8 or more inches.

OH MY!!! What a different look for the Waller! I'm with you, Boss. I don't quite see the fun in freezing my arse off plowing snow. Sure am glad I made it south without confronting the wrath of PAX!! Hope it goes smoothly and the snow stops early!

1 to 3 inches, changing to rain, when it gets here, according to the forecasters. We'll see. I've plowed a lot of "partly cloudy", over the years, sometimes as much as 6 inches of it!

looks like New England, Boss. Only here we are somewhat more prepared for it. And, we get comic relief from all of the yuppies trying to get home during 'rush' hour. snow and 300 HP sports cars with 'all-season' summer tires makes a bad combination. :lol:

We're due for 12" or so of the white stuff here in Western Massachusetts, but my Cubbie is sitting this one out, pending some further rehab work when warmer weather hits. I am thinking about getting a non-IHC blade, that I can rig up with a floating lift and no down pressure, attached via a long frame to the back final drive housings. So maybe next winter!
