Well this season we got the 30" snowfall i been hoping for, was it fun, not really but after it was plowed i was happy.

Remember the year we had snow every three to four days non stop till spring. This was the first year i had the plow on my jeep cj7 and on the wenesday between christmas and new years i just opened up the garage door after i finished welding the brackets on the snowplow. From that wenesday on we had snow. This year seems to be one of those years. My jeep tractor developed an oil leak wether its the head gasket or a gasket leaking i can't touch it till spring just incase i open a can of worms and then it will sit. Its still running but i check the oil level often. My int154 needs a clutch and the driveshaft splines are worn but its still pushing snow ok. I have all the parts to repair it too i'm just waiting for the warmth to do it. I just wasn't ready this season the way i usually am.
Next year i hope the fcub will be up and running with the snowplow along with my 154 w/FEL too. Its fun to plow snow with different tractors.

I also need to figure out how to speed up my cub cadet with the single stage snow thrower. It just throws the snow into the next path. I guess thats right?? I may play with the diameter of the belt pulleys and have the highest HP engine on the cadet.

Report another big snow storm due here next week, she's dropping 1 fioot of snow right now but it may intensify as it hits the ocean. Great with the 50's in temps due here too. If this mixes with the colder temps this could be a real snow maker. I hope we don't get another 30"........
