Guess I am finally ready

Postby John *.?-!.* cub owner » Wed Dec 09, 2015 7:04 pm

Normally I try to have everything ready for winter earlier than this, but have been trapped inside for the last 3 weeks due to a combination of sore throat, coudh, sinus infection, and sore throat and severe ear infections. After 2 rounds of different antibiotics, cortisone shots and tablets, and prescription cough medicine I have finally felt like getting out enough to finish getting ready for winter. The radiators are all checked, hoses drained and put away, generators checked and filled with fresh gas, tractors filled and spare cans filled with fresh gas and StaBil, and the chimney cleaned. Today I put the snow blade and chains on one of the cubs, so far as I can remember that is the last thing I needed to do.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!

Good thing you brought up this topic.

I need to check the kerosene space heater to see if it works and locate the spare kerosene. Batteries for the radio. Batteries for flash lights.

I still need to fire up and prep the Case 1816 skid steer with snow blade and the generator set located at son's house. Stock up on 20 gallons of gasoline for the generator set. Need to move the skid steer with snow blade to the front of the garage.

Fire wood has been moved and piled. Still need a good hard freeze before moving the firewood inside to the wood racks.

Almost ready, except for what ever I forgot.
I have an excuse. CRS.

The local weatherman is calling for a mild winter here, but that means nothing to me. I drained and re-filled the radiators on (2) Cubs and confirmed -40 F on the H. All is good. Need to top off the gas tanks in each and then I'll be ready.

John--glad to hear you're feeling better. Stop getting sick! :)

We normally have much milder winters here in Arkansas. Usually a - 10 will hold us. Do need to top gas tanks off. Mild winters I handle just fine. Not sure I would enjoy the winters you guys sometimes have or those further north.
