We have 2 inches of fresh sleet over here. This is some very hard packed stuff, standing on it I don't sink down at all. Until yesterday most all of the ground cover except for a few places in the woods was exposed. Last Friday I had the snow tires on the car removed thinking that this was the end of it all, why we even had the dandylions and crocus in bloom.

Also last Friday I took the Winter tires and chains off the 102. The driveway was in real bad shape and I graded and leveled it Friday and Saturday. This came out really nice as conditions were perfect, not to muddy, not too dry, just right. I regret not having taken some before and after shots, I was really pleased with the way that turned out. Afterward I parked it by the house thinking that putting the deck back on the 126 was going to be my next move.
Now this

I already know that it is worthless in my drive with the ag tires back on and I'm not even going to try.

I'm hoping that it's a slow melt Dave. If it gets into the fifties this weekend like their sayin I'm gonna wind up with this all over again.

Actually with the kids long gone we really don't need this big house anymore and that's exactly what I have been thinking for some time now.

After I posted yesterday I went for a walk and found our new brook! I walk about 1/2 mile Into the woods behind my shop and found a 1/4 acre puddle as the source. I’m going to add some drainage in the form of a swale and repair a clogged/broken drainage pipe. Right now my trailer is parked on top of wash out that looks a lot like kens driveway. I’ll need a load or two of stone too....

One thing's for sure I don't want hear any of that chatter about lack of water this Summer :roll:
Joe, note the date stamp, that shot was from last year right about the same time and which I don't want to deal with again. I wound up messing my back up pretty good on that one and are getting about tired with all of that by now. Wife had to park at the bottom yesterday, what an uproar that turned into :?, she could not get up that with a snowmobile so what's the point?
The folks up the hill from us here about four years now listed last year. What's funny about this is we get people all the time stopping at the bottom of the drive using their GPS with their blue and white license plates looking for that country dream if you know what I mean.
They sit there at the bottom for fifteen minutes or so, turn around and go back the way they came. :lol:
Anyway, since there's a little dirt showing now I should be able to get to work this evening no problem. If I don't bend another $1600. spindle.
My snow plow guy never showed up and I understand his reasons why. Show me the grass already :!:

Time to reactivate this thread :lol:
The first real snow of the season
DSCN8233.JPG

About 6 inches it was dense too. Has packed down a lot since last night.
Had a pretty knarly ride home last night with 18 wheelers spun out trying to go up hills on the Interstate. What was the first vehicle of the year I saw off in the ditch? Why a Jeep of course.
My plow guy was MIA and I had to get my kitty out of the vets so I broke out the 102 after sitting around for about a month. It touched right off and got the job done without a blip. That was just a test session :P

6” of heavy sleet !

149 and 1872 are warm and ready....
weird storm here 6” of snow over night not that fluffy stuff you get out west, heavy back braking stuff. Tv news compaired it to a 18” light snow. Then 2” of sleet, then ice above that! It’s going to be a tough afternoon, I’m waiting for it to end before I go out. 25 minutes away my buddy asked if I was going to plow, he didn’t need too! All rain!

Who knows why but most of my snow removal has been with the blade fitted machine this year. The 126 was starting to gat an abandoned look about it just covered there and it was time to dig her out. I keep a trickle charger on it in the Winter time so it started right up. It pulled right out of all the heavy snow all around it without barking too much. I cleared it's parking spot and then some.

Snow banks were getting pretty close to the driveway and the blade was not having any of that so I nibbled them back five or ten feet or so.

Old snow banks are one of the hardest things for a tractor. The other day I hand shoveled a small pile with a steel dirt spade and I thought I was going to break the handle. Good job.

Deep freeze here. Pushing all that slush aside Sunday was the right thing to do. This stuff has turned into concrete. :o
DSCN8331.JPG

The wild life has got to be having a hard time by about now. Yesterday about a half hour before going to work I packed a bag lunch and tossed it outside the kitchen entranceway on to the snow bank, when I headed back out for work by then something had jumped up and ripped open the bag- all that in under half hour and right by the door. The tracks had already been blown over by then but it was either a raccoon or a cat.
Someone ate my bologna sandwich :lol: Well, he needed it more than me.

Ah, we barely got a dusting... But Ken is always our "early warning" as to what's to come! My 1872 is ready with the Haban blade, weights and chains 365 days a year, so I'll be fine until January when I might need a blower. Usually when I'm done leaves I throw the blower on 2182-2 (2182-1 wears the loader 365 days a year...).
