Spring is around the corner

This is just like the old coffee shop, which was like the old coffee shop down the street. Pull up a chair, sit down and enjoy some good discussions. Please, no political, religious or racial posts.

Spring is around the corner

Post by Klapatta »

I was out in the yard this Morning doing some pick up sticks when I spotted this :)

This has been the worst mud season around here for the last 40 years. I took no photos because I don't want to remember it. The ground is perking down nicely now.
This Winter, I used the thrower machine twice, once on Jan. 20th and once a month later to pull back some snow banks. The blade machine did the majority of the work this season because most all of our snows were very thick and wet.
Are looking forward to mowing grass and engine shows :beer:

Ok. The suspense has got a hold of me...what you working on. A picture should have been included with your post then I wouldn't have had to waste my time writing this :roll:

I got the driveway graded today. Heavy ruts and humped in the middle. Not to firm, not too soft, just right :lol:

It took me just over an hour to remove the 10.5 Kenda turf tires with chains and wheel weights and mount the Tru Powers and weights back on. I spent about an hour and twenty minutes grading. I have yet to remove the front snow tires still I was pretty amazed by how well they did in all that loose gravel.
