Good picture Ray!

Here we are in a big meltdown. 1" of rain tomorrow and then back in the deep freeze!
Wish I could get a Dozer on the roofs we have cleared in the last 2 weeks!
Crew of 4 today just trying to stay away from more roof damage.

I'm not seeing time to get in the woods any time soon :?

Happy dozing!

Ray: Nice picture. I had a similar view from my machine as I worked up and down the driveway with an angled blade trying to make room for the next storm. We're predicted to get rain on Friday - after you do. Now for a tilted skating rink! Take care. Paul

We only got about 10" total here, but I finally got to play with my snowblower. I had to import it from Pennsylvania about five years ago because Allis Chalmers garden tractors are rare on this side of the US.

The family from a few years back. The dozer didn't have a chance to get out and play this winter.

The 40 doesn't have that blade on it anymore. It's sporting a #61 now.

That snowblower is serious business. My dad has a 7' 3 pt mount blower and I don't think it throws snow much farther than that.

Don't know about that orange AC tractor but, at least the snow blower is green. :) gregjo1948

The blower is off a Deutz Allis from the 80's, after Allis Chalmers changed hands.

Lake effect snow since Monday and predicted through Friday along eastern shore of lake Ontario... plowed 10+ inches this morning and another 8-10 this late afternoon... wish I had pics but it is fun for sure plowing with the dozer.

Lake effect snow here too. The wind is 30-40 mph! Drifts are now 8' and climbing. Running out of places to push it. Hope she starts @ -5.
Happy dozing!

Dozer is backed in the shop for spring fluid changes and to check all the bolts for tightness.
Has been a long winter. Yet greatful for snow to push!
Time to grade the drives once the frost is out.

18" or more of heavy snow N/NW of me early this week, but we only got 3" maybe, kind of the story for the year. Now if it would ever warm up, I can work on the driveway too.

Found some high ground and pulled 2 cord of dead and dry Ash.
Still a bit yet before turning off the wood burners! I have never burned so much wood as I did this year. Had double of what I usually burn and still ran out!
Now she is back in the shop for maintenance.

I think (hope) we are done with new snow for the year in Saskatchewan. I have been burning bush piles here for the past few weeks and that is going well thanks to my dozer. Still 3 feet of snow on the piles but, when I roll them over with the dozer, then they will burn without the melt putting them out. And, I am having a great time pushing the piles around.

my 450c and his little buddy Image It amazes me how many tons of this stuff will burn away on one weekend.

If we could only bottle the heat!
Looks like fun!
