If we don't get some serious snow here shortly, the kids are going to mutiny! :lol: We got almost a foot a month ago, and it is settled down to nothing with a few warm days. The 420 is all ready to push snow, and no snow to push.

Andrew; Glad that you got the snow the wind must have blown it right over the top of my house and landed in your driveway. LOL We only got a foot of that,then turned to rain. Nice pic's, that's what it looks if I was setting on my 430c plowing. Dean

heres a few more pics from today, we got 4in last night and are supposed to get another 3 to 5in tomorrow. so far this has been the 6th snowiest December for us on record. i would have to check but i think we've gotten around 44in. its fun to use the crawler once in a while, but its faster with the 3140.

I have lived in Florida my whole life and have only seen it snow here 3 times, the only time it stuck to the ground was back in 77 and we made snowballs. What you guys are doing looks like lots of fun, wish I could do that.

Here in Sweden the rule is that all fun things should be taxed heavily.
And looking from the pic´s, you´re enjoying life and having just a little to much..............fun! Someone needs to tax you..............! :wink:

Hi,

Andrew, I like the way that the snowplows keep changing style, color and even go from tracks to wheels and back again!

Must be magic. Have you been reading Harry Potter and taking things a little too literally???? :P

Enjoy the snow. I'm hoping for some down here in Carolina so I can show the neighbors how to plow out that mile and a half road we have for a driveway. :)

Later!

Stan

Great bunch of pictures, here's some from BC

I have been having fun in the snow too! I finally put some lights on the 350, sure beats holding a Mag light between the teeth! That's hard on the tooth enamel! It seems I hardly get a chance to plow my driveway in the daylight. Sometimes it just can't wait till the weekend.

Sure is interesting to go up and bump one of those snow covered trees with the blade! I have to get a bigger canopy or get a little faster at getting backed up! :D :D

I guess I would also be worried about the mag light freezing to my lips :lol:

That's some nice scenery in your second pic (both the crawler and the mountain)!
