If you eat all those cookies at once you'll get the Hershey Squirts!

Hard for me to imagine the snow. Gonna be 82 here today! Funny, too, that we had 26 two nights in row, and all my peaches and plums froze.

But the right word at the right time... "Hey, give me a little hug!" That's the difference between lightning and a harmless lightning bug!

Wearing proper clothing will keep your "peaches" from freezing

Bummer on the frozen produce though that always sucks

Cheers!

I will, you've got Peaches, she wearing the nuts. Ask if you can have them back. Better yet , demand that they be returned to there rightful owner.

Nice snow you got there Bill. My favorite cookies too. You push any snow on gravel driveways with the CJ? I'm thinking I would like to put a blade on mine when it's done and was wondering if the blade tends to dig into the gravel much and make a mess of things. Get ready next week cause they say we got more on the way. Everybody tells me we had 13" here.

I suppose it would be up to the operator to NOT STICK HIS BLADE IN THE GRAVEL! Unless your future Jeep won't run in a measly inch of snow!!

I'm no expert on this since this is only my 2nd year. I use these on the 2 gravel drives I do. If you don't, you'll end up with piles of gravel in the spring.
These are Western brand, I'm using them on a Meyer plow. I like them better than the Meyer.


image-3317724296.jpg



image-1225722145.jpg

There's 2 reasons for this.

1.) The cutting edge on the blade is wore quite a bit, the Western skis allow for a lower height of the blade.
2.) If the Meyer skis don't rotate, they will dig in.

In the first picture if you can see it, I had to use a piece of tubing to enlarge the shaft so they would fit better in the plow.

For the 15 years prior to plowing with the Jeep, I used a garden tractor with a 40" blade. Even it pushed gravel with no skis. I found you can dress warm enough, but my hands would get cold holding on to the steering wheel with the tractor. Garden tractor and ATV blades don't offer enough angle of the blade for the snow to roll to the side.
Now I can plow in a tee shirt, with a travel mug of coffee.

This latest snow was wet and heavy. I did 7 driveways in less than a hour 100'+ long. It likely would have taken 3 or 4 times that long with the tractor.

My neighbor, when he's not in Florida, uses a small Kabota lawn tractor with a bucket, Im not a fan, to much goes around the sides. He does have a blade for the 3 pt hitch, it's not tall enough, and requires plowing in reverse.

On edit, at a angle, the blade needs to still be wider than what your pushing it with. This wasn't the case with my tractor.

Dude, it's winter, they're in the barn. I think they're fair weather horses.
Kind of like Floridians. They stay inside when the temp. Drops below 65!
