Finally some SNOW

We are finally getting some snow to play around in here in central KY calling for 3-5 inchs. So its not much but its something. I will finally get to see how the cj handles it.

DON'T SAY THAT!

I still haven't found a hydraulic pump for my snow blade...


I think I accidentally shipped mine off to the junk yard this summer and I haven't found a replacment yet!

They are saying anywhere from 2 to 10" for us, but I've been here when we got 38" of snow on a 6" warning,
And I've been here when they said we were going to get 10" of snow and we got 6" of ICE instead!

The weather man is a fracking moron so it's a crap shoot every time he says something!

Yeah, we've been told 1-3" every day for the past few days. Not bad. I want a foot over a few hours like a couple years ago, the time when I had to leave for work with 11" overnight and I didn't even try my Accord (only vehicle I had at the time roadworthy). Shoveled the drive, watched plow truck go past 3 times a block down, but they never touched my street til 6pm. I was shoveling at 7am. Spent the morning digging and pushing my neighbors back into their driveways cause they thought they'd make it. I bought my CJ last spring hoping for that to happen again then (was early March when we got that 11" IIRC) but not even a dusting. Well, I wanna play in that now!!! BRING ON THE SNOW!!! I haven't liked snow for the past 5 years or so at least, but my CJ changed me on that... Those BFG A/T work great, and I wanna try to overcome them...

It works out to be around $1 a min.

I'll only plow a couple times a winter though. Most of the times people just tough it out. Only call me after they get stuck.


Kind of funny today. 19*F and raining!

I drove through eastern Kentucky yesterday on the way back home and I can tell you the local folk must not be used to snow. Counted 10 vehicles in the ditch in about a 70 mile stretch. Mostly 2wd pickups, a few smaller cars. Several looked like the icy bridges caught them unawares. It was slick, but not terrible if you know how to drive. The scariest moment was when 2 petroleum tankers overtook us going at least 80mph. Idiots.

They are saying that the upper atmosphere Jet Stream hasn't looked like this since the winters of '77 & '78...

'77 we had 6" of ice, topped by about 24" of snow,
Everything stopped for about a month.
I lived on a farm, and livestock still has to be fed, watered, ect. through all that.

38" of snow here in '78 and actual temps of -20F. wind chills of -75F.!
Three of the local guys had pneumonia, so guess which dumb azz farm boy had to feed/water their livestock along with our own!
We were out of school for about six weeks, and it took the national guard over two weeks to get back to us!

Being farmers, we already had our selves dug out,
And I spent more time on a snowmobile than I did on farm equipment, but when you are 16 you really don't care as long as it's not a bicycle!

And people wonder why I joined the Marines at 17 and one day old!
Marines was a cake walk compared to working on the farm!

Wow, sounds like some of you need to move up here in Wisconsin, land of the snow home to rust buckets. We have about a foot of snow here. It is nice as long as what your driving on hasn't turned to ice. I have an engine to swap out and I will be good to go. It's just so cold, below zero maybe up to the teens, it's hard getting anything done in the garage.
