Digging out and throwing it in neutral.

After my celebration on Saturday night, Sunday brough much rest as the Lord intended.  I awoke at 6 AM so that I could clean up and go have breakfast with the football team and watch the playoff selection.  MSU received a #4 seed and at least one home game.  The grizzlies were left out of the playoffs for the first time in like 15 years.  That's the way it goes.

After breakfast I hooked up the plow to my four-wheeler and decided to plow my driveway after the 8 inches of snow that dropped Friday night.  Did my driveway and the neighbors and hit my part of the subdivision's sidewalks as it was cold and not a lot of people wanted to shovel evidently.  5.1 miles of sidewalk later I called it a day of plowing.

We are supposed to have lovely weather this week.  High's in the teens.  Low's below zero and more snow.  Fortunately, work will be slow and the need for me to leave the confines of my office for anything more than to drive my truck home will keep me warm and dry.  MCW theme is up.  It's lame I know, but it's a short week and while the Bobcats are winning I went with an easy one.  It's all part of my master plan.

Haiku Thursday is back as well.  Go to Troll's place if you want to know how everything works.

Now it's to work for me.  Take care all.

We had a few piddling snow showers this morning, along with gale force winds. But over all, I don't think we're in much danger of getting out the Wovel this winter. Just getting frost bite.

Pam said...

ACK! Snow already? Enough to plow? I'm still recovering from last Christmas eve when we got hit so bad with the white stuff. You keepy, okay?

We had SNOW last night and I'm in my office shivering next to the heaster with two chihuahuas.

none of us are very happy about it.

Good evening MRM,

The sun went down an hour ago its 57°and we will have fog tonight. The southern portion of the front that gave you the snow will give us a rain Wednesday night and Thanksgiving Day. You live in a beautiful piece of the world, but I'm not sure I would want to deal with that much winter.

Do you know anybody that builds a good snow blower for a skid steer?

I won't comment on that topic for MCW yet, I'll figure something out.

I wore out the auger on my snow blower with the 70+" of snow we had last season. I have it on the bench and hope to work on it tomorrow. $200 in parts - jeez. But at least we don't have snow on the ground - just leaves. Lots and lots of leaves.

Hi All,
Just reading your comments and thought I'd let you all know its 11pm here in Aus and still 27 degrees C
Looking at 38-40 c tomorrow.
Stay warm. I'll try to keep cool.
Send snow Now Madman....

Moi, not getting out the Wovel is a good thing.

Pam, I remember that big storm you had. Yup enough to plow and another 3 or so inches last night.

Boxer, I'm layered up as well. I have the coldest office in the building and this isn't helping.

Karl, send me an email with your make and model. I'll find a dealer near you. Selling equipment is my business and I've made a lot of friends over the years.

BK,70 inches is a good winter of snow and I don't care where you are.

Princess, I'll send all the snow you can handle once snowmobile season is over and golf season is starting. Deal?

Right. Because, have you ever USED a Wovel? It was Spousal Unit's "downsizing" idea after we sold the ATV with snowplow attachment. The biggest irony of our relationship is that he goes out of town, it dumps two feet of snow, I'm the one who Wovels.

Moi, I have never used a "wovel". I'm laughing my ass off as I thought it was a typo.
