Snow - Snow - Go Away...

Well it's 10 deg's and we're in another snow storm. Over 18" already on the ground. I thought it a good time to look at some of my video's from last summer.

I'd like to share a little "green" with you guys hold up in your igloos.

55+f. in Lander, WY today, larry31.
Dry roads, so I rode it 20 miles, changed the broken headlight lens from last OCT. And rode it another 30 miles.
Sorry you have so much snow.

Wow sounds like fun. I'm thankful for snowblowers and an ATV with a blade. Kinda makes moving snow fun - as long as I don't have to drive. The hillbillies here forget how to drive when snow is on the road.

This is my snow blower..... Kubota L2250 Old, but still works like a champ.

I don't see a 'blower' chute up front, larry31!
I see a plow 'pile' in front of you.
We hope you don't run out of 'room to push it'!

Back in the winter of '79-'80, Lander, WY received 218 inches of snowfall in one season. Many roofs, couldn't take the 'snow-load'!
I'll suggest, shovel your entire roof, NOW!

It seems like you guys out in the NE are getting hammered with repeated substantial snowfalls this Winter. I lived in upstate NY for 4 years: way too much snow and not enough Summer for me.

I just hit the "after-burner" and when I apply the "ABS" the snow goes "blowing"......snicker, snicker


actually, I can push my piles about as high as my neighbor can shoot his snow, with his blower.

Man, I feel for you guys. Seriously, I feel so lucky I can ride all year. Hang in there.

Don't feel too sorry for us. Even though the riding is difficult, the skiing and snowmobiling are great right now.
