Looking forward to tomorrow's snow.

They tell us 6-10 inches across CT. It's about time! People think I'm nuts wanting the snow but I look forward to playing with my machines. Gonna stop by Mom's and pick up the Toro 521 tonight and give it the rubber squeegee upgrade. I'm sure all my neighbors will drop off their machines today for oil changes or tune-ups as most have ignored them all year. Can't wait to play!!

Same here, I've got a curb find MTD that I have been working on and I just dialed in the new carb on my old Craftsman. I'm also working on an Ariens 924039 that I'm replacing the whole auger/impeller unit.

Thanks to Jayzauto1 for all the parts, advice and good cheer. I hope you all sell a bunch of machines today! LET IT SNOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes I think you are nuts.

I can do with out the snow. I only want to use my machine occasionally and not regularly. And this storm will be the first time using it this season and it is too much already.

But I will always say...

Kenny, I live in Connecticut, as well. When you're done "playing" with your machine, you're welcome to come over and do some "playing" on my driveway, too.

Actually, I'd like to give Ole Betsy a turn.

It would be nice if y'all could share 4" of that snow with us down here in Northern Virginia.

My new Ariens won't get to blow any snow this year. We've had the least amount of snow I've seen in the 30+ years we've been here and it may be the lowest amount of snow in almost 100 years. I don't think the season's total will even add up to 3".

I'm ready for the snow as well! I think I forgot how to use my blower, it has been such a mild winter.
