Well, that's a wrap, folks! Gonna fog the cylinder, drain the carb, and wipe `er down with silicone.


It seems fairly unlikely The Old Dominion will see measurable snow this year, so from Northern Virginia I'll sadly close the book without once having the occasion to use my new blower.


Time to fire up the garden tiller and prep the garden tractor, sharpen the blades, etc.




For those of you still blowin' snow ... God bless ya.


See you in November!

Yes. Unfortunately the rain we got a couple days ago wasn't accompanied with a Canadian cold front. Would have received at least a foot of snow if not for temps.

Still threats of snow here in northern NJ! It's looking like 3-5 from one system, then a possibility of a nor'easter on Tuesday. Who saw that coming?...

I might even have my 10hp Tecumseh MTD swap ready for Tuesday.

On the positive side, you have a prime condition VV1332 waiting in the wings.

Ya Nova Scotia is looking at a couple of shots of snow and cold over the next week. Usually doing spring yard cleanups by this time. Crazy winter this year. Roller coaster weather ....one extreme to the other, but overall a warm winter. Just looks like its going to hold on late.
