Only 36 days to go...

Are you starting to have cabin fever?
Here's a pleasant thought if you're beginning to feel like Jack Nicholson did in The Shining...

Yea I have to admit, this winter has in general been a bust so far. It has been super cold, but we have not gotten much snow. We got about 4 small little snowfalls of a few inches and only one snowstorm with 7 inches. That was the one and only snowstorm where I really got to use my snowblowers this season. Right now it is 50 degrees and raining and the grass is starting to turn a little green. I can only hope we get one more descent snowstorm this winter before it is over. I guess I should be thankful for the one snowstorm we did get. But that's how it goes. Especially when you live on the snowline. You go a state North of here they usually get plenty of snow, but we are on the edge where it can go either way. I imagine in the future it will only get worse with the climate change and we will get less and less snow. Its odd though, some times we go 3-4 years in a row where we get lots of snow and I remember in the early 2000's we had like three years in a row where their was no snow at all. Of course I always hear the stories of how we used to get lost of heavy snow all the time back in the 60's. But that's how it goes.
I feel bad for my neighbor he bought a brand new 36 inch Ariens snowblower, (way to big for his driveway) and we only got one snow, not even near enough for what that machine can handle, still cant figure out why in the world he bought one that big with a tiny driveway and lot... Oh well anyway that's how it goes...

The year I bought the MTD (1999) we got hardly any snow.
So the best way to keep snow away is to buy a new machine! Guaranteed!

According to stats, we are close to 2 meters of snow this winter. We expect floods when it all melts down.

We got about eight inches a couple days ago, so I went out and did my driveway, my neighbor's driveway, and parts of three other neighbor's driveways. LOL Wanted to give my snowblower a workout to really test out the new wheels and stuff.

I'm not looking for spring to arrive just yet. The winter hasn't given us a lot of snow around here, both for using our machines, and for getting to go cross-country skiing, snowshoeing, etc. And the few times we did get snow, it seemed to stay bitterly cold, then warmed up and rained.

I'm hoping that more snow will be coming.

62 in central NJ and monsoon rain. Should be a bumper crop of mosquitoes, ticks and flies with this mild weather!
