Today I finally did a water change on my fish tank. I run a hose out the front door and start a siphon. It has been so brutally cold that I haven't done a water change in a month in a half. It should be done every week. "Gilbert" is very happy now.

Toro ccr2000, 3000(2) and 3650(2)

Looking for suggestions on professional two stage that can handle big snow. Dont need a super wide cut.

Just bought my snowblower a present

From snowblowerskids.com!
My New Englander 5/24 has a 3 inch spacing on the slots. The old ones are pretty well shot. One side is just a straight piece of metal now. It makes a racket!

i'm indoors today. it started snowing about nine this morning , a wet heavy snow. around one this afternoon it turned to rain and with the snow that was already on the ground there are many streets that are flooded simply because the water has no where to go, lots of the sewers are covered with snow and ice

Heavy fog and pouring rain, coupled with mild 40* temps gave me a chance to shut down the wood fired boiler, check and clean the flue pipe, and move wood into the basement. Seems like temps are gonna nose dive again by Tuesday, with chance of two more snow events. Cleaned the chainsaws off, too. I'm gonna need to start cutting some dead downed stuff soon.

Yesterday I went out and dug a trench in the snow extending 10 feet out from my downspouts. With all the melt and rain I wanted to keep any flooding off of my foundation as much as possible. I have a very dry basement but I don't take that to granted.
