Anyone excited for this season?


Last year was a dud in NJ - only two snowfall events each with 3-4" of heavy wet snow

I am feeling this year is going to be different

And when there is a new machine to try out for the first time it only adds to the excitement!

Oh yes, have the brand new Deluxe 24 finally all together and running pristine and hopefully Iíll get the engine issue figured out with the ST11526 pro before the snow as I have all the other repairs done, worst case I get a adapter plate made up and mount the 414cc LCT engine to it. But either way Iím ready for some snow, donít tell the wife lol she hates snow.

Sno-Tek Modded, 15"X-Track tires (Now has same X-Track tires but 13"x4" for better fit), 254cc engine LED light and hand warmers.
Snapper 6/22 sold but not forgotten. Was my first.
Ariens ST1027LE workhorse and going strong.
New 2017 Ariens Deluxe completely rebuilt after losing a fight with a forklift.

Yeah, I'm apprehensive. Recent winters have been complete disappointers The weather people suggest that the cold spell we've had in November typically means an e-z winter to follow

It has already begun here in Colorado! Enough so that my newly acquired snowblower has already paid for itself, and we are expecting a couple big storms this week! Last winter was a record breaker here. This winter is starting off about average, but average in the Colorado Rockies is nothing to sneeze at... I am always excited for winter, my favorite season by far!

they do the same thing around here.......hype up the storms so all the skiers will come up to the resorts and then the snowfall amounts are well below predicted.

2 days ago they said we are getting 18-24 inches. ....this morning our local weather says maybe 1-3 inches.

all winter long they do this. rarely does the weather live up to expectations.

BUT...............sometimes we do get a snowmageddon
