The weather has been crazy this winter. Last weekend was pushing 60 and it was below freezing with frozen rain this morning and more the rest of the week.

I need to get under the Vette and replace some U-joints on the half shafts before I can truly get it out for the season and I don't have a heated garage. This sucks!

Geno have a fun and safe summer Surge. that goes to all the rest too. It was interesting hearing all the different snow blower related things this past winter and as always a learning experience. Geno

Surge I took a chance two weeks ago and ran the blower until it ran out of gas. Unless we get six or more inches I will shovel what falls off of the sidewalk, and let what is on the driveway melt. I will do an oil change, general inspection, spark plug replacement, and lubrication and put it away until next fall/winter.
The mowers are ready to go except for cleaning and lubricating the rear wheels on one of them which may have some excess dirt in it, and could use some new grease. Should be another month or more before the first mowing.
See you all next winter, unless I find something wrong when I do my inspection.

db9938 Well, I think I will put the blowers to bed and prep the mowers this next week. Plus, I need to change the oil on the truck, so if I am already out there, I might as well do the rest.

Geno I'm putting mine away mid to late week. If it snows I'll get the shovel out. I ought to know better.. it's happened before, but I'll chance it- I'm really ready for summer. By the way I'm in South central WI (Fitchburg)

yes, we do get snow in April, its not rare..but if we do, it's almost always a light coating of wet slushy snow that melts away within 24 hours..dont need to break out the snowblower..I predict we are done (in the North-East) with "snow-blowable" snow for the season..but I will make of point of posting in this thread if I am wrong!

prediction failed!
SNOW! 8" of heavy wet snow on March 30.
what a crazy winter!
