Everybody got their snowblowers ready?

I'm pretty much set myself. I mixed up a fresh batch of 50:1 for the Toro Powerlite and got it fired up the other day. While putting the mower away, I got the Honda HS622 out and changed the oil and put in a new spark plug.

So, I'm ready, bring on the snow!

Anybody else got their machines out and ready?

Used 4 liters(1 gal) already.
Nov 9, 10 and 11 we had a snow dump of 12 in.(30cm) plus. The 11th was a bit windy which piled it into some drifts, but wasn't too bad.
This weekend had temperatures around the freezing point.
Now if I believe the weather forcast, by Thur we could expect up to another 15cm(6in.).
I'll just wait until that happens, in the mean time the blower is fueled up and ready to go.

The Changing of the Guard, last weekend:



The Wheel Horse did her last mowing of the season, had her battery and gas removed, and is ready to snooze away the winter..

On the same day, the Ariens had her oil changed, fresh gas, some oil and grease applied, and she is ready to roll!

Not the norm, but over the winter we can usually expect a couple of feet.
Lately the weather has been at the extremes, floods then drought.
Hard to say if we will get any more large amounts of snow, usually it's 1 to 2 in. in a storm.
Snow fall by itself is not bad, but when the winds howl (30 to 50mph) the drifts get really large.

On Wednesday mother nature decided to dump another 15 to 20 cm (6 to 8 in.).
But before the snow fall we had 1/4 in. of rain.
As the temp dropped the rain changed to snow.
What a mess, fortunately the power remained on.
Snow blower had a good work out again.
