Seems we seen the Last of the major Storms! YEAH!

Like someone else has said two days of 40 degree weather. Sure feels like turn for the better at least for most of us here in the northeast. Especially since the springing of the clock! The longer days are great! Still cant believe some of you have barely got to use your blowers!!
I guess we need to work on them in being able to test them while there is still some snow left!
Cheers

I saw my golf clubs in the garage the other day. They gave me the finger.

HS 928 TCD. It's Canadian eh! (Sure I'm done modifying it, for now, until next time.......)

Still has the physical and emotional scars to this day.
Wind scares her but a little less each year.

I was vigorously chopping ice with the Mutt 2 days ago on the patio in the back. As I started shoveling, I realized the garden hose was under all the snow and ice.

Oops

Toro 2450 (recent purchase)
Toro PowerLite (3hp)
Craftsman 3/20 (also recent, will likely flip)

I am feeling confident enough now to do an oil change and general cleaning and inspection.
But not confident enough to drain it of gas for storage yet. Another month before I do that.
Then I will be tuning up the mowers, and posting to that forum.

I feel your pain. I did an extension cord at work a couple of weeks ago.
Pretty easy compared to the pile of wire coat hangers several years ago.
