All the crap cleaned out of the small garage, and there's actually a car in it (first time in 5 years).
Studded tires on the Ural to get out and play

FJ Cruser gassed up: Check

That's my list. Done.

We're all set to go

Seriously though. This storm could suck, especially near the coast with the wet snow and high winds. Keep an eye out in case your friends and/or neighbors need help, and most of all.... Stay Safe!


Oh yeah, don't forget the pics! Remeber,without pics, it didn't happen

A guy on NESR posted a photo of that rig outside the State Liquor store on 93.

My town just sent out a newsletter with a photo of a black sidecar rig downtown durring the storm.

Crazy mo' fo's.

I discovered three things today.

1) A* Scout boots and insulated, waterproof bike gloves make for awesome snow removal gear. My 'winter' boots were wet in about an hour, so instead of waiting for them to dry, I tried the Scouts. They had much better traction then the winter boots, and I stayed dry and warm. Same for gloves. Can't beat decent bike gear on a day like today.

2) Wearing bike gear while pushing snowblower around the yard for 6 hours feels nothing like riding

3) A snowblower with 18 inch high intake opening struggles with 4ft snowdrifts and even more so where the state plow guys managed to build a wall 4.5 ft hight and 4 ft thick at the entrance of the driveway.


If you are asking yourself why 6 hrs: 150ft long driveway (2 car width), plus other 40ft to my carport (my side of the garage has bikes in it, so I built myself a carport, which provides seemingly endless source of reminders my wife uses to tell me where my priorities are), 22sq roof that I shoveled down and which needed to be cleared after it landed, and my two lazy dogs who appear incapable to do their business in 3ft of snow, so I have to clear some walking paths for them around the yard (about 300ft of paths).

So that's why I hated my snowblower...got to shovel my roofs today

Hey, I wear my heated liner when I'm on the tractor, plowing . Works great .

I got a pair of these for Christmas and they are awesome. Used them once on the bike and they seemed to work well (a little bulky, though) but I was only running errands so it'll be interesting to try them on a longer ride.
