Of course, it's going to be in the mid-50s again tomorrow.

    I'm just ready for it to stay warm for a while. This winter has been tough.
    We got 7" here in Medina but the worst was the drifts.

    We got about 1" of rain, which has now frozen and it is snowing like crazy here now. The winds are blowing so hard that the snow is just blowing over the ice and doesn't seem to be accumulating. Who knows what it will look like in a few hours when it is supposed to be over.

    I can't believe the east coast this year, you people have really been getting the weather. We haven't had much for storms but it has just been extremely cold, now residents here have had frozen water pipes as the frost is down more than normal. Don't know which is worst, cold or the snow.

    Personally, I would rather have the snow. It has to warm up to snow. (You won't see -40F and snow.) We up here need about 2 weeks of -40F every winter to kill off the black flies, then it can warm up and snow like crazy.

    I'll take the snow any day of the week. We've had an unusually cold winter here in northern New England too, but nothing like what you midwesterners have had.

    16" of powder from this storm, didn't get any rain this far north. Of course, this morning the %^Ω€$# battery in the tractor went feet up. Luckily I had an old one sitting in the garage...couple hours on the charger and good to go. Time for a new one though...given what a PITA it is to get at the battery in the Kioti, I don't really want to go thru it again in single-digit temperatures anytime soon.

    What brand is that rear blade and how does it do? I'm gonna be getting one in about a month and haven't decided on any particular one. I do like the looks of yours and 84" is what i'm looking for.

    It's a Servis blade, who became Rhino. It's a couple decades old I'd guess. Heavy. Works great tho. But it's an 8 footer, not 84".

    Oh yeah, my bad. I read wrong. Your box blade is 84". Very nice set up you got. I wish I could have afforded the 1648 but my fund were limited.
