    Anyone besides me ready for winter? I just hooked up the blower and wired up all my lights. I just have to open the heat valves and install the doors. We have had snow as early as next week here. I also see snow forecast for Colorado. Anyone else ready?

    Not me. Haven't even thought about it much yet.

    I have plenty of backhoe work to do and as long as this weather lasts, I'll be doing that. I would like to do some thinning and chipping too before the blower and chains go on, but that can wait til next year if it has to.

    I think it was Halloween Night two years ago we had 8" of wet snow. Trick or Treat

    Not ready yet--have to get through "leaf season" first. I live within a 265 acre forest and affectionately refer to fall as "nuclear winter" around here. Thank God for an Agrimetal blower.

    Just had a new plow put on the truck yesterday. Never had anything but fisher plows but went with a Blizzard this time. Today I'm going to start and service the sander and put the curb guards on the plow. I'm ready

    My snow caster is all greased/painted up since last Spring. Even pulled the fan this year and did a good paint job... back of fan had never been painted before. Tractor is ready. But would take about 1/2 hour or so to plop the hoe on it's cart and hitch up the blower. Still a lot of stumps and other things to do for quite awhile yet. I am not rushing thru Fall, which is actually my favorite season of the year. Usually, if you get an early snow, it doesn't last long... BUT, you never know....

    NOOO!!! My new 54" snowblower is in stock, though - waiting for me to throw in the towel on fall & get it.

    Need to finish leaf mulching first.

    The kubota is not ready for winter, still working on other projects. I recently purchased an FFC V-plow, but don't have the hoses yet to run to my rear remotes. Thinking I'll chain up and be ready in mid-November. The Unimog is ready, but probably won't see action until we get quite a bit of snow. No significant snow yet in our part of Colorado, whereas Steamboat Springs (northern) had 10 inches as of this morning.
