"There's no wind at all!!"...she said.
Okay...I'll just start on the left side of the driveway... because I know better. The new snow was probably 12-14 inches.
The snow blower is a biggin' and it will throw some snow now!. So I made my way over to the left side and turned the chute left.
Well, it took about 5 seconds for me to be a snowman with the snow blowing back over me! No wind, huh??? So, I turned the chute to the right....snow
flying about 45' feet...okay we're good now!
Wife says...Well, when you get over to the other side the snow will be so deep you can't blow it with the snow blower!"
Note: This is why we bought a a 14hp 2 stage (not three) blower...this thing will move some snow!!
So I'm out there in the 18" deep snow, just launching this stuff like 60 feet.
The neighbor comes over and tell''s me "Wow...that's like a force multiplier! would you mind if I borrowed it???"
Jackass...I told him hell NO!! Asked why he never paid his dues for our road, and all the snow plowing, and re-work we do on the road...the freaking
TOAD! (He's got some lame excuse). Anyway...
We hadn 't plowed the road yet. (all two miles of it)
So I told this wanker..."Okay, well, why don't you come over and help us put the chains on the skid steer, and then hook up the (60" snow
He says he'll be over in a few minutes...but never shows up. Just putting the chains on are hard, as they weigh about 100lb's per chain set. So we
get the skid chained up and the snow blower on, with all the hydraulic lines.
So I'm going down the road, throwing 34" of snow about 90 feet off the side of the road with the skid...and this dude is nowhere to be found. My
other two neighbors are out there on their tractors with buckets trying to push the edges...we're all moving snow. Everybody is out there working
... EXCEPT for this jackass! And what does this jackass do???? ........... He's following me (in the skid with the snowblower) down the road so he
can get his sorry POS F#ing van out to the County road!!!! No S#! It's a good thing I'm not armed in the skid when I'm clearing snow because I
definitely would have taken out a tire or two on this dude's sorry rig!! This POS, talked all big, like he was going to help (for the first time in
SEVEN years) and then just punked out! (as usual).
I probably burned 60 gallons of diesel today blowing snow, and this dude just crept out behind me in the skid. He's never helped us once! Not
Anyway, I set up a new weather station on our place today. Our old one had been seriously bludgeoned over the past six years. I'm pretty happy with
it, it's pro-gear stuff...and we are weather monitors for NOAA. So, despite it all...I got something done for US.
Note: Temps 25F, winds 9mph out of the NW, wind chill 23F. Baro at 29.84 and steady. Dew point...17F.
F# 'em...life is good!
