    Hey Zebra!!! Get yer mittens dusted off! Time to play in the Snow!!

    We will probably get more than a foot, but I'll make sure some gets down south your way too!!!!!
    Just cuz I know ya like it!

    It's hilarious how the weather wonks try to predict lake effect 24 hours out, and NEVER call it accurately.
    Last couple of times they called 1' we got 30"+ in 8 hours, and poor South Haven was buried before they could get the plows out.

    You got the blower on the 6 series yet?


    Snowfall forecast for Today and Wednesday calls for a foot of snow in one area | MLive.com

    About 3" this morning. Temp in the low teens. Had the old yellow truck out plowing. Will see what comes over night tonight. I dn't mind the snow too much, it's the bitter cold that bothers me. I did wear mittens. I switched to them a couple nights ago. Gloves were not keeping my hands warm walking the dog.

    Four more inches of powder snow this morning. Plowed easy, but blew up in big clouds making visibility terrible.
    I should retire the old yellow truck to a salt free area where it would last another 36 years. It will be 37 March of this year.

    Park that pretty old girl and save her for the summer roads.

    Lord help me, If I could find another sold 77-79 F250, I'd dump our 03' 2500HD like an ugly girlfriend with Ebola.
    Ride sucks, they're noisy, and there's no useless gadgets, but you can swap a motor in the time it takes to find the dadgum spark plugs on the new crap.

    Put that Deere to use.

    Fender skirts on a tractor!!! That has to be a first!!!! Reminds me of the long fender skirts in the 50's. Seems like they called them cruiser skirts, but my memory is not that good.

    It's actually pretty common on 'orchard' models, it prevents the fruit and branches from being damaged by sharp edges or hanging on parts of the tractor. Orchard models from the 40's-50's are out there and generally pretty rare, as over the last 50-60 years some of the sheetmetal usually got lost.

    I had forgotten about the orchard models. However, weren't they shaped differently. More to a point on the leading edge???
