    I helped you out a bit.

    Took mine off today also.

    At 50 degrees out, I needed to haul some leaves and downed branches.

    I did leave the quick hitch on though!

    Ha! I think a lot of us were helping out today. Off came my 4-way Blade, onto the dolly and rolled to the back of the garage. Crossing my fingers it's not a jinx.

    Beautiful beaches, moderated summer heat and lake effect snows. Right where I want to be.

    I pulled all the driveway markers and "wrapped" them for the seasonal storage. I gather all of the fiberglass poles and wrap them together with one of these and it works great.

    A couple of important pointers. Always wear leather gloves when handling the markers as they splinter and fracture from the elements and being flexed when its really cold. The tiny little fiberglass splinters are nearly impossible to see and its best to simply avoid them. Wrapping the poles with the plastic keeps them all gathered and organized. In the fall, simply cut the plastic and away you go..........

    So, between removing the snow blowers and driveway markers, we are really asking for it.

    I did leave my snow plow and rear carrier on the tractor. Maybe tomorrow I will pull the plow off.......but I am afraid that once I do.......and I have a lot of people who rely on me for their driveway clearing. If we received less than 4", then I wouldn't be too concerned except any snow after the warm up is sure to be very heavy, very wet and very difficult to handle. Not to mention people will be getting stuck in it and unable to get up their driveways.

    Right now the long range forecast doesn't look conducive for snow, but the weather guessers seem to be off more and more as time goes on. Yesterday, we were going to have an 80% of showers today and today, not a sprinkle happened.......

    In 2017, the last time I plowed for the season was on February 16th

    In 2018, the last time was February 22nd

    So far for 2019, March 7th was our last snow which required plowing......until we all remove the snow equipment.

    I addressed the horrid whip over in GM.

    Not slacking, well maybe a bit today, but itís really speak for I DISLIKE THE VENT FREE GAS FIREPLACE IN THE FAMILY ROOM. Iím pretty much looking at a whole house interior repaint due to a soot issue from some logs that shifted when the free standing fireplace got bumped. Possibly from a stray soccer ball, you know because our family room also doubles as an indoor soccer field. Grrrrr
