    We have a Tractor with bucket, two CamAm commanders with plow ,Polaris Ace with plow and blow engine again. ATV with plow and a couple trucks that will go through just about anything. Even if you don't need it everyday when you do . It is nice to have.
    We have used the equipment often to get others out that had to.
    Now the wind is picking up, this was a lighter snow so it will blow.

    We've got a couple ways to push snow as well; always a good idea to have options!

    So...I'll be doing his chores for a while along with mine; like hiking up top (snowshoes) to clean off the array, filling the gen - those 5gal cans are heavy, tromping out to the wood piles, etc. I dont mind, gives me something to do...and town can wait. Especially as my Outback is over the edge part way down. It usually does pretty well up on these goat trails, snow or bare, but I guess everything has it's limits. LOL
    Wow, that's scary. He is lucky he's only got a concussion and broken ribs. It could have been so much worse. Praying for a speedy recovery for him.

    I was looking forward to enough snow to try out my tractor/bucket. 2 inches of slush isn’t enough. But I’m sure sooner or later the snow will come. Here it has been an usually warm winter with little snowfall. Actually, it would be great if I didn’t get to use the tractor all winter.

    Glad to hear it wasn't anything worse. A concussion isn't trivial though, especially when snowed in. Keep a close eye on him, and get comfortable driving that nice truck (Ram and Western plow?) I saw you had in an earlier pic.

    Finally got enough snow for a good ride here, but wet+heavy snow, not like the powder we got a few days back. And not near any cliffs!



    I shouldn't have been driving alone, I know. If you don't mind my asking MG, was he wearing a helmet?

    It was up to 30 degrees today. Now it is 13 degrees, 6 degrees by morning. The wind is hitting 20 mph. The change in temperature must have locked the snow down it is not blowing. For what ever reason Sheriff has not opened the snowmobile trails yet. Of course they can not spot you from riding on Private land with owners permission.

    Sheriff doesn't have anything to do with the trails in WI. Many years working on the trails and many hours in a groomer.

    Big Ram with a big Boss V-plow. I can't see over the hood, lol. Next spring I'll get comfortable running one of the smaller snow pushers. Colder, but do-able.

    Yes, he was wearing a helmet, it's why he's still alive.
    Ready. You?

    You are not correct Sheriff is the one that decides if condition allow them to be used. One word from the Sheriff and they are closed or open to public use. They trial has run across my property for 40 years now.
