Here is the plan for the morning... I got to dig my way down to the other house to get my ATV out to ride over next door to barrow the neighbors ATV and plow his yard then then mine... Daylight is here but the the visablity is moderate to low right now maybe 1 mile. Last night the power flickers and tripped all the yard floods on so I had to dig my way down to the guest house and shut off the breaker in the panel last night. That' sucks when you in flip flops and shorts at 10pm at night...:duh:Not to mention I got to careful push the snow off the RV too...I'll see about getting out the video camera later...:wink:

You know in NC when we do have to deal with snow like you have, we usually change out of our flip flops and shorts for tennis shoes, sweat pants and a fifth bourbon.:thumbup2:

Hope the four wheeler has a big bucket on it.:lmao2:

Actually its a 5 foot wide plow blade... Not bad...Control the up and down with a electric winch and the angle you need to hop off and unlock and swing the blade. Left to right 45*, 30*, 0, 30*, or 45*... Old vid but funny...

I should grab my scanner out of the other pickup and listen to the chaos here in the canyon... :rolleyes: Actually people are good out here. While I was out plowing the yard I seen traffic driving slowly (25-35 MPH) roughly being cautious. But now see the logging truck they are just flat humping tail to get to the mill. They get paid by the load and the local cops know they speed to make the money. :nono: But other than then our weather now shifted to the rain now... It 37*F as of right now and raining...

Hmm, thats just odd. Up here we are at about a 2,200ft elevation. You are at about 3,800ft elevation. We should be having a melt off before you do! Must be having a warm current going through your area, as we are forecasted to have snow again monday for another few days.

I would give anything to live somewhere that got snow like that!:cry:

We just had out first good snow fall of 2012 and I tell ya...I don't miss the stuff! lol

That's a great way to ride out the snow! :thumb1: I have a lot of relatives down in NC. When I was real young (about 30 yrs ago), they came up to visit and my grandmother sees a plow and says to my dad, "what y'all use something like that for". I found that pretty amusing at the time. I just have to figure out why the tranny on this 2nd gen overheats if I use the plow!!!!!!!!!
