Ruger: Model 19122 pc 9
I have an acre of it that you can have and could probably arrange for more. You will have to arrange for transportation but the snow is free!I would love some snow. 🤑
You and the Mrs stay safe my friend ...We still haven't gotten the 'big' winds that were called for (still in the forecast) but did manage to lose electric power for another 3 1/2 hours starting shortly after 'sundown' (like we could see any sun with it snowing all day). I said to my wife that there should be a Coleman Lantern near 'her' (used to be mine) chair in the living room. She went (in the other direction) out to the front hallway, where she has piled so much stuff that I can't even get down it anymore, and came back with the new unused one I bought a few years ago after we had been without power for a couple of days, of course she brought it piece by piece, then didn't seem to understand that it would need a propane tank (we have a bunch, in the kitchen). I suggested again that there was one under the table by her chair, probably covered in her pile of books and magazines. Surprise, surprise, she did some digging and came back with that one as well. This after me having heard banging in the kitchen earlier in the afternoon, several times, I don't know how you make a lot of noise in the kitchen but that wasn't too unusual. Went out there to see what she was doing and ... she wasn't there. Looked out the back door and saw her laying in the entryway, apparently the middle of a snowstorm was the proper time to go out in the back yard and put out some feed for the lame turkey (besides her) that has been hanging around for a couple of months, she didn't make it far and crawled back to the entryway. I haven't walked much without a cane since I tried to pick her up after she slid off of the couch and onto the floor last Spring, and I knew that our ambulance crew was already running all over town with other emergencies so ... She finally listened enough to get rolled over and on to her knees and we got her standing again. After all of that I got both lanterns running and we had light and (some) heat so things stayed reasonable in the house. If she had a 'finest hour' today it was before she woke up! Friends came back by to plow and clear off our truck, we have lights, heat and a well pump once again but I am waiting to see if we start it all over again before the storm moves out around sunrise.
I used to see Winter as a challenge to be met, now I just hope to survive it.
Hell at 48" wide I can have my driveway cleared in two passes. One down and one up, only problem is I don't know if I've got enough mass in my ass to push all that snow ... sigh ... hopefully the snow coming in Tuesday night into Wednesday is a dry puffy kind that the non green energy burning snowblower will be able to handle ...It blowed snow here all day but nothing stuck to the ground ; Got lucky this time but we're in for it this Tuesday night into Wednesday . I just got a nice snow blower this past fall so I Will definitely get a chance to see how it works . The wifey is really good to me she said I'm getting old and doesn't like to see me work as hard as I do and I thanked her ans said I wouldn't know what to do with out her always looking out for me ...
Here's a pic of one just like it mine is hanging up in the garage . I figured hey what the heck I would share with you fine people ..

I have ... the stuff was so slushy it didn't help ... I've talked to friends and they had the same issuesspray the chute down with WD40 and let er rip!
I have had the bad luck to blow slushy stuff at just the right temperature that it froze hard in the rotor and that was it, done for the day. We have 5-8 coming tomorrow, ready to go in the morning!I have ... the stuff was so slushy it didn't help ... I've talked to friends and they had the same issues
Well, ya live where it does that in the winter. I'd think it wouldn't be that big of a deal. It snowed here yesterday morning off and on for 6 hours. When it snows in the Desert, Now That's a big deal!I got about 4 total, but only like 1" on drive and walk way stuck. It was 36 degrees most of the day! Maybe I just got lucky this time!
That is exactly what was happening ...I have had the bad luck to blow slushy stuff at just the right temperature that it froze hard in the rotor and that was it, done for the day. We have 5-8 coming tomorrow, ready to go in the morning!
