Crossing my fingers heater is big enough to get tractor thawed out. Everywhere is sold out of bigger trash can heaters.

First round snow cleared, 5" and it snowed 3" more while I was out there.

I'm lov'n the new snowblower I bought. What a difference over the 40-Year Old Ariens and that's a good machine as well.

Done clearing out. Snow just about over. Just a lot of wind to deal with.

10” here. Land lord cleaned up with the tractor, sure does make it easy. The puppy dog certainly liked the snow today. Could hardly get him to come back inside!

I made it until 3 then had to head out to keep Kyle from going crazy. I'm impressed with how my mtz p3 performed in the snow. Flew around back roads and rt 2 without any problems.

I came in at 8, did a few remote starters, and went home around noon.  Back at the shop now working on the Jeep.

Since there was no travel ban, had to go in this morning. They put us all on the road. Left the center in Hartford at 9:45 AM...got to my delivery area in Berlin around 10:30 (normally a 15 minute drive). Took care of the Critical Healthcare deliveries and some relatively flat neighbor hoods. All the businesses on Farmington Ave. in Berlin were closed except CVS, DD & Stop & Shop. Got a message at 2:17 to head back in...why we went out to begin with is beyond me. UPS trucks suck in the snow...Think I'd rather drive the corvette in the snow...

Mine is friction disc too, but it is engaged by a belt. Check that all the springs are in place as well.
