We finally got our first measurable snow here in Northeast Nebraska. About 6". It is also the first time I got to try out the new snow pusher. Hope the rest of the country was able to get something out of this storm. Sorry, no action shots of me pushing snow. I couldn't convince the wife to get up and come into town with me to take the photos.

It's funny, this year whenever they have been calling for a bad snowstorm it never happens. We ended up getting rain or ice. This time they had it downgraded to a 20% chance for snow for Saturday and Sunday with accumulations of no more than a 1/2 inch each day. And this was on Friday evening and into Saturday they(NOAA) were saying this. The next thing I know around 9:00 or 10:00 a.m on Sunday they were telling us 5-8 inches. I should just shut my mouth and be thankful we got some snow.

It is a QuickAttach brand pusher. It is their 1st or second year of making them. It is an 8 ft. I am going to make several changes to it regarding the cutting edge and skid shoe adjustment. Other than that it is a very well and heavy built attachment.

It's an 8ft. box. I probably could have gone bigger but I like the smaller size because I drive the skid loader to different jobs and places around town.

His name was Jack McCormick. He did kill him self. Too bad, he was one hell of a guy, and a great pilot.
