Snow looks good we only got about half of what you guys did here ( north of detroit ). The wind made it seem as if there was a foot at my condos! Does your new holland have a block heater? I have a had to take a heat gun to my gelled filters to get it started. I am now running diesel 911 fuel additive and using my block heater. If I plug it in the glow plugs do not even cycle.

What a small world! I live about just north from that currency exchange in Bolingbrook. Aside from some of the apartment complex pictures I felt like I was on a tour of the area LOL.
