Heck yeah! ! This will be an interesting season to say the least.

Do you guys know what the DOT looks for when chaining up? Right now I have all four points covered with chains and ratchet binders.

Depends who you get but usually they want a separate chain on each corner.

I think the chains are supposed to be the heat treated carbon steel variety.

A couple 1" ratchet straps ought to so it. Listen to these guys. Just make sure the chain is stamped on each link. Don't buy the logging chain they have at fleetfarm. They do sell the G70 stuff as well, thats where we buy it. We have a lot of equipment on the road in the summer and get caught up in the DOT inspections all the time. We have a few things with three chains and they have yet to say anything. But the rules do call for four points as Quality said.

Metro under a winter storm watch now. I kinda think the metro may get an 1.5" this afternoon/evening as well. We'll see.

Sooo.... the new watch is out, and in that watch they've already upped the snow totals.

I'm going with 6-10" now, up from 4-6" last night.

Wishful thinking says not too much. For us near Forest Lake they are just calling for snow showers, no accumulation at all.

With the fact I'm running my RTV this year as a "4th" truck (more like 3.5th truck) I'm liking the overnight snow into Sunday.

The area the RTV is at, the truck in the area has 60% of the accounts closed on Sunday, so I can see if after this snowfall if I have to scramble to get another truck or not but I'll have time to get everything done with the 3 trucks if the RTV is a bust.

Ive often noticed a cut off line from 22. Blaine vs Cambridge can usually vary on wide margins.

Seems that a stronger ridge of HP tomorrow is building much better than even the Euro had seen.

Although not sure if the QP isn't over done in favor of snow vs some mix precip on Sunday.


{puts snow tires back on and grabs the roof rake}.
seeing some 14" forecasts around Alex which may expand this away.

I got the chains from Bobcat in Hudson(Tri-State Bobcat). And this is the what they suggested to me & how they do it when they deliver machines. I know I sound like a Rookie about this, but obviously this is my first machine. thanks for all the feed back and I cannot wait to see this machine in action this weekend! ! !
