    We went from 0 to 60 inches of snow over the last few days. If mother nature won't bring it, we will just make it. :)

    There is actually way more snow than it looks like. All the neighbor kids love it when the snow guns come out !!! My brother figures that in 25 hours we turned 28,000 gallons of water into the whilte stuff !!! It all came from a spring fed pond so there were no worrys of draining it. It is a bit of a head turner when people drive by :dizzy:

    Some people have to much time on their hands :nod:. LOL
    How often do you make snow? I bet all the kids do love it. Was the equipment expensive?

    Even think of shooting it at the neighbors driveway so they are stuck:laughing:...I would.

    Nice, are you on snowguns.com as well? I've got a similar gun, not as much output though.

    Yeah the kids love the snow. My brother is a professional fire fighter so he only works 10 days a month. With no real snow and clean ups done there is plenty of time to make the snow ! He is involved with the great lakes burn camp and has made snow several times for their winter camp. The kids can always go sleding even when mother nature doen't help out! The most expensive part of that set being used are the pumps and air compressor. We us 2 hale fire fighting pumps one is 10hp and the other is 18 hp. There is a 1" water line feeding at 120psi. and that is matched with a 1" air line supplying120psi at 70 cfm. The air and water mixture can be adjuster depending on the humidity. I am on snowguns .com but haven't been there in along time. My brother is still active there.

    That would be so cool to have one of those. Your right, bored here with no plowable snow yet this year. If i had one of those, i would the the snow pile up in my driveway just so i could plow it!! Cool pix!!

    Yeah funny what crazy things we come up with to kill time waiting on mother nature !!! I can honestly say I have never made snow just to plow it. It works the skid steer pretty good moving that stuff around. This man made stuff would give a truck a real work out !!!
