    I think we're gonna miss it up north. With all this rain and the warm temps, I just don't see it coming. I was just posting in another thread, looking at weather maps, the jetstream is holding all of the cold Canadian air up north, which is keeping things warm (including the lake, which last I checked was something like 7-8 degrees above average). However, I have a bad feeling in my gut that when that jetstream shifts a little and that cold air gets blasted over the warm lake, watch out! I think we're gonna be in for it sooner or later, but not this storm.

    I hear Don Paul bought a new pair of sneakers because he wore out the old ones from back peddling so much.

    Nothing!

    Going out to salt sidewalks tonight, but I was actually looking forward to plowing. Oh well.

    Well looks like a salt run around 5:00 am for a commercial Med. center account. and a few sprinkles of CaCl around the entrance for effect. That makes a total of 2 for the season.

    I did toss the blade on to move it into the shop.....Just in Case!!!

    Might have to treat my self to a JJ's breakfast after all that hard work. HAHAHAHA.

    I did fire up the Toro and have to wonder why no one makes an aftermarket muffler /stealth kit for those noisy ass things.
