We were making the rounds this week wrapping up multiple cabinet projects. Monday was a cabin in Kamas and today was both a house in Heber and a cabin in Sundance (Fun fact: Robert Redford owns Sundance Resort and hosts the Sundance Film Festival. Although most of the festivities are held in Park City. Sundance is a rather modest size resort.)
Sundance cabin: New/reconstruction, cabin is being built new on the site of an old family cabin. The old cabin was run down and was done in by a small land slide. 4" of fresh snow.

Nice. You're right that the Toro will easily take care of most of the work around here. Still gotta keep that two-stage around for those occasional storms.Ready for a snowmageddon! Well, kinda. Waiting on parts for the 2-stage (orange Ariens), and I have cabs to install for both of them. Just picked up the Toro on Black Friday to tide me over until I can fix the gearbox on the Ariens - need to remove a bolt that snapped on the gear case, and based on reports, I'll be needing to do some serious work to get everything apart, so I've got a new gear assembly, roll pins & impeller ready to go in so that I'm up and operational, and I can beat the old parts into submission (hopefully). Worst case scenario, I've got all new parts in, and I gotta scrap the old rusted stuff. Best case scenario, I've got a whole new assembly I can swap out to allow me to regrease and refurb at my leisure. Based on my needs, I'm thinking the Toro is gonna end up taking care of 75% of my snow removal needs anyway.

I'm giving it a thumbs up because Zipper is getting to drive the tractor, I'd like to come up and use the snow blower one day, "hey kid, you stand right there for a second and close your eyes!" (just for one day though),
Funny. I'm just the opposite. In the spring of the year, when the thermometer starts climbing over 75, I start melting.Been a Southern boy all my life. Keep that white stuff away from me unless I have skis on my feet and even then I can only deal with it for a few days!!!! I relish the fact that I can go out and shoot a 79 at my club on Dec. 3!!!
I enjoyed my 10HP 2 stage snowblower after a huge dumping of snow....but I don't miss it one bit! I love that Raleigh shuts down when it snows, and that the plan for snow is ..... "don't worry, it'll be gone soon!" Pulled the boat off its lift in November and will likely have it back in the water in April or May. Envious of those who boat year round!Funny. I'm just the opposite. In the spring of the year, when the thermometer starts climbing over 75, I start melting.
I guess when you grow up with 250" per year of the White S*!T you develop a lot of INDOOR hobbies! (One guy I knew set up a pistol range in his BASEMENT!)
I'll admit that I'm ready for it to end by the time February rolls around. At least here in WI you start seeing the light at the end of the tunnel by mid February. Up in Da U.P. of Michigan you're still looking forward to the second half of the season. (Hence the obsession with snow blowers!)
Many years ago, we moved to Durham, lived there for 3+ years. 3 snow events in those years, 1", 2", and TWENTY TWO inches! When that 22" fell, it was the biggest snowfall in 90-some-odd years. I was driving home from work, wondering why the heck everyone was off on the side of the road since they all seemed like they didn't slide off the road, but did so purposefully. Got pulled over by law enforcement, was questioned as to why I was out driving around, and said I was headed home from work. I was asked if I had heard that the roads were shut down and people were not supposed to be driving, so as to conserve law enforcement resources. I told him I didn't know why everyone had stopped right where they were, since it would be a lot more of an issue for anyone out on the road, such as myself, who didn't have any problem driving in this weather, since I was from Wisconsin and was used to this. I was handed back my license, was told to be careful on the rest of my drive home, and to be careful for the locals. I guess my accent helped me out in that instance! LOLI love that Raleigh shuts down when it snows, and that the plan for snow is ..... "don't worry, it'll be gone soon!"
