Thumbs up Bad time for my snowblower to stop working.....

Luckily it's just a belt. I can get it working again soon.

WOW That is some deep snow and funny shots

I haven't been in snow like that in a looooong time.


I wore shorts and flip flops today

Those pics bring back some chilling memories


If I open my door & see something like that I close the door, turn right around, head for a comfortable seat & hope I have a weeks worth of guitar strings in the house

If I were a snow blower with that much work to do I'd also give up.

That sucks!! What caused the belt to break, is the snow really heavy?

Re: Bad time for my snowblower to stop working.....

The snow is very dense and heavy because it's drifted from strong winds. but I had recently replaced the belts as a preventative measure. The old ones were getting worn and I think they sold me belts that were too short. They seemed awefully tight but I just figured that was because they were new.
I wish spring would come already.

We're not getting too much of it. Just a couple of inches I think.

Re: Bad time for my snowblower to stop working.....

Jersey's got the warm day we had yesterday. Tomorrow they will be back to cold (the storm is here now).

Our snow total is something like 4-5 times more than normal too.

LOL, I was just looking at the weather network and looks like you guys might be getting more over night. Were going to get the freezing rain, so will probably lose power. Nova Scotia Power sucks, were always losing it.
