Well, "Snow Week - 2018 Edition" seems to finally be over, and our total for the week is around 15-18". We had a final 3-5" drop on us last night, and once the last band of snow moved out and the sun came out, I got to work. I'd plowed four times already this week with the 8N and back blade, so the driveways were getting almost too narrow to be of any use, so the Boomer 8N came out to do some serious snow relocation.



I ended up with four large piles (approx. 5' tall) like the one in the pic above by the time I was done.



I ran the Boomer in 4WD assist, as in 2WD, it was spinning about half the time, and that before I even tried to push snow. It did fine in 4WD assist, although wheel weights or chains would definitely have helped.



I actually started with the 8N first, to get the middle of the driveways cleared out, then used the loader tractor to start piling it up where most of the gravel mixed in the snow would settle out on an already-gravelled area. I'll still be raking gravel come Spring, though!



Somewhat OT, but yesterday, I hauled my cow over to a friend with a bull, but first we went by the sale barn to pick up two heifers he bought on Friday. I had trained my cow to eat a flake of nice alfalfa up in the trailer every morning, so she loaded herself at my place before I left. I did use the 8N to clear a path out of my pasture, but even with that, almost got stuck trying to angle the trailer to get out the gate. Once at my friend's farm, I had to back the trailer up a fairly steep hill to where we were unloading - took a couple tries to get it up the hill and in the hole!



Back at my place, and after finishing up my snow today, I took a walkabout around the farm, which is always nice in the snow on a calm wind day.



There's a different kind of snow plow sitting in my row of 'yard art'…



And with that, my day is done. Bet I'll sleep good tonight!

showcrop, The Mississippi river has an affect on our weather in sw Wisconsin. I can track a rain storm on radar making its way across Iowa. After it crosses the river it begins to break up. That river has cheated us out of a lot of rain.

Back east here it appears that there are natural geographic factors that determine weather. The upper wind currents affect the temperature greatly. This just slowly varies. The cold comes south either in the midwest or the east. The moisture is affected greatly by lake effect. Locally to me here in NH the high ground that runs north-south mid state affects where the moisture comes out of the clouds. The west slope, high ground, and east slope get a lot more rain than the lower ground to the east. You can often watch the green radar masses fall apart once they lose elevation as they move east.

L Fure,

I know it sounds like a contradiction but drought or excessive precip it is still Geoengineering. In the Spring and summer up here and as in Eds photos there will be a silver film making for filtered sun and a pale blue sky. Even though under a blazing sun, that thin veil goes nowhere because it is not condensation byt metallic particulate. If there are no natural colouds around for the Barium to seed, then the Aluminum oxide and Barium (both nano-sized particles) have the effect of leaching every bit of moisture from the atmosphere. Aluminum is one of the constituents of deodorants. They made the claim, "by 2020 we will own the weather." but they own it now . . . at least they manipulate the snot out of it. Look it up.

They can also steer weather fronts now like keeping any natural clouds (that could bring rain) away from the coast of California.

There's a site called "weatherwars.org or com) that shows sattelite imagery of how it is all accomplished.

Watch the video of aircraft pilots and various professionals meeting at a town hall in Shasta County trying to get Geoengineering stopped.

This video is also at geoengineeringwatch.org.

SHASTA COUNTY

I know one of the gents in this video, Mark McCandlish who explained the seeding to me.

Nice pictures Ed S. Send some of that snow my way, I just got a rear pull type snowblower for my 9N yesterday so I'm itchin' to use it. I ended up going into the snowbanks yesterday just so I could try it out.

Tall T,

We could have used that stuff in the summers of 1988-89. Two years of severe drought with temperatures in the 100's. Ruined a lot of farmers in our area.

Ed,

It saddens me that you don't see the obvious, graphic signs of Nasa's stratospheric Geoengineering in most of your photos and the going round and round about the uncharacteristic weather.

It is all heavier than air so it descends to the natural cloud layer.
The main constituents of the aerosol are Aluminum Oxide, Barium and Strontium, The Barium is a natural seeder of clouds, working exactly the same as Silver Iodide.

Up here it the seeding translates into incessant rain. There into snow.

Go to

geoengineering

and compare the photos there to your skies.

I am using about 1 GPH plowing with my diesel JD4044M and my older Gas Fords and Massey's were close to that also. Will see how it does using a 6 ft brush hog on about 40 acres of pasture this spring?

My Kubota moves snow effortlessly with an oversized bucket. I do my digging jobs mostly in the fall, and leave the 'hoe on through the winter for weight. Never even thought about chains or more weight.

We’re about an hour South of I-80... for whatever reason, all the bands of snow this week tracked straight over us every time.

I checked the radar map and it looks like you will get a reprieve from snow storms for awhile. All the snow that has been going south of us must have been hitting you. We'll be seing warmer temperatures starting later this week. How far from the Wisconsin border are you?

Let's hope it's over Ed! Somehow, I doubt it.

I burned over 5 gallons of gas through the 3000 today
just "idling" along using the blade. It burns more, obviously,
running the snowblower at PTO speed but the blade took
more time so it ended up using more gas than normal.

(bright side note - used no oil)

Luckily I haven't had to get the loader out yet.

Especially since I didn't put the winter clothes on it this year!

Your pictures are awesome as always.
I particularly like that last one. Day over!
