All those dang travelin Yankees brought the cold down here to Florida man. I am currently wearing a sweat shirt and my big Carhartt jacket, and it's still cold. Thanks mom and dad for moving to the coldest fricken county in the state of Florida.

EXACTLY. if the wind is from north or east we get lake effect as well. Thats how we got all the snow we did the week of the 12th. Good two days of white out conditions to the point the road commission and sheriff's dept pulled off the road. got a good foot of snow i would say. mix that was the 20-40mph winds, it drifted pretty good

i felt like i had a lil walk behind tank using it today, haha. threw the snow a good 30 feet up and away, along with quite a bit of my driveway. even chewed up a branch that was probibly 2" in diameter like it was nothing finding neutral was a differant story, apparently the linkage is screwed up after being used and abused for about 50 years and the space for neutral is pretty much gone, its eather going forward or in reverse.
