265 posts in this topic

I found this little guy in my backyard last night. I hope it's a sign of good things to come!post-5452-134996325402.jpg

Last year I saw one of these but all black and we see where that went.

I'm going to say yes. Based purely on the fact that I do not own one and just moved into our new house that has a mile long driveway :unsure:

I have a very important question regarding this upcoming winter...

Will I be able to finally use my brand new snowblower? :)

You still have it? I thought you sold it and downsized to a sweeper? ;).

I rubbed my snowblower last winter and we know how that turned out so no rubbing this season.

I rubbed my pole last night and we know how that turned out so no rubbing this season.

It sounds like you are confident, so works for me. :)

:lol:

Yes still have it (no downsize). It still has not seen snow, but plenty of dust though.

I am going to start getting my snowblower ready for action early next month in a defiant show of force to Team Torch and their operatives in the upper atmosphere...:devilsmiley:

She has not seen action since Feb 2011, and went into a state of deep depression towards the end of last "winter"...Her hopeful looks at me each time I went into the garage eventually turned into long glares as the season dragged on. Hoping to let her run around and play this year...

I wonder if my snow thrower can start. :unsure:

Hopefully you do not have gas sitting in it without a fuel stabilizer added in. I learned that the hard way!

I let mine run until it ran out of gas at the end of the '11 season...I learned that the hard way with my weed wacker. I had to take the carburetor apart and clean it. Now I use Stabil with all the outdoor engines...

i never used a fuel stabilizer and never had a problem with mowers, etc.

I think it largely depends on the amount of ethanol in the gas you're using and/or how long the gas has been sitting there...

Last three winters have given me some new found respect for the NAO which in the northeast I should have had all along. So, yes anything outside of the tropics that we can glean will help more than average given the state of the nino.

Jack's :( NF pool: Pos NAO

Your box TBD

Recurving tropics: I think neutral

Eurasian snowcover TBD

There's another one related to the Japaneses N/S SST Diploe, it's amazing and precurses the with a 22-23 months lead on Winter... Near 0.7 Correlation coef in that one, could be related to the Kuroshio current lead impact on the NP Trenberth region.. Just a theory..

How many times have these all pointed in the same direction? I'm guessing some, but not all. The CFS2 is looking more enso neutral all the time.

Mine started today on first try. :tomato:

I told it not to get its hopes up this year. I'd probably sell the damn thing if it wasn't given to me for free by my father-in-law.

It's a John Deere which sells for close to 1K.

Mine started too, with early 2011 gas in it; I guess I'd rather be lucky than good.
