    here's some pics of the Chrismas Blizzard of 2009!! taken in Hastings, Ne. We had approximately 6-7" of snow, with winds gusts as high as 60mph yesterday!! Created alot of drifting. Took us 3hrs. to snowblow our driveway.

    LMAO!! Sorry bro, but I own a FORD!! That's my neighbor's Chevy!! LOL!! Matter of fact, my Ford Sport-Trak pulled out a Chevy Tahoe yesterday. The Tahoe got stuck trying to pull out another Chevy 4x4!! Idiots got stranded in front of our house when leaving a Christmas party!! Heck, I made $20!! To bad there wasn't more getting stuck by us.!!:roll_eyes:

    My first ride was a 1983 ford single cab 4x4. Bought it for $300. It was dubbed the bondo bandit. The body had puddy around the cab corners and when driveind down the road bondo would fall off when I hit a pot hole. But the four wheel drive worked great. Never got caught in the snow or mud, as long as i wasn't being a bumb a$$.

    No kiding Mark:big_smile: I gues I will have to stop complaining I got up at 3 in the morning it was in the lower 50 no wind whats so ever and thought it is freezing! LOL:smile2:
    Please excuse my ignorance but a snowblower is it almost like a leaf blower;was just wondering.

  14. Thanks for the pics!!!!:roll_eyes:

    Ahh, the old Ramcharger, I had a 85 with a 360 that I installed a HEI and Computer carb off a gm, along with a cam, that baby screamed.:big_smile:

    Hate Fords, had GM's and Dodges. Got a 89 Suburban right now.

    How's this for a redneck Caravan! All terrains, Air horns, led's, pulled that 19 Fiberglass boat up the local snow covered ramp, just had to steer back and forth, haha, that was a great vehicle, even hauled the quad in the back of it.:smile2:
     
  15. ...and here is my brother's, very fun to cruise around in.:big_smile:

    In a way it is. It's like a snow vacuum, with a rotating blade the picks up the snow and slings it out a spout. Gas operated! Our's is a 7hp. with a 24" cut Snapper.. Wishing today we owned a bigger Snowblower!! Could of used it!! LOL!

    I know the feeling Brother,I live in Northwest Missouri approximately 1 and 1/2 miles off the Interstate I-29 out in the Country. I have 5 foot snow drifts in our Country road. Waiting for the County to come plow us out. Hope not to have an emergency between now and when they plow,cause we'd be in a world of hurt. Blasted country roads and even worse Blasted County!!:angry:
