At an appointment I was at yesterday a guy said he’d rather take the snow and cold over the heat and humidity they experienced in St Augustine, in the middle of June.

Hey, dummy, there’s a whole fucking ocean you could have jumped into to cool off.

My buddy's dad just brought this thing home. He was going to use the engine for a gokart, but the snowblower runs too well to destroy - so he's trading it to another guy we know for his shittier snowblower. The pictures don't do it justice, this thing is huge.

I would even exaggerate the "forecasted" vs reality numbers even more than that. That's what happens when uneducated people are using ad revenue as their motivation on the forecasting models instead of actually caring to inform the public about the reality of the situation.

I think they still have to over exaggerate to remain relevant. I only follow NWS because they're about as believable as a politician for our forecasts but almost always over exaggerate snowfall and severe weather just like everyone else.

Don’t get me wrong I hope we get dumped on. I want to brap all fucking day in the snow. But we have gotten the shaft for years now.

When the FB page those ISC guys were new and only had a few thousand followers they used to be accurate and realistic. Once they gained popularity it was a mess of bullshit, every forecast would be littered with negative comments because they blew everything out of proportion for no other reason than attracting ad revenue. I can't believe they still have over 300k followers, just shows how stupid and brainwashed people are these days.

Put the plow on this evening, had it all mounted and noticed one of the carriage bolts that hold the cutting edge on, had sheared off. The only thing I can think of was hitting the curbing on the island in our court as I was shoving it up and tripping the mouldboard. Otherwise, really odd and not sure how that would sheer. Thankfully I had some back up bolts as I purchased quite a few when I put the backdrag edge on and had to go longer than the necessary bolt for just a normal cutting edge.
