Dropped all the plows and stored with Snow blowers.

Also pulled The Camaro, Trailblazer and LT-4 Vette out.

2wd Arizona Burb is also out getting a hug prior to selling it

I took the snowblower off the tractor on Saturday... nice to get that 6' x 6' of garage space back

It was a good weekend to change seasons.  I ran the snowblower out of gas and put it in the storage shed, and swapped the winter tires on the Silverado with the summer shoes I picked up used last Fall from a 2018 Silverado.  I like the more modern look and proved to myself that I can get the truck on the lift.  Barely...but it worked just fine with enough room to get underneath with a chair if needed.

Definitely the warmest Easter Sunday I can remember in my 20 years in MN.

You guys are ALL just tempting Mother Nature to dump on us 1 more time. It was only 3 years ago, we got like 14" of snow in April...tsktsk

I thought about pulling all the reflectors along the driveway yesterday, but decided to give a nother week or 2.

The power plug on my Boss is a clip lock affair and must have overheated and lost it's grip this winter. I cut off both ends and replaced with a better plug, but the plow is still accessible. It only takes 30 seconds to pick up or drop off the whole plow from the frame carriage, so no big deal to just let it sit outside. I LOVE that self loading feature. Main reason I got a Boss this time.

 I took the snow tires off everything, pulled the driveway markers up, and put the snowblower away. I still have a bucket on the tractor if needed, but this late in the season everything melts off fast enough that it would be an inconvenience for a few days at most, even if we got a big one like we did a few years back.

OK, I'm pulling the driveway markers today...hyper

I put my new, to me, DD into service this week, so no more salt.

Very clean Florida, 2016 CR-V. I brought this back in February.

 That's a good engine. I bought a Toro in 2001 with that engine and ran it 1,000 hours over the next 18 years. I left that for the new owner when we sold, as I bought the JD X156 from the seller of our new place. This one has a liquid cooled Kawasaki twin around 26 hp.
