  • Too Wet To PLOW!
  • Just today, I learned "it`s Too Wet To Plow"...
    I`ve heard that saying for years, but today I tried plowing, and it IS Too Wet To Plow... :D

  • I gig get it broke up, but hadto go back across the at 90 degree angle ;)
    Then went to the second field and drew up water, so I quit for now on those fields what`re wet...
    About the time it gets dry enough, another thunderstorm comes along...
    Had lightning strike a dead pine and exploded it back on the 11th of last month, I`d never seen nothing like that!!!

  • Dad would say too wet to plow and too windy to haul rocks.

  • The only plowing we are doing in Michigan right now is for snow. We had a few more inches yesterday and AM temp were -5F with wind chills making it -12F. This morning it was +5F. It is going to be another 2-3 months before you can even think about doing any ground breaking work.

  • About 1970 (memory gap) I plowed a one acre piece on March 1. It was 70+ degrees. St. Patricks Day, in 1973, we were leaving to go to Disney World in a rented 25' motor home. Normal drive time to Cincinati is about 4.5 hours. We had 12" of snow on the ground and it took 9 hours in a blinding storm the whole way.
    I never plowed after that until early to mid-April.

  • Say it ain't so.
    A few weeks ago the wife jumped on the 21000 pound D-4 Cat. After the mud was coming up and she was headed down, she gave up. Full power reverse and got out'a the mud hole she made. It got parked and there it sits. I sure hope she will enjoy cleaning it up later this year.
    Meanwhile I am working on the Cat 54 winch o the back of it and trying to get educated on that. Then she will have 168 feet of 3/4" winch cable to pull it out.

  • The county I grew up in in central MN has more swamps, bogs, lakes and rivers than it does high ground.
    Folks there used to say the bogs, etc were "Too thick to swim in and too thin to plow."

  • Would have a hard time plowing here too! It was minus 21 this morning. Too cold to even plow snow.

  • Central VA was a warm and toasty 17 this morning. At least it's sunny. Maybe the "feels like" is even warmer. Break out the short pants and swim trunks, it's almost spring.
