Bout time! We had been hammered since 08/09 & 10/11 was no picnic
either! 08/09 set an all time record with nearly 9 feet of snow! I even had
to shovel a "run & potty area" for my beagle puppy as he had to "porpoise"
his way thru the snow! That was the same time I worked swingshift & had
to force my way thru 3 feet of snow into my driveway with a failed water
pump! What a pain it was to change-out a poorly rebuilt w/p in those
conditions! (But at least "Ol Mater" got me home)! It has only been towed
twice in it's lifetime thanks to an electrical short & when it threw # 3 rod
@ 289k hardworking miles! My 1982 f-150 4x4 has a 1984 rebuilt 300 ci 6
cyl engine with barely over 50k miles & a wiring replacement!
Well I have done that twice when I should have used a "cheater bar"! But,
I have dislocated it twice "Ala" Clint Eastwood style in the movie "Thunder
-bolt & Lightfoot" from 1974 & used a leather belt much the same way to
"fix it"! After that, I bought much larger pipewrenches & cheaterbars!
