    I got the trans back together and back in the Willy's so it's a nice snowy, blowy 12F day so took it for a spin up and down the runway. The Model A needs the steering box rebuilt so got that started and backed it out of the hangar and the Jeep and the A switched places after a few takeoff runs down the runway with the A. Never got airborne but my face felt like I got to 30,000 feet.

    Interesting day, 30" so far in less then 13 hrs. Still coming down hard. Up to my crotch trying to walk. Did my stress test spending over 2 hrs clearing the hangar roor and if it keeps snowing will do it again at 10 pm. Reminds me of Valentine's day 07 when we got 40" in 24 hrs. Town just pulled the 1950 Walter V double winger out of retirement and the driver that retired 5 years ago to drive it.





    Let it snow

    Wow that's a lot of snow Glenn. It extends ski season for you.

    Our low low elevation snow is close to gone and I pulled my skis this week.

    Saphouse







    We did have a Sport Cub this time, came all the way from VT. Those Summits work great in that deep snow. Local demo CC still without skis so a no-show even after we now have had snow for almost 5 months

    Sagamore camp



    Raquette





    Awesome day

    You lazy wheeled guys are missing my some great ski flying this weekend





    We needed a little sled help for Daves Super Cub on Summits to get off today. The lighter Cubs on straight Federals did ok



    Whitetails on Otsego Lk





    Almost screwed up landing back home, 44f and sunny makes 2+ feet of glue. I was down and still going when it took off going left when the skis caught the next drift and like a dummy I got off the throttle and it went left even harder so full right rudder and full power to get the tail back up and the left wing only mowed down a few pussy willows before it came back out of the ditch. One problem with a tailski is if it get in he wrong track behind you your going where it sends you till you can get the tail back up



    On a light Cub like mine a tailski is a catch 22. The plus is it keeps the tail up, the bad is my tail is so light I need to keep air flowing over my tail to keep from nosing over in this glue and when it settles in the wrong track you need to lift the tail so you can steer without going over



    Gear is pushing alot of wet snow



    Another awesome day in upstate NY

    Is that a lot of snow for April in your area Glenn? It sure would be for us in the valley. Ours is 99% gone in the open although there is still some in the trees. Up high we're still getting fresh snow though.

    This was March 9th, we've lost a lot of snow in the last 3 weeks.
