I haven't posted anything to my blog in almost a full month. I've been busy with unpacking and minor home repairs. I can't work on my motorcycles because they're still in a storage locker a few miles from my house.
For the last 2 days, I've spent the better part of the day trying to clear out my driveway. We finally got a MAJOR snow fall. I measured anywhere from 16 to 24 inches depending on where in the driveway I measured.

So, setting free my inner geek.....

My driveway is 30'x50'= 1500ft/sqr plus I cleared a horseshoe shaped path that averages 11 feet wide and 145 paces long.

18 paces = 50'(I measured) so,
145 paces = 402.75' Ill say 403'

403'x11'=4433 ft/sqr
1500 ft/sqr of driveway = 5933ft/sqr

5933 times an average depth of 1.75'= 10,382.75 cubic feet of snow moved.

10,382.75 divided by 27 = 384.5 cubic yards of snow

When I was younger I worked for a excavation and demolition company. Our large dump trucks had a 30 cubic yard box on them.

So, did I really move 12.8 dump trucks full of snow with an 8 horsepower snow blower? No wonder I'm sore.

The new house has a wood burning fireplace, so I made a rack to store some wood.

The sunsets up here in the north land are fantastic!

I did do something motorcycle related...
I ordered some Kawasaki body panels in Candy Lime Green.
I'm going to replace the stock black side grills with matching green.

New Grills:

Before Grills...

The "after" shot will have to wait until I can get to the bike!
