    The western states are in for some major weather this weekend! They are saying we could see up to 4' of snow here in Colorado. I know what that means... Get your pinball projects lined up man cuz you gonna be home for awhile! What you guys planning on doing. I just got an AFM and sure hope my parts get here before the storm.

    Our February snow in Delaware just melted, supposed to be 70 tomorrow. Good luck in the fluff!

    Yeah, but it will be a comin your way soon enough. Maybe not as snow, maybe somethin much worse... lots and lots moisture.

    #6 10 months ago

    I grew up in Denver and know that the March snow's are the worst. Wet, heavy snow snapping the trees and collapsing patios and carports. Then when it gets suddenly warm, it all instantly melts and you get flooding. Good luck to our front range pinballers and hopefully it won't be too bad.

    #7 10 months ago

    Guess we will see. They are talking 1-4 feet so not looking forward to the shoveling.

    #8 10 months ago

    Good luck & hope you don't get that 4' of snow to shovel / remove! It reached 67 degrees today in the far west suburbs of Chicago (near Rockford) today. We had a warm snap for a week or so and all of our snow has almost completely melted. I really hope that if your storm comes to us, it is in the form of rain!

    #9 10 months ago

    It was warm here today too. The warm before the storm!

    #10 10 months ago

    Well, certainly not here in Missouri. We are just going to get almost an inch of rain everyday for the next several days. Can't plant grass seed yet, because it will get washed away.

    My back already hates me. It's gonna be the like shoveling water

    Hopefully this helps with the drought you were in before. Maybe not an issue anymore, can't keep up.

    Quoted from RyanStl:

    The problem here is this damn thing will drop three feet of snow, then we won't see any significant moisture cycle for months. The drought continues...
    I have a nice snow mover up at my place in the mountains but nothin but a shovel down here in town. At least it's an orange shovel.

    Bring it on, I've put away my snowboard. Time for the rains to melt the snow and fill the steep creeks so I can break out my kayak!

    Who is this?

    Thats my 12 year old daughter. She had to climb in there.

    Thats the age I got my first guitar. I would recommend going to a second hand instrument shop and finding her an old Telecaster and distortion pedal.
    She can start a garage band called Colorado Dozer or something. Skip lessons, just make noise until it starts sounding good.

    #19 10 months ago

    Good luck man!!! We got bombed pretty bad this season ,but not 4 feet at one time. I worry about the roofs and decks that get hit with that much weight.

    #20 10 months ago

    Picked up a JP pro yesterday to mess with. I run a main street business here in CO and enjoy watching snow days on main at work with a cozy faux fireplace.

    #21 10 months ago

    Looking forward to it, going to buy some stew meat at Sam's Club for some stew and beans for some chili. Kids school will probably be closed Monday, so we have some new sleds to try out-looking to send my son off a 4 foot jump in a saucer sled-and watch the yard sale.

    #22 10 months ago

    I know I am.

    Good suggestion! She already attends a school for the Arts.

    Yeah the last time this happened at the level they are saying this one will unfold was March 2003. We got 32” here in town and we got eight feet at our place in the mountains (Idaho Springs) Thats why the backhoe is standing by!

    #26 10 months ago

    I am done with shoveling snow. Moving soon. Will leave the snow blower, snow shovels, and a riding and push mower behind. Goal is to never need one again.

    Also, my son is in Central City/Black Hawk working at a casino there this week. Fortunately, he flies out of Denver around noon on Friday.

    #27 10 months ago

    We need it. Bring it on!

    You forgot shoveling.... and sniveling, gettin the car stuck, puttin that transmission in that you have been puttin off. Watching your gutters fall off the house because you blew off cleaning them in the fall. Oh well looky there, damn car has a flat tire in the snow! They never go flat on a nice day noooo...

    Still waiting for the blizzard. The weather guessers are stickin to their story but as of 6:00 pm this morning we have an inch and a half. They promise it’s coming! Anyway got some nice work done on my Attack From Mars. Replaced the side rails, disassembled cleaned and added new lift trim for the back box, solved a rogue saucer hit issue, printed some apron cards,
    Removed a bent lock mech for the lock bar
    To straighten. She is starting to look and act like a nice machine now. Just need that colordmd...

    Were the side rails easy to do? I have to switch out the ones on my Dr. Dude and I am weary of doing it.

    Stay safe in the snow!

    Finally some snow! Maybe 8” so far. Really coming down now though and blowing around.

    It is not difficult. But you need to use some heat. I use a hairdryer. I use two scrapers. One plastic and one metal. I heat the old rail until it just gets too hot to touch. Then slip the plastic scraper under the rail pushing the adhesive and separating it from the machine side. Then slip in the metal scraper on top of the plastic one. Pull up slightly on the metal one and continue to heat the rail as you work toward the back of the machine. Work about 5 inches at a time. Once you heat the area pull the scrapers out and repeat til the rail comes off. Work slow til you get the hang of it.

    Holy Smokes It’s snowin now! Finally! I still will take feet of snow over the softball sized hail this thing is forecasted to deliver to all points east of here. I already lost one vehicle to that kinda thing a few years ago.
    I bought the severely hail damaged vehicle back from the insurance company and kept driving it. Once I took a trip back east, someone asked “what happened to your vehicle”. I replied “we are from Colorado all our vehicles look like this”.
