This week at Casey: 30 May 2014

Last week I made a new friend: Herman Nelson. Herman is generally full of hot air but he is the kind of guy that when it’s cold, windy, snowing and you have a tractor that doesn’t want to start, will lend a hand to get it going.

Last week Steve Mc and I went to A08 to pick up two snow blowers and the loader, and it took all day to accomplish half the task mainly because the loader didn’t want to start. After finally getting the loader going and loading the snow blowers onto the float we decided to come back the next day to pick up the loader.

The next day we went back and with the help of the generator to warm the batteries and engine again and my new friend Herman Nelson to blow some hot air up the intake, the loader started first go and we were home in time for lunch.
