Manila or nylon?

Nylon of some sort.

 

I actually got this rope when I bought a piano a decade back. 
The seller insisted on maneuvering the uhaul I rented next to his porch and only managed to get it stuck in the mud at the far end of his yard.

The sellers uncle came over and pulled out the uhaul with his truck and this rope.

Once we got the piano loaded up the guy insisted on helping to tie the piano in place with his rope because he thought all the ratchet straps I had wouldn’t be enough.


The piano is long gone but I still rescue a few cars a year during snow season with that rope.

Supposed to warm up a bit then rain, then a major snowstorm is supposed to come down and hang over the state.  8-10, 12-14 predicted.  Sounds like fun but I'm good just hangin out til spring!    :)   Ohio the heart of it all.  😂

Good luck with it @dirtmudd!  Going to hole up here for a few days too.  This is the same way the blizzard of '78 happened in Ohio.  60 degrees the day before then the front hammered us.  Stay safe!

Park in a garage or have an engine block heater.

When I was in Thule Greenland for a year at -40F for six months they would put kerosene in the radiators, a plywood sheet in front of the radiator or the engine would never warm up, battery heater, head heater, plastic stick um sheets on the inside of the windows as the defrosters were useless, when parked outside never shut the engine off or it will never start again, 4 wheel drive is mandatory as the grease freezes the wheel bearings and it takes 1/4 mile to unlock them, transmission fluid into all the differentials, and chains on all four wheels. These chains would occasionally let go at 50 mph on sand covered ice roads and leave shrapnel holes in the fenders.

Looks like about 6" down now, drives plowed shut, 23 degrees and it's expected to put down about an inch an hour this afternoon.  Then 40mph winds.  Interesting  :)  Wait and hit it or hit it today and again in the morning or let it go.  Think I'll play it safe and break out that blower and git-er- done in a while.  Zero traffic tells me that the morons MIGHT have smartened up.
