Re: Snow? Get any and how much

We had maybe 1/2" a week ago, and looking at an inch or 2 overnight/tomorrow, here in Edmonton.

Calgary got a bunch awhile ago, but that's normal because, deep down, they are basically terrible people. :-) Go Oilers.

Re: Snow? Get any and how much

On Thanksgiving,overnight, got only a "dusting" of wet snow NW of Detroit, mostly rainy. Was couple hours NE of Detroit over weekend, rainy but one town got hit with hail and snow. Covered cars but didn't stick. Lower 40s rest of this week, some rain or snow showers is all. Nothing to get the plow out for. Besides, my leaves haven't all come down and the grass is still growing.

Re: Snow? Get any and how much

I bought a x738 a few weeks ago and hooked up the plow over the weekend. We will have no snow this year.

Re: Snow? Get any and how much

TWC app currently says we'll get an inch Thursday night into Friday morning. Last night, they said 1-3. The TV guys aren't committing to anything specific, but don't expect a blockbuster.

South central Mass, BTW.

Re: Snow? Get any and how much

I used my SS-12 to plow a ton of leaves today,rather than rake them--they had piled up against the house garage and along the driveway about a foot deep--the plow works very well to shove them off into the woods ,leaves nearly bare grass after one pass--I just lift up on the plow a little to avoid it digging in..

I only had to use the rake to pull the leaves away from the house and the garage where the tractor couldn't go..it looks like more rain tomorrow,so I'll have to wait till Wednesday at least to mulch up the rest of the leaves on the lawn along the driveway where all the trees are..the 60+ mph winds pretty much stripped all the leaves off all the trees last Thursday night ..

Re: Snow? Get any and how much

On October 11th we got 12". Other parts of the province got double that. Within a week it was gone. I couldn't believe it. Sitting at zero snow but day to day it doesn't look good.
