We might end up with a few inches of the white stuff. This should give me some time with the tractor over the weekend. Quiet time...

Well Mayor, we got about 4" today with another up to 7" predicted for tomorrow night. I was looking forward to a bit of seat time tonight, but....I came home to a mostly shoveled driveway. My 6 year old wanted to help Dad and cleaned out about half of the 200' of 8' wide driveway to get me to the garage. He was so pleased he helped me to not have to snowblow...gotta love the kids, they melt your heart!:thThumbsU

Have hope:

This is the first snow map of this system: Pink= snow/ice; Light Blue= 1-3"; Dark Blue= 3-6". Have fun and be safe!

Nuts! We are in the mix zone. Pretty typical for us. Not enough to use the "new" blower, but still a messy/icy clean-up. Oh well, I guess we'll hope for rain down here.

CP, those kids sound great to me! Before you know it, they'll have the entire driveway cleared before you get home -- using the 1026R!

Yes you are right UT, the thought has crossed my mind more than once!

I got some seat time this morning as it continued to snow after Junior shoveled. And it appears we are in the 3"-6" zone above, so more seat time is in the cards?:thThumbsU

Photos? Video? Come on, you know we want to see a 1026R in snow-action. :D

CP I'm going to sneak up there tonight and clear it with the 322 just so you don't have to work that 1026R too hard!! :ROF

We're getting some here now too. My wife goes to work at 4:30am so I may be clearing early tomorrow to get her out the drive!

Looking forward to it!

Surprisingly, we already have a full dusting down here. and now they seem to be saying 1-3" of wintery mix. Hmmm. I'll probably wish I had left the snow blade on instead of swapping for the blower. Oh well...

Funny when this is the hot set up for the end of January:

Just finished the last tree felling/cutting/chipping of the season in time to get the full snow rig ready and am hoping it won't get used. :)

A 1" dusting with a layer of ice on top down here. Wish I had left the blade on, but what would probably work best of all would be a salt spreader!

We got about 4" of powdery snow. It certainly was enough to blow! Mrs. CP was kind enough to take some action pics. I will get them shortly, but we will be having a big switchover in our Internet service provider, tv, and phone today, so I will be offline shortly for awhile. Wish us luck!
