Very jealous. Not enough to test ours out. I would look sillier than you on your first try.We got just over two inches here in SE Michigan. Not as much as I would have liked, but enough to try out my 38" snowthrower without feeling silly. I was aprehensive after the first snow of around one inch (yeah, I felt silly that time). It didn't seem to work as well as my old Monkey Wards walk-behind. However, "they" were right; my Deere works way better with more snow. It really flings it better than my old 2 stage walk behind. Can't wait to try it on a real snow!
