Blowing hard out of the Nor-East...About 30-32" on the ground. Still snowing but not as hard at the moment.

15*F outside--73*F inside. 550# through the Heatrola this week.

Stay warm,
Eddie

Yep - we got POUNDED. I feel like I got hit by a bus. Been shoveling, plowing, and shoveling out the stuck ATV for 6 hours non-stop. Gonna be REAL sore tomorrow. Must've shoveled out the Polaris 12 times ... :x ... AND yanked it out with the Blazer at least 4 times ...

Snowed until about noon. Never got above 20°all day. Was 18° most of the day. Very light powder, but LOTS of it. Still a ballbuster when it's this deep. All of 2', with 4' - 6' drifts. I'd say 2' MINIMUM.

Still pretty good Smitty for a quad plowing that much snow! I used my old Gilson late 70's vintage tank of a snowblower on my drive. Probably a good 60 yrds or better. The first cut I had to go on 1st gear slow but after that, I could take a good 2/3 cut in 2nd gear and walk along side like a rear tine tiller. Took me about an hour and a bit. The snow was good throwing snow. Nice and powdery.

I've had a few of those blowdowns myself. Real pain to clear in deep snow. Had one that I could just drive under because it was hung up on a tree the other side of the drive. Did that for a week till I had a delivery coming and was forced to cut it. One cut and the root ball stood the trunk right back up. :lol: It's still like that, about a 15 foot telephone pole lookin tree.
