We were supposed to get a dusting of snow today. The forecast was updated this morning to 2 to 4 inches and now we have at least 6 inches on the ground and still a bit coming down. With below freezing temps forecasted until after the 25th it looks good for a White Christmas and some seat time later today to clear the driveway. :smile1:

It's still snowing big wet flakes. I'll probably go out and plow at about 3:30 or so to get it done before dark. I don't think the driveway is froze up. That kind of takes some of the fun out of it because I need to float the blade by hand in some places or I end up plowing gravel and tearing up the driveway. I haven't had the 2320 out since the last snow storm in Nov. so I'm overdue for some diesel fumes ! LOL.

I keep telling folks there's going to be no snow in PA. And there hasn't been. Now that I got a snowblower it will never snow again... until the snowblower breaks. Then it will snow for days on end.

This storm is one of those surprises. Just last night they were saying 1 to 2 inches of snow. The driving is really bad in spots. It's right around freezing and if no salt is put down before it sticks to the road it forms ice and before you know it there are traffic jams from accidents and people not being able to get up the hills. I got home before it got too bad and I drive a Subaru with 4 snow tires so it takes a lot to get me stuck. I'll see if I can post some pics for all you guys with snow envy.

I just plowed it back. I ripped up the driveway in a few spots. The blade looks like I've been digging in the dirt! A messy little storm. Traffic is snarled up with a bunch of accidents.

Congrats on your seat time Brian! It was 33 F for most of the day here and it tried to snow a little, but only succeeded to be grey, dismal, and rainy...again.

Not much up here in Winnipeg. I think were going to be above freezing for Christmas, so likely what we do have will melt. People I know with snowmobiles are very sad. So am I. I keep looking at my 420, sitting there all alone.

Heres some video of the plowing for those of you who need a fix but have no snow. :smile1: The 54 blade is really too small for this tractor. Going down the driveway I had to stop when it dug in and tripped the blade springs. It is a bit hard getting video and plowing at the same time but it's not too bad.
