Just curious how many of you guys are moving snow at this time. Its been a pretty mild winter here so far. Havent had enough snow to justify plowing, especially since it usually all melts the next day lol. Been snowing and blowing like crazy here today though, I think winter is finally here to stay a while. Feel free to toss up some pics of your plowing or blowing setup.

Probably another 1-1.5" back on the ground.

Not enough here in Manitoba to do anything with. Last forecast I saw said it was going to be +6C on Thursday, so the little bit we've got will disappear. It's been so long since I've had a reason to run a tractor that I'm not sure I remember how.

i think we have had about 2" this season, but when it gets to 50 a couple days aweek, its hard to amass much. Im not thinking ill miss it much as we got slammed hard last yr and i still have visions of the 3' drifts that were inside the back shop and the 10' ft ones out front of the house.

Used the snowmlower for the first time yesterday afternoon.
we started getting some snow on Sunday night but it only amounted to a couple of inches.
The only reason I had to bring out the blower is because the wind left about a 1-1/2 foot drift right across the front of the garage.

We haven't had much snow here either, which is really unusual.
But woke up this morning to about 2'' on the ground. Looks like I will finally get to plow with the Bolens 850 for the first time this season :bounce:

If we get anything much, it will be today. This morning there wasn't even enough to make the ground all white.

We got about a foot on Sunday so the old blower was used for the first time this season yesterday. Weather guy said another foot last night but he was wrong. Supposed to be 4 to 6" today so we'll see what happens. Won't break my heart if the Craftsman sits unused for the rest of the year.

Already two snowmobilers killed in the area in the past couple of days so there is also bad side to the snow.
