The weatherman says snow starting tomorrow with accumulations over 6 inches before it is done. I'm going to take my 455JD out every 2 inches and plow the driveway I am so desperate for seat time, LOL

We have a chance of snow, maybe enough to at least say it snowed.

I missed the forecast tonight on the news but Kathy said they pushed the 6 inches closer to us. The Allis is backed in the garage and ready to go, just need to grab two pins and the lift rod from the blower tractor to use on the plow. I have had the same gas in the can for so long now waiting for snow its probably all varnish:smilewink:, not really always add seafoam. Bring it on I think i am ready!

You guys can keep it out that way. Although I am sure dad would love some seat time.

It's comingv your way. It wa 40 degrees at 10 am, it is now 20 degrees and winds blowing 35 mph. Real fine snow, we are only suppose to get 1-2 " but 6" in Eastern Iowa.
Blower is on the 318, but since the 1/4 mile lane is gravel, I'll drive over it and pack it down so the blower won't pick up gravel. May do the 160 ft of asphalt tomorrow when I get home from work.

Well the ground is white here, but that's about it. Probably be gone by morning with the soil temps. If not, I can get out the leaf blower and blow it off the drive.:bigrofl:
