Here is a picture of me in my shed getting things ready for a possible 15 inch snowstorm starting tonight. No job for my JD 455 and front blade, ha,ha.

Your snow rig looks very capable of handling that amount, and more I'd wager. Good Luck.

Don, a blower is the best way to handle a large snow fall. Back in 2004 we got a storm here that dumped 98cm (38") of snow on us in about 24hrs. I had a 5hp snow blower LOL. I had to upgrade after that to something bigger. We've never come close to that since. Have fun with it.!

Between that blower and the loader with the homemade bucket I don't think you will have any trouble with it! Good luck!

Looks like you will be ready for whatever comes your way. Just be safe when you are out moving the snow. I don't think we even reached 15 inches total this year in this part of PA.

The wind here in NE Indiana must be blowing it all up North! Got pretty warm today, but man it is blowing! Makes you wonder if it is OUR turn for the nasty twisters going South of us this week?

When I was down in Middlebury Indiana on Wednesday picking up the Sears SS16 the temperature was 65* and the wind was blowing hard that day also. By the time I got 150 miles north it was snowing hard along with sleet and freezing rain.

You're a good man Daniel.When I saw this post earlier, Don was having trouble getting his pic loaded with his post. I had some trouble with my last picture upload, but when that happens, I walk across the driveway and ask George to help me.
Don, let us know how you make out with the snow.

Don,
If you get bored you can come over and blow the two foot of heavy wet snow out of my driveway along with the two and a half feet of compacted stuff the Antrim County Road Commission left along the side of the road. My little 18 horse Craftsman is having a heck of a time moving it far enough so as not to have to move it a couple more times. The bottom six inches or so is slush.

My nephew lives about six miles out of Gaylord on south 27 and their electricity went off and on for a few hours last night. We had about a half an hour of lightening and rolling thunder around 10:00 PM over here.

Thanks for the positive comments, I shoveled the roof off the back shed and back of the house and workshop yesterday and I am now convinced we got closer to 15 inches of snow yesterday . I'm almost 60 , just a few more weeks, ha,ha. Today I will fire up the JD455 with front blade and clean up some scraps and take some after storm pictures and a video . We got the snow now , ha,ha.
