Nothing here yet! Forecast is down to maybe 2" for Tulsa! Probably all sleet! I'm with you, Pat! :boo_hoo:

Sorry to hear you guys aren't getting much. We got hammered here last Fri-Sat and were supposed to get another 12" from the storm that was supposed to hit you guys. Anyway, here's some pictures and a video pushing some snow with the 108. Sorry about the shaky video,hard to hold the camera and drive at the same time.LOL.

I got about 3 or so inches last night and it was gone by lunch. I did plow the road and driveway last night with the 445 though. Seems to work really nice in snow! This was the first year the 445 has seen snow for me.

Looks like a big one tomorrow and Thursday!  The most overzealous of our meteorologists are now predicting upwards of a foot here.  The gas tanks are full, the gas cans are full and I will test run the generator tomorrow morn.  We have lots of food left over from Christmas so no worries here!

 

I got a weather station for Christmas.  I hope I can get most or all of the instruments installed before the storm hits.  I hear we are in for some exciting winds.

No Cab! No Snow! No Sleet! NADA! Zilch! We got nothing! But it's cold out there, 18* (-8C) with a wind chill of 4* (-16C).

I just made a pass.  Was only about 2-21/2" maybe.  Figured that It would be easier to push than the 10" total that they are forecasting.

 

 

Besides, that will give me more seat time when I do another pass of two later :D :D :D

I started out with the snow blower on Saturday morning and after about 6 feet I realized it wasn't going to cut it. The snow was very wet and kept plugging the chute. I guess I wasn't smart enough to sand it down and paint it when I put it on the tractor a month or so ago. Lesson learned.

 

Put the plow blade on and had no trouble pushing the snow as far as I wanted. Might need to put the plow on the truck tonight since they are calling for 12" or more and maybe a good bit of sleet too.
