Looks like we are in for at least 25 and up to 40cm (10-16") of snow with blowing snow starting this evening into tomorrow. Heres the official weather warning. Looks like some seat time for sure. I've got to check out the walk behind blower. The wheel drive is not engaging consistently and it's been a few years since I've cleaned and lubed it. Belt dust gets on the drive plate and the friction disc slips. Time for some routine maintenance. I might even install the chains on the 2320.
