We have had an easy winter so far in North Eastern Connecticut so far. The weather guesser from Fox just warned us that Friday to Saturday we should expect 6" to 2' of snow. As I typed this 6 deer ran by my window. Maybe they were watching?
For those of you in the warmer(dare I say smarter) climates who have been envying plow time let me tell you that 2' of snow is no fun. Be glad for what you have. But, given a choice, I'd rather face a blizzard than a tornado.
To use a GT would mean plowing several times over night in teen temps and blowing winds. The snow build up on the sides of the drive would narrow it from 12' to 8'. I will have to use my bucket loader and it will take 5 to 8 hours. There is the problem of where to put that much snow when you have over 600' of driveway to plow. You need those little heat packs in your shoes, mittens, and on your back. Last time I had to handle that, I slept for almost 8 hours. I normally cannot sleep more than 4 hours at a time.
I now have to lay in an extra 1/2 cord of firewood and prepare the generators. I hope that by Being Prepared the storm will just decide to miss us. It will be hard work for the next two days but I can do it.
I wish all the rest of you good luck. Rick
