Ok guys, lets see some pictures of what you've accomplished.

 

These storms can be a pain, so lets see if we can have some fun with

it.

I've thrown snow twice now, no plow sadly. Driveway is cleared, but no where near done with the snowfall. Going to take lots of photos tomorrow.

We have only gotten about 3 inhes (if that) so far; although, it is still coming down hard. I have been using the four wheeler to plow this year and with that I can drive up the piles to stack them pretty high. The narrow front tires that PKs have causes them to sink in a snow bank, so I can't drive up them like I can the four wheeler. I will take some pictures tomorrow after I plow.

Yet to start here. I usually push it in off the driveway as far as possible so "I piles er deep buy, not high". Very minimal old snow on the ground here, maybe 4 inches max.

Well I come home and find snow up to my knees on the driveway, couldn't drive through it so I ran ET2 with the blade and was able to make a path thru it so the pickup is now off the road. Batteries on ET2 are now drained, it was pulling 80 to 125amps, and after about an hr she's done.

Still got 3/4 of the driveway to clear so I'll be busy for a while.

The flakes have stopped here in central Maine for now. We got about 4-6 inches of fluffy, blow off the road type snow. I've blown the drive from the main road, the drive way and the path in the back yard for the chickens to run around in (since they won't come out unless they have a path that's only got traces of snow under foot).

 

They say the best is yet to come so we've prepped the inside with all the necessities for power outages. Good movie (check), charges lap top (check), beautiful wife (check) 1 of 4 kids with us here at home (check), plenty of good food (check).........life's good.

 

Did I mention my wife is a Hospice Nurse and is on call from today at 4:30 p.m. till Monday morning at 8 a.m.? Let's hope she doesn't get called out (much) this weekend.

 

Here's what it looked like this afternoon before clearing the deck:
