We have about 3 inches here and it has only been snowing for a couple hours. Supposed to get around 6 inches.

Do previous years count? 

If so, here is what I piled up by March of 2008:

Doesn't look like much, right? 

 

The thing is, the ground ends about 5 feet behind the backhoe bucket, where the snow starts to rise up. The entire tractor is on snow I dumped into the gully, which is probably around 20' deep. 

 

We had a buttload of snow that year. 

 

Here is another view of where the backhoe was parked, on April 20th. I think we had snow until July that year, without exaggeration. The sun doesn't shine down in the gully very much. I distinctly remember throwing snowballs at my kids when they were little on the 4th of July one year.

I got about the same as poncho62, the wind blew some drifts near the bottom of the drive 1-1/2ft high, I'll go at it again tomorrow in the daylight try to finish.

:wewantpics:  or mother nature didn't win!!!

 

As requested, pictures taken this afternoon.

001.JPG 004.JPG

006.JPG 007.JPG

005.JPG 008.JPG

 

I was able to plow the driveway with ET2 but so far it's had to be recharged 3 times.

This is too much for my little electric tractor, 4" no problem.

12" with drifts to 18"  TOO MUCH.

 

I still say mother nature won this time, still got more to clear with the shovel.

 

Added my friend with the greenhouses lost 1 building and 3 others damaged. Metal trusses not strong enough to hold the snow especially when there are snow drifts.

Today I spent a good 4hr + in the bobcat clearing snow for him.

That's a lot of work for ET. I'd say ET pulled it's weight.

Give it a nice trickle charge as a reward. :thumbs:

Here are some pics of the aftermath of the storm here in Central Maine. I just finished shoveling the deck (the drifts my wife and daughter are standing next to below). After shoveling the entire deck I'm thinking of building ramps for next year so I can drive the CASE or Massey up on the deck to clear the deck......okay that would be a terrible idea since the deck is about 8 feet off the ground. :(

No snow here, but to oblige the picture request, I played in about 15" of dirt and mud today.
