I am in Central Kansas and just got about 14" of snow, did anyone else get any?

Here are a couple pictures of my Kubota L2000 after the driveway was cleared.

Everyone's pictures are welcome, tractor, compact tractor, garden tractor or anything that can push snow.

Once the snow plow clears our road, i am going to haul the tractor to my neighbors and plow her driveway.

We have about 6" now and its still coming down pretty good south of KC. I am sitting at work watching it snow. It will probably be too deep to plow by the time I get home. I might end up doing most of it with the box blade on the LGT195.

The few times I tried the FF18, the front end slid too much with the blade angled and that was after I removed the 160# weight on the 3 point. I might pull the front blade and try the rear blade.

I have paddle tires on the CC125. It gets around good, I just rides rough.

Not yet! They have bumped back arival time in the Des Moines area to 3:00 pm. The 1500 is full of fuel and there is 4 gal in the can.

They are saying we will get around 8".

We had a dusting of snow yesterday that was gone in about an hour and now we are looking at ice coating mostly everything.

Here's not enough for pushing, just 1-2". And -5° C (23° F) at night. Two days ago the snowdrops were in flower.

Tulsa got about 3.3", but it's about gone from the rain over night. Ground was too warm for it to stay too long. Have a good time playing in it!

Just went out to check on things and its either bare ground or a knee deep drift.  no way to tell how many inches there is [so far]  but my driveway is designed for wind out of the north or northwest and this wind is from the east/southeast.  I fired up the Ferguson and pushed a little. That blade doesn't have feet and with the crazy 3 point its impossible to control the setting.  I'm not looking to reposition all my gravel over into the grass so I'll just use the Power King as its blade has feet.  It was near impossible to see going east but looking out now it is letting up some.  As soon as I grab some lunch I'll fire up the PK.  If the HWY is bad as I suspect I'll have to take the chains off the PK and put them on the front of the F250 to go get the MRS. at 5 pm.   She wanted to stay home today and dumb ole me said it won't be bad as they are callin' for.  I still haven't decided if it'd been better to let her stay home all day.

It's starting to snow pretty decent here. I got out the MF10 diesel and drove it to the post office since it hasn't been out in a while. we are expecting 12" or so here. I'll probably push snow a couple times today so I don't have that big of a mess to deal with in the morning.

Just went out an measured, looks like we got a foot or so, with 2 and 3 foot drifts. It has been snowing all day but now it's a light rain/drizzle/mist? either way it's making the snow very heavy and hard to push.

I have been trying to get a couple paths made so it will make chores easier, i was also trying to clear all of the snow away from the greenhouse that we are building. I am hoping if i get all of the snow cleared from the greenhouse it will then dry quicker so we can get started on it again but now the snow is so wet i am having a harder time. I might call it quits for today and then get started again tomorrow when the weather clears up.

Here are a couple more pictures

Nothing here lately. I have logged about 10 hrs plowing snow so far this winter. That's about 3 times as much as last winter.

So far i have put in 3 hours today and that this is the first snow of the year.

 

PS. It looks muddy from the pictures but it's just loose dirt.

Took me about an hour with the 1614 PK.  There were drifts that gave it some trouble but I am impressed with that tractor every time I use it.  Driveway is 860 feet long and steep.  The wind was still blowing southeast to northwest so I piled virtually all the snow on the north side.  In the night I suspect the wind will change,  come out of the north,  and fill the driveway right back in.
