We're getting some good rain right now! Over 1/2 inch so far this morning!

Well I have gotten Service Disruption Notices from UPS for NM around Portales, Tx around Amarillo, Ok around Boise City and Kansas around Coldwater due to a winter storm.  Local weather is saying it will track across the extreme SE tip of Iowa and Des Moines is expected to get around 2" tonight into tomorrow.?

Started snowing here in central KS this morning, dropped maybe a inch or 2 with really high winds. The snow then stopped around 2:00 and it has just now picked back up here at 7:00pm

It's really snowing hard and the wind is around 40mph so there are going to be some pretty good sized drifts.

It's going to be a real muddy mess when all of this is melted but i we really need the moister.

I'll post back tomorrow morning with pictures

We've gotten another inch of rain. The freeze line is just on the west side of Tulsa, so it may be white out tomorrow morning!

Well, we got around 8 or 10 inches of snow last night, It's hard to tell how much because it was blowing around some and we still had snow on the ground from the last storm.

I got the driveway cleared this morning and this snow was really wet and heavy so it took a little longer.

Now everything is a real muddy mess, the lowest temperature was around 30 so the ground isn't frozen at all. Now everything is melting really fast, when i was pushing the snow, there was water running in the tire tracks.

Here are a couple pictures

Here are a couple pictures of a snow storm we had 2 years ago

And of course, at that time the tractor was broke down, so i had to shovel the driveway!

The other pictures are of the road, so luckily the road grader cleared that path!

Round 2 was 12". I started out planning to go to work when I got done. Well I got done around 2. No point making the trip that late. I started about 7am. Just when I thought I was gonna get done without breaking anything, I broke a weld on the blade for the ff18. I finally figured out that it likes to push with the blade straight.

No pictures tonight maybe tomorrow. They really messed up on this one! They were predicting it to track south of us and we would get less than 2 inches. I left work at 2:30 and got home at 3:30 highway was just wet(after 1 1/2 hr commute this morning).
Got on the Blue Mule and plowed the 1/4 mile lane and driveway. It was snowing all the time I was doing it. Not to stop till noon tomorrow. I am guessing 5-6 inches tonight and they are saying it will be 9-10 total?
