We have snow here. About 2-3 inches so, my brother and I just went out and plowed the driveway for fun.

Yep, snowed all day. Light fluffy stuff blowing around. Maybe 2" to 4". About 7 degrees F out.
It's supposed to snow all night and through the morning. 12" or more!
Hopefully, it will be easy to move in the morning!

We have had a bit of snow here. Got the jd 120 out. Got 10ft from the barn and got stuck. :wtf: Pulled it back in with the ford 80. I was so darn mad at it. I had a few choice names for it by the time I got it back in. That thing will be parked for the rest of the winter if that's how its gona play. :mad2:  At least the ford played nice. May think about selling the stupid jd. Guess im just mad at it right now. Darn thing.  Anyone else had joys like this this winter yet?

We had 3-4" of wet snow this morning, flurried during the day then temps dropped from this morning. When I left work, the slush and water puddles were all frozen. Supposed possibly get 4-8" Sunday.

We had about 3 days worth of lake effect snow, just enough light fluffy stuff to justify firing up the little Case 222 that could. I fugure 4-6" or so , total.   Gotta lake that lake effect snow,  :D  as  counties not adjacent to Lake Michigan pretty much  got nada....

 

Stay safe out in New England you guys- all the news here in WI is about how much you are gonna get it!

I wish we were getting some snow. Been to stinking cold to do it I think. Its kinda sad when -5* feels pretty good for a temp (todays high). Looking forward to tomorrow cause they're saying maybe 20 above ( going to feel like a heat wave! ). Then by Sun. -10* and Mon. -14* for the high :mad2:   Really wish spring was here.

About 7f here, with 6-8". The wind chill takes it well below 0 and the snow is still coming.

Ryan and I tag teamed the drive and got it done fairly quick.
He pulled and pushed the snow and I ran the blower.

We got about 15" over the last 48 hours (which is enough to throw most people in IL into panic mode lol). I finally had to put the chains on the Sears but with the wings on the plow and the chains that little tractor can really move some snow! I pulled the 782 out with the big blower to move some of the big piles, that machine can move some serious snow too!
