Got the Bolens all gassed up and ready to go battle the storm!

We are supposed to get some heavy Lake snows From now until Wednesday Morning.

Predictions are around 3 Feet or more!

 

Snow has already accumulated 3'' in the first couple hours

 

Hope this is the last of it for the year!  I would rather be mowing!

Doc, how do you like the rubber cleats? Do you feel they are better as far as traction than the standard chains? Just curious. I know the rubber doesn't mark up the driveway like the chains, but I'm curious to see how they do on ice?

I actually think they do better than conventional chains.

They seem to have a better grip on both Ice and snow.

 

Been thinking about getting some for the EK10

Looks like you're ready anyway...

I don't envy you being in the snow belt, 3 feet over the next few days is way more than I care to deal with.

Maybe the Lakes will freeze over before too long and stop the lake effect snow.

Looks like the snow wasnt as bad as predicted where I am but most other parts of WNY are in bad shape.

Most major Thruways and Roads have been closed with travel Bans issued.

Its -1 with a brutal windchill.

 

You know it bad when the tracking number on a package I ordered has a status update of "Adverse Weather Conditions"  Dont think I've ever seen that on shipping info before!
