well the wind has finally stopped after 2 days of bitter cold, i have drifts in my driveway 2-3 feet so i will get some seat time tomorrow, i'll keep my fingers crossed and hope my skid steer starts, nothing like roughin it in a heated cab with stereo ha ha ha!!! or else i may be out on the c160 freezing my tuckus off, apparently we have another storm coming in tomorrow night so i had better get this taken care of, or else the wife might have to stay home from work and want to spend "QUALITY TIME" together, which usually means no after noon nap for me, happy plowing farmer john

Yeah, that was a wicked wind. Started 8am Fri. out of the SW up here. Huge hard

drifts everywhere. Sat. morning I went out at about 8:30 am, and suddenly it went

calm for about 5 minutes, swung to NW wind and blew just as hard. Stopped

here now too.

Those drifts where really packed hard. Using the Case 580E, I had to take

3-4 runs at them just to get through.

Have fun out there with the Skidsteer tomorrow John.

Well, had blowing snow here today, but most light. Some drifts, but roads not too bad depending on direction.  Big snow and cold for Sunday coming. The Real cold is gonna be Monday night thru Tuesday. Might be down to -20 at times, and bigger w-chills. Already closing churchs and meetings and bet they do for schools couple days beginnning of week too.  Indiana is so wimpy with winter. The stores were packed Friday because of BIG storm that is gonna come.   Weird!

It turned mild here overnight and rained hard. I think 30mm was forecast. Now it's almost back down to freezing again. Low tonight will be -11c. High tomorrow +6 with snow changing to rain. A real Nova Scotia winter this year. Lots of precipitation and you never know what's next.

Sounds like you guys have some crazy wether up there in Canada. Been cold here also. Will be glad when it warms up some so I can get out and get the drive cleared from the snow a few days ago. Been 0 F or below fro a few days. Gets up to maybe 20 F and then back dow again. Not supposed to be warming up until the end of the month. Stay warm and stay safe.  Roger.

Here's a few pictures.

I had to take the air gun to the truck, and then let it run to dry it out.

Polar Vortex :D did it. Horizontal 40-50 mph snow, for 20 + hrs, will do that. All the vehicles

where the same. It didn't matter which direction they where faced.

Its looking like the kids are going to have another day off tomorrow with the high being in the teens below zero and a blizzard warning til midnight. Looks like I'll be working on the honey do list.

We've had several nights with single digit temps here. Some days with highs in the 30s. This afternoon temps were in the low 50s. I rode a couple of my bicycles, one at a time,of course, without a coat and messed with my Toro Power Handle snowblower some. I'm not wanting it to snow so I can try out the snowblower. I could drive 25 miles from home and be in snow.
