We had more wind and snow last night that changed to rain before morning. I was on custodial duty at the church today so I headed out early so I could shovel/sand/salt where required. By that time it was beginning to freeze up. We had about 2" of slushy snow on the ground. It was really slippery on the way to the church with high winds, ice pellets pouring down and some of the roads not cleared. By the time I got there it was well below freezing and the ice pellets were turning back to snow. the wind was blowing it around pretty good. When I got back home the driveway was blocked by big snowballs that had rolled off the plow. I left the car out on the road and walked in. The snow was hard enough that you didn't dent it when walking. I got my warm clothes on and got the tractor warmed up. Lowered the blade and it just folded over on the trip springs. Tried a few times and no go. The 2320 weighs in at over 3k so it was tripping those blade springs easily. I then remembered that I could lock the blade. So I locked it, put it in 4wd and peeled the ice/snow mix off the driveway. I had to be careful of digging in and I made a few divots in front of the garage when the blade dug in. I'm glad I got that off the driveway because it would have been there for a while if it had frozen hard.
I am getting a bit weary of all these storms and the bad driving. It was treacherous this morning.
