Got to say, I'm the overcompensator myself! I live in the South, where snow falls perhaps once a winter and rarely sticks around; nonetheless I have a Gravely tractor with blade, a Massey tractor with blade, and I've caught myself looking at buying a snowblower for one tractor or the other several times!

I have always been the procrastinator type. There is always the chance the crap might melt. Thankfully we haven't had much in larger accumulations. I honestly wouldn't mind a good foot or so. As long as it waits till I get used to the temperature changes and want to have the seat time

I cleaned the streets in our small town (pop. 700) for years with nothing but a tractor and loader/grader blade. This was the winters of 1977 & 78.
We did progress to a large plow for the 2 ton dump truck, but it was a real bear as we have a lot of "dead-end" streets in town.
Finally got a 7 foot plow for the 4 x 4 pick-up and that worked very well. Actually could clear all streets in town in about 4 less hours than with the big plow!
1 person can not hit every street 1st! Someone will have their drive cleared long before I could get to their street.
The main streets in town were always 1st and worked out from there.
I can't begin to tell you the phone calls I got and the cussing I got for "plowing" someone drive colsed.
The only thing I can say is I did the best I could with what I had to work with.
PS......Some people appreciated what I was doing, and others got their drives plowed shut again!
