So much snow that the usually unstoppable Kubota G5200 couldnt do it and the Ford LGT125 with the loader wasnt much good either. The snow is so deep, the blower couldnt blow it up over the top of the snow. So I broke out the shovel and after 6 hours I still cant get out of the driveway and the vehicles are not cleaned off yet! Not really a problem I guess because I work for a school and theyre closed anyway and the whole county is under a state of emergency. News says the National Guard is coming in because the townships are overwhelmed, must be true, there hasnt been a plow down my street yet, you cant tell where my driveway ends and the street starts!

Be careful and no slips, trips or falls. It would be tough getting to a hospital.

Sounds like we live pretty close , The Poor Bolens had all they could handle today and its still coming.

The bottom layer that fell was all slush which made for a night mare with both plow blade and blower.... Got the driveway half done.

Wow.

 

I heard on the radio how much you all had, and it didn't seem like it could be.

 

When I heard it, it was 4 foot high and rising (as Johnny Cash would say) with two foot more on the way. 

 

I take it your power has stayed on, though, right?

 

The Poor Bolens had all they could handle today and its still coming.

 

Maybe its time to get a Gravely, Brian!  :D

I think any brand would struggle keeping up with 4-5'' an hour snowfalls! :D\

 

Been a good 10 years since we got hit this bad with lake snow.

Luckily the power is on with 20'' more snow expected tonight :wallbanging:

Any water left in the lake? Looks like it all went ashore in the form of snowflakes.
