Guess you need not worry about any underground water lines freezing this winter.  More snow in the forecast,,that shovel of yours must be about red hot by now.. I'm in Kelowna BC at the moment,,just learned the ski area 40 miles from here averages 24' a year of snow,,but not all the same day

Yep, Brian, I have to agree with you.  They haven't built a garden tractor to handle that much white stuff!

 

Go after something bigger:

Weather guy said the areas with persistent snow squalls are going to get their average yearly snowfall in 2 days! Actually, Rochester which is just east of us gets more snow annually but Buffalo got the snowy reputation from the blizzard of 77'.

I work GM plant in IN, and they closed 3rd shift tonight. Our engines come from Tanawanda, NY and they got 4ft snow they say and nothing is moving. Must be same place then?  Course, I'm in Material group and WE always have to come in, cause other trucks make it and we have to  unload still.  End up with lots of parts trying to be put in storage spaces that are too small.

glgrumpy, Tonawanda is about 8 or so miles from me but didnt get that much snow to my knowledge, under a foot I believe. The problem probably was the thruway being closed all the way to the Pennsylvania line.

Here's a pic from one of the news channels
Yes that is a car!
Last night the ground was bare, this all happened in less than 24hrs!

When it snowed all day yesterday without sticking I was completely doubting we would get any snow today. Boy was I wrong...

Will, I know one thing: I don't own it. It would work great moving tractors, though.

Ha. The darn tires are bald. $9 million dollar ripoff in my book. :D :rolling:

Everybody getting all that snow, stay safe. It's easy to get injured working on slippery ground and moving heavy snow. Does that bucket say 70 cubic yards!!!! That's like several tandom truck loads!

25 years ago I was assigned to the Buffalo Corps of Engineers District Office. I noticed that outside of the city there were alot of houses that had an old farm tractor with a 3ph type snowblower on the back sitting next to their garages. I hope that they still have them and they run. Good Luck, Rick

My daughter and I just took the snowmobile to target and the gas station, road still not plowed and driveway still not cleared. The belt on the snowblower broke this morning so I guess its the shovel for me!

Who's up for a road trip?  This sounds like the ultimate plow day of another kind!
