We had slushy snow yesterday, now we may get 1' to 2' starting midday tomorrow and going through Tuesday. We have had very little snow up until last Friday. Now we are going to catch it. Today will be preparing the equipment that I should have done in October. I also will get gas and diesel for my tractors and generators. Good Luck to everyone. Rick

I was hearing rumblings of that yesterday morning, it has since gotten louder, as if it will happen now. Rick & I are in the 24"+ zone. Trucks fueled up, I have plenty of gas, and case is ready. It will be interesting!

Not sure what you folks will be into, BUT! I went to out work on the Jake and nearly had to hang onto the tractor. Wind is gusting over 30MPH here today! So all you folks East, batten down the hatches!

We're on the southern edge of this one and I'm hearing anything from a few flakes to 7".

We are now getting the 2 to 4" stuff here in IN. Not sure it is gonna be that big yet, seems to move the amount farther south each time they tell about it. Supposed to snow all day today and into the night some. I have to work tonight (3) and will have to move it in AM or when I get up then.  All this usually misses us and angles up to the East then and Grows!  Good Luck!

I'm ready, been outside making sure everything is in order. charging up the battery on the 195. finally get to play with the big snowblower and see how the whole setup works in snow. I'm not sure what we're getting in the the northwest corner, I haven't checked yet. Even when they say we're getting less, due to the elevation I'm at (940' above sea level), we always get more than what's projected around us. I average 2" more than the surrounded lower towns. I even put the snows on the truck and put the 300#steel plate in the bed over the wheels.  BRING IT ON!!

Tom

I've heard 2 - 3 feet is possible in my area, closer to Providence, RI than Boston.  Wife and  I usually use the little electric snow blower, Snow Joe, to make a path to the shed; but this time I took the vinyl cab off and put it on the sun porch ( enclosed)  and am leaving the Husqvarna GTH2448T with the Agri Fab snow blower beside the house wrapped in a blue tarp.  Neither of us can trek through snow that deep anymore.

 When the storm's over We'll unwrap it and pop the cab back on.  Got a full tank of gas, and 10 more gallons, so I'm as ready as I can be.  Hope we don't lose power.  I sold the 7500 watt generator this past fall, because I thought we'd be in TX by now.  Ohh well.. lol
