More snow pictures from our storm.  Snow packed so hard, you could walk on top and not fall in. Snow very good insulator as you can see from the picture with half the window with no frost on the bottom. Vent from propane fireplace kept the snow away in another picture. Thanks for looking, Noel

Wow! Looks like you can just make paths and leave the big drifts.  With that tractor you can go both ways and work it!  Bet that is a work-out for You too. Work places and any stores really open after that stuff?  I think would take a day or two to get the world moving again if that happened in States here. That blower is working double hard with snow twice it's height. AND, Lucky it can blow Over the snow. With loader, bet you can't even reach top of piles and need the lesser areas to dump that in??  Challenge Yes, fun....not so much at that amount! Does it Stop ya?  Not!  No Spring this year and summer in July. Need a contest to see how long snow lasts in NE Guy's yards!

We would be shut down and pass panic if we got that much.

 

Last time we got 24+ the whole county was in a state of emergency

I just came in from moving snow. I'm having to clear a road into the woods because I am low on firewood. Its about 2' deep but is packed and has a couple of ice layers in it. About every 10 yards I have to create a turnoff to push and bucket load snow into. The turnoffs become 6' high piles. When bucket loading onto the piles I push down with the bucket to compact the snow. It easily reduces in volume by 1/2 and more. It still took 2 hours to go about 100 yds. I got to 10 yards from a big tree that had fallen when I got too cold and sore. I'd be happier without the snow. Sunday looks like it will be freezing rain. Good Luck, Rick
