Be safe down there guys.

The best plan, is drive defensively, if you have to go out there.

 

Oh,  yeah, pictures!

Otherwise, we just don't know.

Do you have any snow plows for your tractors? Your temperature range is dangerous for ice build up. Good Luck, Rick

 

I have two nice ones for the Dragonfly - that is taken apart for restoration . We do get lots of ice. Last weeks storm was 1/2 inch of ice covered in 2 inches of snow covered by another 1/4 inch of ice. I weigh nearly 300 pounds and I didn't leave a single footprint in the yard till the next day when it all started to melt.

It has been snowing in my area since about 8:30 pm.  I would guess between 2 to 3 inches, perhaps more but I won't step outside to measure tonight :) .  Last week I had a "Plan A" to deal with snow, but then the chains walked off one tire and damaged the drive.

"Plan B" included a stop by the autoparts store for a new plug and some starter spray.  Worked well enough to get "Plan B" out of its parking spot and into the covered shed where I was going to have my son hook up the snow blade while I went to work.  "Plan B"'s parking brake/variable pulley linkage broke as I backed into the shed.

I came home with snow falling and began to implement "Plan C".  More starter fluid and the old Gravely fired up (strap pull) so I pulled it into the shed out of the falling snow and swapped the bush hog for a plow blade and dual tires.  Hopefully "Plan C" will be ready tomorrow for my driveway, even if the roads are impassable.

We didn't get squat out of this round, but Saturday starts another. Wintery mix to sleet to rain here Saturday through Tuesday.

Not much here last night.....started sleeting then went to rain.....but it did not get past freezing.....still have snow on cars and shady areas of yard. Uneventful for me. 60 miles north heavy wet snow. People without power. Raleigh back to Greensboro- snow anywhere  from 2-7 inches........over cast and cold by our standards.....another washed out day for selling and planting plants for sure. Stay safe and warm.

Here are a few pics of the aftermath of the storm.  We got around 5 inches of wet heavy snow.   Plan C was an absolute winner, got my driveway done, the neighbors and a substancial amount of the street in front of my house.GE Snow 004.JPG GE Snow 005.JPG GE Snow 009.JPG GE Snow 032.JPG

 

Note the smile on the little guy's face.  Gotta treasure moments like that.

It is a snow person and we do not discuss his size or shape. If you continue to do so legal charges will follow.
