And the JD 140 couldn't do anything. Had to get the ford out. It worked great. Noel.

A real mess because of ground not froze.

Wow, what a mess.  That looks like it was wet heavy slushy stuff.  Hey, at least you are getting some snow.  I looked at the weather forecast for my area and it's calling for mild temps on past the middle of December.  Very unusual winter so far.  I just wonder if the other shoe will fall after the new year.  We don't usually get that much before the end of the year but this year is way out of whack.

Can't tell if just single stage? I once had an Cub Cadet and came with blower had to work on to make work. First snow was heavy and wet and the darn thing was just a big snowplow, piling it all up in front of itself, durn! Pulled it back in and took it off, and on went blade, was happy camper with that.

Don't you hate a wet snow on top of unfrozen ground?  We have had a bunch of rain here the last week and are talking mild weather through mid December.  Need the ground to freeze up and stay froze. Have water standing in the foot prints on the hill side.  Going to be worse when that stuff melts as it usually does.  You might be better off if it does melt and then freezes up hard.  Be ready for next time that way.

Around 50* each day here, with no precip whatsoever for the next 10 days.  Weird, but I'll drink beer in it.

Weather seems to always be weird? Can not remember what year it was in the early 90s, we had unusually warm November and December. Went 47 days with no sunshine. People got very grouchy and depressed.
That was when I decided humans are solar powered.

Then the Jet stream tracked further south and we hit a real cold snap.

Up here in Michigan we had a snow storm and then not even a week later it all was gone :( . The weather keeps on changing every second!

This is the norm in Michigan...even when the winter weather is nice, Lake Michigan creates lake effect clouds, so it's cloudy almost all of the time.  By February, the local news usually does a tidbit on Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD, or Winter Blues).   BUT...the rare sunny day is so much more special because of it!

Yeah,I believe it. We do not have anything like Lake Michigan out here. There are 3 large Corp of Engineers lakes in the state.
The smallest of the 3 is Sailorville about 10 miles north of DES Moines. Whenever it would snow at the office I would tell fellow workers it was lake effect snow caused by Sailorville.
