Small storm compared to last year at this time. Going to be wet snow here, 20 cm or about 8" inches. Will be able to try out my new hydraulic chutes that most of you like.

It sux, nothing but mild weather forecast for the next couple of weeks.

However the recent rain has left the alley and driveway a skating rink. I see an opportunity to bust some ice. Just need a cameraperson.

Just be careful on your method of busting ice.  The bones won't take much of that. :wave:

Just don't let that slippery sh*t bust you. We had an ice storm 9 years ago. I slipped, fell and really hurt my back. It has not fully healled yet. Good Luck, Rick

Well, it looks like it will start as rain, quickly turn to snow this afternoon, at times heavy, and end over night.  6" or so in the forecast. These Nor easters are notoriously hard to forecast and just plain nasty with high winds and big temp. swings in a short time. It's a good day to just stay inside and not be on the road when it hits. Got stuck in the city one time during a Nor easter when it was raining and in the mid 40's. The temp dropped to near freezing in about 1 hour and huge heavy snow flakes started coming down hard, stuck right to the road, froze, and everything came to a halt right at rush hour. It took 5 hours to go 15 miles home that night. No fun at all!

Maybe that will change late next week?  they are predicting up to 10 inches here next Tuesday depending on how it tracks it could get there around Thursday? Today was sunshine and 45 degrees but we have enough snow on the ground the SE wind was chilly just the same.

I notice if someone in the 'hood gets a tractor. I live on a short street,, no crossroads. This guy got a tractor and looks just a little thrilled. It would have been working 3 days this week and possibly again tomorrow
