I live about an hour south of AA Hayes and I also enjoy winter if I can get out to do some ice fishing or small game hunting. I have been working very steady this winter though, so probably would not have gotten out much anyway. I think I have blown snow 4 times this winter ( I have a walk behind blower). We have enough to blow right now, but at the same time we are not having an issue getting the car or truck out of the driveway. It is supposed to be well above freezing Friday, Saturday and Sunday, with rain on Saturday, so I think I will just wait for it to melt.
