We got another 8" of snow in Eastern Washington State.  That puts us at about 20" so far this season.  This is way above our average.  We're suppose to get a little more tonight and some more later in the week.  I did get some seat time in the cub 1811 w/snow blower.  The snow is nice and powdery so the blower worked really good.  I did throw a snow chain so I will have to put that back on in the morning when there is more light.

Here's what it looked like out the front window of my house.

That looks like a couple of hours of fun.

 

We only have maybe 2 inches.I still had to fire up the blower and try it out a bit.Not enough snow to do anything with.I think I blew more grass through the blower than snow lol.Might have to lower the skids on the blower a little.

Lucky!  This is the second winter we are dealing with no snow.  Oh, the ground is coated FINALLY with around an inch but that's it.  I know many of you wish for this but I've always looked at it this way, if it's going to be cold, there may as well be snow to go with it and give me reason to get out and move a little.  Here it is the first week of January and I have yet to put my snow plow on.  I never thought I would say this but I'm going to have to move south to get some snow.

The storms are all going around us. An inch or two here and there. It's what we get so often. Much more fun dealing with 6-8 inches than an inch.

Got our first real snow of the season Saturday. About 8" inches of powder. They're calling for rain and temps in the 50's through the week. Should make for a muddy mess.

 

Just curious Mark, but is the coast in general getting more snow than normal?

Most of Eastern Washington and Oregon are getting more snow then normal.  The crazy part to me is we've had snow storms that seem to just hit the Southeastern part of Washington and Northeastern Oregon.  Usually most of the snow moves past or around our area.  Usually cities nearer to the Cascade Mts. get more snow then us.  The cities on the very Eastern edge of Washington and into Idaho get more snow because of the Blue Mts.  We sit in a basin that just doesn't normally get the moisture to form snow.

I was happy for the first two storms but I'm not as happy when this third storm hit within the last 4 weeks.  I'm not tired of snow yet but if this continues I might be changing my tune!

I lived in Johnstown PA for a winter.  With all of this snow it's starting to feel like Johnstown!

A few years ago we were getting so much snow that I was indeed tired of it.  It seems that once I got done with the driveways, I had to start over again.  There is such a thing as too much but I don't think I'm asking too much when I ask for one good storm.

About 3 years ago, we had 9 plowable snows in 3 weeks. I was sick of snow.

They get a bit more snow than we do down over the mountain.Lots of funky weather because of Lake effect weather and being rite against the edge of the 1st big mountain range.Lots of nasty weather when lake effect winds slam into the side of the mountain.We get 1/2 the snow they do unless the winds dump it over the side like it did last winter.We got 32" in that last snow dump of last year and they only got around 18".We are 45 minutes SE down over the side of the Mountain.4 miles away is the peak of Blue Knob mountain,it gets hammered with winds and snow.Only thing up there is a Ski resort lol.

We just got another 4" of snow today!  The city has about 7 snow plows and other equipment to try and keep the main streets clear but they're not getting to many of the side streets. With a population of 77,000 that means we have a lot of side streets.  They've had to cancel school Monday and Tuesday of this weeks and probably a two hour late start tomorrow if we get a lot more snow tonight.   I spent about an hour trying to clean up our cul-de-sac so the cars don't get stuck trying to turn around.  I have some water damage to our sheetrock in our master bedroom because of some ice dams that have formed. I have to deal with that once it stops snowing.  We also suppose to drop down to low single digits by Wednesday.  This is turning out to be one hell of a winter for us!

Sorry to hear about the water damage, Mark. That can be a real mess.

 

Is it a fair guess that most people your way don't have much in the way of snow removal machinery?
