We ended up with about 6" here, 8" in some places. I used my blower for the first time (I've had it for a year and 1/2 LOL) It seemed to have worked pretty good! NO, I didn't get any pictures because it was practically dark thirty when I rolled in from work and I needed to git-r-dun before it got too late. My wife isn't fond of the cold, so I couldn't talk her into coming out and snapping some for me. I'll still have to finish the driveway tomorrow, but 1/2 of the horseshoe is done, enough to get into and out of the drive.

Got about 6" of the wonderful white stuff today, some of the drifts were 18". Thankfully, we didnt get the big winds they were calling for.

Since i didn't get any pics of the SS12 in action last time, I bribed Ryan to give me a hand in that department.


Since clearing the driveway an hour ago, we've gotten about another inch.

I think we dodged the bullet here. With a snow to bumper ratio like this it isn't worth messing with. 




At least Cat can see what Ohio snow looks like.  :poke:  




I did pick up a set of belts for the IH walk behind blower yesterday just in case. I smoked one two years ago and hadn't got it back together yet. No sense getting in a rush. I didn't need it at all last year and it wouldn't break my heart if I didn't have to use it this year either. I used to like going out in the snow but the older I get, the worse it gets!
