Question How is your winter so far?

Hello everyone,

How is your winter so far?

Did you had to use your snowblower?



I have used mine already for 15 hours . For the quantity I don't know. I guess it's already too much haha

One use so far.
unusual for these parts. (Western NY, Rochester area.)
Although the lake effect patterns have been giving snow to Buffalo and Syracuse, but missing Rochester, but that's fairly common.
still, we are lower than average for this year so far.

Here we are far above the average.

We are really close to our 2008 winter record ( in date of january 4th) They expect a winter like 2008 ( we had over 600 cm in 2008-2009 )

Used the snowblower twice. Once for 6 inch snowfall and the other time for 3 inch or so. Hardly any snow on the ground left and none of the snowmobile trails are open. Looks to be a suck year for snowmobiling again.

I've used mine 3 times this year I think. We've already had more snow this year then we did all year last year. Last week was mild and rainy, but now it's freezing cold. They're calling for allot of snow and cold this year here.

OK. So far. A couple snow storms here or there. It seems less than usual for the Cleveland snowbelt.

We've had two or three very minor events. I only cleaned up once and used the single stage machine. Probably 5"
