who on here doesn't live in a traditional snow area?

I've seen on this site some people responding from places that usually don't get snow. Just wondering do you get enough snow where you live that you have a blower, or do some of you just like rubbing it in that you don't have to deal with snow

Here in the Paradise city all we have gotten are a few light dustings. I don't think I will have to use "SR" this year.

Long LIVE THE POWERSHIFT!! MAY IT NEVER RUST IN PEACE!!

We've gotten 4 light 1-2 inch snows so far and I've used a broom, a shovel and a leaf blower. I'm disappointed that I have not been able to use the snowblower yet this year! Three years ago we had 30 inches in one snowfall.

Ha! Don't tell anybody but I was pretty amped about the snow we got yesterday in CT. I made a good show of it being all like "Dang! Gotta clear that snow!" Deep inside though, i really just wanted to run my machine. We had a good time this morning. Nothing better than the sound of a Tecumseh 10 horse hitting a snow drift. Satisfying and throaty.

He's a Toro guy so "SR" is short for his Toro Super Recycler lawn mower. Maybe?

Minnesota. Haven't had enough this year to fire up the blower, but we've been hammered in the past.
I think the worst I've seen here was 102" one year. Of course growing up, in 58 we had a blizzard in Iowa where the snow drifted over the peak of the house (story and a half) when it finally quit.

Been cold as heck here lately, I've always said I'd rather have the snow than cold. At least you can move the snow and be done with it, cold on the other hand you have to live with.
