24 Plus inches in last 24 hours and more on the way.

now we're talking.

only blew the drive 3 times today. my HS80 with impeller kit blows snow almost as well as the 1132 without one. Then just finished a HS928 with impeller kit and had to dial down the shut because it was throwing snow 60-70 feet ( not exaggerating ......I measured it )

about time we got some serious flakes.

The only snow we got in NYC was in mid November. It's in the middle 50s here and for the next 10 days. Such a disappointing winter. Didn't use my snow blower even once.

Hello Orangeputeh,

I hope you received my last PM.
Has the Fluid Film helped to keep the chutes clear on the snow mules? Has your pup been able to enjoy the snow?

Its been very warm here and now its raining. At least the coal dust is not going to be an issue tomorrow when I start bagging coal

I took the inflatable penguins off the front lawn while they were insulting me and talking smack about the spouse and then I plugged the fan back in and let the penguins dry out in the sun while sitting they were sitting on the hot driveway.

I figured that since they were put out before Christmas it was time to take them off the lawn as the propain delivery truck driver almost wrecked them dragging the hose over the anchoring lines.
The penguins were dissing me and complaining in general while I packed them in the
big plastic storage box. They kept yelling even after I put the storage box in the garage.


Stay warm my dear friend.

I'm not that far from you and we already have too much! We keep getting about 1/2" to 2" every night so every morning, we have to clear our driveways so the snow won't accumulate too much. Even if I bought another snowblower I still hate winter!

Wow. Yeah, send some of that snow over this way! It's been a boring winter so far, we have hardly gotten anything.

We've only had one what I would call snowfall this year. That was 4" and light as powdered sugar so a snow shovel handled it. I did get the blower out for the first time to clear what the city snowplow put on the sidewalk. The weatherman is talking another 3" today and maybe 6" tomorrow but that's speculation IMO.

The weatherman says we're supposed to have another shot tomorrow afternoon/ evening, 2-5". That'll be the first real snow we've had here since November. Dang snow-proof dome over the Colorado front range.
