This is actually a pretty cool topic to see.
Back when CT was hit by Blizzard Nemo, my neighborhood had received just under 4 feet of snow...it was a wild time, to say the least.

Yep... I had over 44" in some areas (no they were not drifts...) I was located in Ansonia... My Husquvarna 32" got it done, but threw a belt at the very end and didnt have any replacements... Had to shovel the end of the driveway by hand and couldnt get out anywhere...

Roads were impassable for about 2 days afterward. And on top of that I had one tennant who is a freaking idiot, thought he would be able to get out with his corolla...

Either way. I hope to God I never see that much snow unless I'm at the top of a mountain and skiing down it.

It's funny how that storm turned out, in regards to my town and the amount of snow. As I mentioned, I measured about 47inches of snow throughout my yard and neighbors (no drifts), but I had friends in other parts of town with only 30-34 inches of snow. Quite odd...

Edit: sorry superedge, I don't mean to derail the thread

last winter was the worst in recent memory. one storm was 19", followed by a deep freeze and another 15" then another deep freeze and a couple more smaller storms
I hope to use the blower once or twice this year on some 8" fluffy snow. no more blizzards.

I thought my 36" in 24 hours was bad enough back in April 1994 when I lived in Minnesota.

These guys in Colorado really need a big machine !!
The greatest 24-hour snowfall officially measured in the world was the 75.8 that fell at Silver Lake, Colorado (in the mountains just west of Boulder) on April 14-15, 1921. The storm total was an amazing 95.0 over a 32 hour period.

Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!
