I'm in South Coastal Maine, the sweet spot for 4-8 inches. The range will depend on how much change-over we see to sleet, rain or freezing rain. ETA 9:00 AM Saturday through 8 PM. Just in time to mess with a Saturday night concert. At least it's o the weekend so I can enjoy cleaning it up at my leisure.

Solution for slush? A full sized machine with a good impeller should do it.

I'm just below you in NH and smack-dab in that "predicted" sweet spot. I listen to four different channels WHDH, WMUR, NECN, and Accuweather and none of them are predicting that we will change over on the north side of Rt. 495, it is supposed to stay heavy wet snow and they are warning outages if we get 6"+. Well, I have a gen but still not wishing for that. Time will tell I guess.

I'll +1 you on the full size machine with good impeller. The impeller kit was the best move I made even before I swapped the engine. Cheers to you and the awesome old Gilson. Hope we finally get some snow !

The meltdown is under way ...

not much near the coast in the NY area, will end up with maybe 2", then turn to slop. Wifey going to northern Westchester, they will get a little more maybe 5" or so.

Really hoped for a chance to try the 'new' 6.5 hp Toro 3650 (SS), but that is semi apart, with parts ordered. For the moment I will have to rely on the little Toro Powerlite (3hp) and shovel.

Our nor'easter is going to be all rain. Northern part of the province will be snow though. Lucky them.

HS 928 TCD. It's Canadian eh! (Sure I'm done modifying it, for now, until next time.......)

Got just over an inch then turned to rain. Just a big
mess now. Not worth firing up any snowblowers.
