Looks like it may be our turn.

Our weather forecast for Sat. This will be our heaviest snowfall this winter. Nothing like the northeast has been hit with but still..... I'm the only guy I know who has a two stage blower, except for the old guy next door who got one of those cheap red things from Lowe's a month or two past. Anyway, here's what we're supposed to get.

The 521 had a fairly good workout a few times last year. I'm very pleased with it. I don't believe I ever used it before installing tne Clarence kit. It does a fine job. Still haben't put the drift bars on... No need to yet.

Too cold out and roof problems abound around here , so you guys can have it all now, we have too much at the moment

Wish it would stop for a couple weeks and get warm enough to melt some of it off

The meltdown is under way ...

!HEAVY SNOW.

That just might mean the snow will be mixed with rain & you won't get a lot, you will just get "Heavy" snow.

At least where I am, that is all I have got this year.
I get 5 inches and right at the end it turns to rain, and of course the rain part has to be at 2 am when everyone is sleeping.

I hope you get what you want to play in the snow.
I hope it is over by Monday, I got to run to Carlisle.

I hate shoveling SNOW!

I really don't think we're going to get much a'tall. But, I'm going to put the chains on the truck anyway. You never know..
I wonder how many people still use chains on their cars and trucks? My truck is only 2WD. I'm not spending another few grand for the convenience of pushing a button or pulling a lever to use something only once or twice a year. I can put chains on in just a few minutes.

I've never had a pickup truck and ford hasn't offered a 4wd van in ages so all my vans have been 2wd. the old goodyear wranglers were great in the snow. my last three vans have been gmc safari 2wd vans and I'm running / ran and traction hasn't been a problem. Dunlop radial rovers on the back of them. I think Michigan banned chains and studded tires back in the '70's
