Last snow I hope!

Rained all day Wednesday and started to snow about 4. Water was running all through the yard and down the driveway. Ended up with about 10 inches of wet snow over the existing ice and water. The Deluxe 28 ran right through it, and threw it 30 or 40 feet. Never missed a beat! First real snow of the season and hopefully the last..Going to be some serious flooding this year.

yeh this was some wicked storms we were getting here in NE Pa. not a big accumulation, but rain-sleet-snow-rain-sleet-snow and then temps down to 2 degrees tonight, you have to STAY AFTER IT otherwise you have a skating rink driveway and crusty ice snow.
I ashed the driveway at least 10 times in the past 3 weeks.
that machine of yours is doing some impressive work there. if it can throw that stuff, that far, it can throw anything...

having said that, I'd still like to get one more blammer snowstorm in March, to try out my 3-stage machines in...

just say NO to Chinese made ANYTHING !

Have to say, I'm ready for it to be done. Nine more inches for us today in Southern RI - we have had an extraordinary amount of snow for our region this year.

Had an up-close visitor this morning as the snow began to fall once again:

Ready for Spring - although the 622 has kicked butt this year - zero issues and runs like a spotted ape!

Yesterday I shoveled the roof one last time as the temp was warming up to 40 degrees. Today everything froze. Another roof cave-in today ... a gas station this time. Snowing lightly today and down to single digit temps by morning. Going ice fishing tomorrow. Eighteen inches of ice on the pond...thickest I can remember. Spring in two weeks. Help!

I hate to bring the bad news, but I hear after a week to week and half "warmup" it will be cold again with chances for snow the last two weeks of March.

It's March for [email protected]' sake, I'm supposed to be working in the garden, not blowing snow.
I'm done with winter!
