Thanks for the link. If this winter is comparable to last winter, then I will get some decent usage out of my Yamaha... Yay!

Don't forget to shoot a video of your blue tank ripping up the snow for all of us to see!

81 inches total officially in St Cloud last year with the snowiest March in 17 years. Started off the season with 11 inches in December and lots of little 3 to 5 inch snow falls throughout the winter. The biggest snow was about 15 inches at one time. I even wore out my skids last year! I bought Robalons so I am ready plus I will have the 8/26 Gilson ready too.

Thanks to OP Simplicity for posting this. Avid deer hunter and motorcycle rider here and loved this link. We were just talking about this yesterday and consulting the Farmer's Almanac. If this rings true, I will be having some fun with the older snowblower I just purchased. Kansas weather gets really funky in the winter and we experience every kind of snow. In the latter part of March this year we got 12 inches in 1 night, 2 days later melted off, 11 inches a few days later, and it was here for a week before melt off. I have lived here all my life, so not complaining at all but it is funny since most DOT's use salt here and have started the whole beet juice idea as well. Your driveway is usually a blast, but clearing the gutter/curb after the city trucks come by can be an experience. Best of luck to everyone.
