Angry Bah-umbug!!

Thought we would get some good snow for Christmas so I could play with my snowmaster, but Mother Nature just keeps teasing me with one inch at a time...now they're calling for another inch sometime between tonight and tomorrow!!!

Am I the only one that actually looks forward to a good snowfall, and enjoys being outside cleaning it??

Since this is my first year with a snowblower, I'm also looking forward to lots of snow. We are actually getting a bit today. Suppose to be about 4"-6".

I'm torn. I like the look of a beautiful blanket of snow and the fun of getting out cutting a path in it but then again it's nice to not have to cut that path at times too.

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

I think there are several of us in Northern Virginia that just got new snowblowers this year and I think we all are hoping for enough to initiate them before winter is over.

Right now that doesn't look to hopeful as the long range forecast is only showing rain and the possibilities of some freezing rain and icy conditions.

There are only 2 days in the next 14 day forecast where they are calling for accumulative snow...and only 1-2" each time....blah!!!!

I've had a snowblower for the last 10 years or so, but this is my first year with my brand new snowmaster, and I've only been able to play 3 times with it so far. My last snowblower was a MTD 22" 5hp, so you can all imagine why I'm exited about this one

At least your getting some snow. We are getting heavy rain tomorrow. I'm on my 33yr of plowing snow and there is nothing more exciting than driving around in a white out. When I am done, I look forward to taking out my 69 and doing all my walks and path for the lab. The last storm I even got to take out the power king and did my drive way with that in stead of plowing it. That was real cool since the last time that blower worked on that tractor was in the 80's

My blower is broke, so I am holding off wanting snow until it is repaired. But, when I first got my Honda, could not wait for the snow.
