Ugly weather!

Snowing and blowing today and tomorrow. Visibility near zero out in the open roads. Forecasting up to 30cm (12 in.), winds blowing to 60kmh (35 mph) and temperature falling to around -25C.
So far this year we have had around +50cm.
I've logged more time with the blower this year than the previous 3 years combined.
Just hope we don't lose power.

Dang, with that kind of temps and wind, the wind chill has got to be a killer. Stay warm there buddy!

I'm pretty much retired from the forum thing, but I check in every now and then.

Now that sounds brutal. Keep warm and stay safe. For comparison, we got a little freezing drizzly this morning with more supposed to come tonight.

<sigh>

The only time I get to use a snowblower is when we take a batch of prototypes out to Colorado for testing....because of this:

Yes it was miserably especially when the snow blew back into my face.
Here are some pictures that were taken at various locations and sent into the local TV station.

Brrr, that made me shiver just looking at the pictures. I like how it looked like the door was still shut with the pattern of the door imprinted in the snow. Kitty seemed a bit confused by it all too.
