Big storm coming

Well it seems winter is here ,only took yr1/2. we are looking at 12''- 24'' and a blizzard warning to boot. Part of me is saying yahoo, the other part of me is. I will be out plowing in my truck 24+ hrs straight . But at least I play with my 69 and see how the 9.5hp intek runs.

Weatherman was forcasting 12"-18" up your way and 12"-36" for NYC. Of course there's the obvious solution if you don't like the weather forcast: change channels. No 2 ever seem to match so pick the one you like the best.

New York City should get off easy..8" to 12"..that's nothing..
Boston however is a different story..they are in line for 2 feet or more..

Here in Western NY we will have a foot on the ground by morning..
that rates a big *yawn* from Buffalo, Rochester and Syracuse!
things should be completely back to normal by Noon tomorrow..

I will get to take out the Ariens in the morning though!

Ended up with 32'' with lots of drifts . woke up at 7am on friday and got to be bed 11pm sat. My 69 ariens ran great, But I think that the 9.5 hp intek sits further back on the tractor than the old 5hp did, The front end pops up more. Snow dust from the blower really wake's you up better than coffee.
