Wow, sounds like you really got your share of snow!
We had our first snow last night, but it was'nt more
than a meager inch.

Watching the weather channel last night and it sounded like you're going to get a heck of a lot of it out east. Stay safe and stay warm out there!

Oh ya.. still getting it. News said they think 18inchs so far near me... Hard to say becouse of the drifting. Still whiteout out... has to be a good inch or two a hour coming down.

Just got done digging out, it was no big deal. I am going to go over the driveway one more time with the 2 cycle Toro then put the salt down.
I had to change the float bowl gasket out on the Bolens since I just took it out of storage added gas and it leaked 5 minute change then fired the beast up and off she went even the pile in front of the driveway left by the plow trucks was no problem.
