Gonna get 6 inches and Amazon has still hasn't delivered the carb I need for a good customer! Said it would be at my door yesterday by 8pm, NOPE. Good old Amazon! I offered a spare Craftsman 2 stroke paddle job but he declined. Oh well, Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow....

Oh, that sucks!

It's a very heavy wet snow, so he will be struggling with the shoveling!

WOW, NWS upgraded us to 8" - 11" ! They're typically the conservative ones when it comes to accumulation.

Snow looks very heavy:

Same here in northeast MA! For several days they were calling for a coating to an inch this AM, then around 4 PM yesterday the forecast suddenly changed to 4-8" and right now it's coming down like crazy. It'll be the first "real" snow this season!

~1994 Ariens 924084 (ST1032) "papa bear": restored, re-engined, real nice!
1991 Ariens 924050 (ST824) "mama bear"
Toro PowerCurve 1800 "baby bear"

Be alert! America needs more lerts.

One of the town plows just rolled by. I can see this is the type of snow where you lose your mail box

It could be worse... like a giant tree branch that almost took out your roof (but instead took out the deck railing and a skylight)



It's the wet heavy snow that will clog up most 2-stage snowblowers. Be careful, everyone.
