This is the Berner finishing off the evil Sabercat I was working on a while ago.

I'm in Kingston. I think we got about 10" in all. It had the consistency of cement and I had to clear the driveway in the morning and again in the afternoon.

Where are you, Brad? I’m in Hanover. We only have ~8”, but it is as you said, heavy and wet. It wasn’t a pleasant snow blowing experience for me today.

I'm in southern Quebec and it will be the first time I didn't have to use the snowblower even once before Christmas. We had a couple snowless Christmases before, but we usually got 2 or 3 decent snowfalls in November/December which required blowing the driveway before melting down a few days later.

This year, in my area we haven't lost sight of the grass even once. We had about an inch which quickly melted down. The machine was ready in late October and hasn't seen any action since. :\ Some other areas an hour or two away are much luckier snow-wise.

Hi fellow "south quebecer", à peu près la même chose ici, quoi que la première neige au mois de novembre que l'on a reçu m'a permis de sortir ma 1 phase pour nettoyer le parking, ça lui a donné un peu d'exercice lol...

Finally . .. . will be getting the first meaningful snow fall this evening and over night.

At least 8" predicted.

It'll be nice while it lasts. By mid next week showing 40F and rain . . . 2020. . . weird year and weird winter. At least here anyway.

Northern Illinois here about to get the first real significant snow 4-7 inches, followed by ice/sleet/rain. Not ideal, but I'll take it.

Looks like 5-9" on Fri. here in MN. Woo Hoo more testing time. Just got the kids bigger blower over to him last night. That Yardman 5hp engine is anemic so after this winter we are going to re-power it with a Predator 6.5 after he watched some of the videos with blowers that use the HF engine, he was impressed.

We have flurries this morning, but sadly it will be 45 today! It seems like PA got more snow back in my youth! It’s too cold to bust out the bike, but no snow to bust out the blower. To the gun range it is!

The last time the Toledo forecast was for an inch of snow in Northern Ohio, we got 8".
They're predicting the same thing this weekend, so I'm off to ensure everyone is ready for a foot.
I can read the radar fairly well and find it just as accurate to look there and make my own prediction.
But Accu-Weather turns the gain on their radar up so high, Virga looks like snowfall.
Try the 'My Radar' app. It seems to be more representative of what is happening on the ground where we're at.

We got some snow for Christmas, and snow/ice mix, but it's been in the 30s-40s since. They're talking about getting some freezing rain tonight. On the bright side, it gave me some time to work out a few electrical gremlins in the John Deere.
