I've been a little remiss in winter prep. Now we got a dump coming Saturday and Sun. Snow isn't the worst, for some reason, we tend to lose power at the most inconvenient times. Made the mandatory milk, bread, toilet paper run last night. Gassed up the Tractor, hooked up the plow, put chains on the three-wheeler, located the shovels, charged up the generator battery, located jugs to fill with water, filled the water troughs, got ten gals of kerosene, got a fifth of whiskey (medicinal purposes-cabin fever rememdy)
Still on the list, get to the video store for something to watch, move the sheep into the barn, pile more wood next to the outdoor boiler, I know I'm forgetting something.....

Around here every thing is melting! The roads are spongy now with mud every where. Glad I kept the snow off the driveway cause it is firm and dry. Strange weather for January one of our coldest months of the year. Mark H.

Same here with the storm warnings, but not as much, bite my tongue, knock on wood......stay warm and well.

My 8N wouldn't do much in that amount of snow. I got a Ford 4000 ready to go & in the barn. (My driveway is a little over 1,100 feet long) I usually plow out three or four neighbors as well- Just to aggravate the one I have problems with and don't plow out.

Stevie, what an inconsiderate male chauvinist you are!!! Making your wife put her car outside just for a tractor!!! (Guess I won't mention that my 2N with chains and blade on is in the garage and my wife's van is down in the barn.)

Would that amount of snow shut everything down? I heard where 1" of snow shut down Raleigh, NC. Sheesh.

i used t have that kinda fun in seattle - they'd get a skiff of snow and everybody panicked - busses crsswise on bridges, everything. i'd gas up the 53 packard, bundle up my 3yr-old and we'd go sightseeing & try t find a hill we couldn't climb. never did need the shovel or sand.:)

Naa! thats just enough to send everyone to the stores and have a run on milk and bread. The last time had enough to shut everything down was a storm simmelar to this but it turned up the coast and fed off the ocian then dumped it on the back side of the storm. The we had 30+ inches in one night. in 92 or 94 that was I think. That was anough to shut (everything) down. For Pa. that is.
