    I do the driveway plowing with the Ford Super Duty 250. Glad you had a nice trip, The Lumberjack seems to be a great to eat. My wife went to the Wild Center so it's on my list of things to do this winter.

    I'd say we have around 6-8" on the ground and its STILL hammering. Had the sled out for a couple mile sprint through the fields......even tached it out on the one road.....just to knock the cobwebs out of it!!

    I'm stoked for the weekend....

    Nothing really happening here yet... Our forecast was downgraded a couple times and now it just looks messy... Calling for 3 inches overnight and then rain and ice all day tomorrow.

    About 3" at the Cottage, with blowing and drifting making it hard to really gauge. Maybe 6-7" at work. Much ado about nothing here.

    Roads are bad or the drivers are, listening to the scanner we have a lot of cars off the roads. Just heading out to clear the driveway.

    We ended up with close to 10".....like WS said there's another storm coming Saturday, should get more out of it. On a good note I took the sled for a ride on the farm yesterday to run it a bit, saw a couple of nice trees down (I'm assuming from Sandy), might get to run the saw and haul some wood out this weekend.....I'll post some pics of our area tonight and pics of the cutting I do this weekend. I need a little break from the living room project anyway!

    Zap those pics look awesome.......you're gonna end up with a heap of snow after this storm!

    Ugh, I think it's the drivers AND the cars they are driving...if you can't manage above 10mph on a lightly snow covered road, it just might be time to invest in some snow tires! SO many people rag on us for the snows on the AWD "I don't need that, my FWD with "all seasons" is fine" (yeah, right). I'll forgo a new iPhone or whatever every year for a set of good snows (we bought ours used for $100, paid $60 to mount, balance and dispose of the old worn ones). People probably pay that much for their fancy phone and data plan in a month. Quebec got that one right, with the law that requires them!!

    I love to laugh at people in SUVs run off the side of the road as I drive past with FWD, no traction control, no limited lip, but GOOD snow tires.

    People just dont understand that the only benefit of 4WD in the snow is a bit of hill climbing traction... to will let you get stuck faster. Most winter accidents happen from a loss of cornering or breaking traction and the only fix for that is the tires.

    Even worse are people who cheap out and only put on 2 snow tires, especially on the front of FWD cars... and then wonder why the car fishtails off the road.

    And our grand total as of this afternoon.... zero snow but a whole lot of wind and rain. Its in the high 30s/low 40s but it feels colder. We were out of town yesterday so I let the stove go out and haven't restarted it yet, probably later on.

    Hoping for better from the next one, but the weathermen cant make up their minds yet. They are calling for it to move in earlier now on Saturday, looks cold but the snow predictions are anywhere from just a couple inches to over a foot. We shall see.....

    I need a squeegee instead of a snow blower! It is a balmy 52 degrees here and the wind is gone :)

    I just spent three hours on the tractor moving the snow. We got over a foot at my house so far. I will need to go out again in the future and move some banks back to make room for the next storm. Hope we don't get six more inches today. Glad I am on vacation!

    Just had wind and rain here.. It's hard to believe it's this warm here! Have a new used snowblower to try out.. Think it will work well if it snows here..

    We used it all, the snowblower,rhino with the plow and the Ford with the plow... almost forgot the shovel. I think we received 18 - 24 easy.

    Looks like I'll go back out to see if I can get some tracks going to the wood piles, we did get wood in before the storm so were set.
