2. Can't say I blame you brother.

Last week, I walked out of the hotel to glass. I damn near fell down 12 times just getting to my truck! I was heading off to pick up a rental 26' flatbed. Dude. Not psyched. Not psyched at all! Fortunately, once I was out of the parking lot the roads were actually pretty good. Thank Christ! Can't imagine the white knuckle driving you have to deal with in this shit. You gots all my respect baby!

This afternoon and tonight. -8 with windchill now.
Sigh.
And then rain and sleet on Sat.
I am longing for Spring.

We are buried here in Madison. Going back to sleep till my 10 hour sleep break is done, then will crawl to the Pine Cone on the other side of town till the roads are cleared.

20. 12 - 24 inches. I pulled my ass scooping snow to get up my driveway last night after work

Nursing, in Montana.

12 to 24 inches. And I have to drive 45 miles there and back through the stuff again today.

21. Yes. I'm about to go out and blow snow after lunch

here in St. Paul, MN. About 6" or so. I'm hoping we get a break. I've run the snowblower more days than not for the past couple of weeks. I'm tired of it a little, I guess.

A Snow Emergency notice has gone out in St. Paul, so the plows will be out tonight and tomorrow.

25. Ha! Not mine.

But I have good gloves. Right now, they're sitting in front of a heat register. Today's blowing will take about 40 minutes, I suppose. Tomorrow, though, I'll have to fire it up again to get the lump at the end of the driveway after the plow goes by.

For old 73-year-old geezers like me, a two-stage snowblower is an essential tool. I'm not shoveling. Nope!

Two stage is the way to go. I've got an 80' driveway with 5' retaining walls at the bottom. Yeah, I'm not shoveling either!

29. My driveway is 60' by 24'.

No walls, though, except for the growing piles of snow alongside it.

I also do four houses worth of city sidewalks, since I have the only snowblower, but that's a walk in the park, really.

It's not that big a deal, really, but I hate having snow blown in my face, and the wind is blowing today. I'll have to alter my pattern to minimize that.

35. Well, I'm back inside, and 8" of snow that was in one place

is now in another place. Not too wet, the snow, so I could run the snowblower on one of its higher forward speeds and throw the snow a good long way. So, that's done. Whew!

I have a big full beard, and come back in the house with icicles hanging off of it. My wife always laughs at the sight. I have to admit that it's a funny look, for sure. Then, it's her job to go sop up the puddles from the snow I tracked in. That's our agreement. I go outside and operate the machinery. She kicks an old towel around on the floor. Fair trade!

we aren't going to get much. 3-6 inches forecast, which probably means 1-2.

I work from home when not at a customer site, did shopping yesterday, and will build a fire in a few minutes.....

Even te cats aren't bugging me to go out.

30. I just braved rain and sleet

to make a run to Walmart since we had one roll of toilet paper left in the entire house! That constitutes an emergency, lol

Hey all you folks in the heavy snow, I feel for you .... please stay safe.
