I know, right? Pictures would be the last thing on my mind if I had gotten 2 feet. Especially after having such a long streak of 50 degree weather. :dizzy:

Ok, fine! Eat your hearts out gentlemen!!!

I plowed the driveway yesterday...16" then.

This morning...another 20".

That blue Scout in the one picture is SOA, sitting up on 35's. The roof of the truck is probably at 7'.

Then I got stuck trying to help out a neighbor. The road grader had made quite a pile. I made it through it ok, but couldn't back up out of it.

I got one of my other Scouts and yanked it out..no problem.

We got 35" up at our house.

Talked with a customer in Calumet yesterday. They don't even have any snow. He said they were calling for 4"-6" saturday but that wasn't a guarantee. I asked him when was the last time they didn't have a white Christmas, he said he didn't know, nobody in town is that old!!!

You're pretty much right...Scouts are pretty tough, but they don't have the weight or the size to push a 8' plow or do commercial stuff. Especially when it's that deep.

Here's my 1983 Sears Craftsman 4.5 hp snowblower trying to get through the snow.

The snow was at least 6" above the top of the shoot.

I (and my dad) will beg to differ. That's all he used when he first started. Granted, the lots aren't the same size as they are now, but back in their day they were top of the line work trucks. I can remember vividly riding along with him in his, that's where I learned to plow.

Can't say if he ever had an 8' blade on one, but good old Meyers plows, belt driven hydraulics and rods through the dash & firewall to open\close the valves for the plows. Some even had the manifold on the driveshaft hump with the hoses right into it.

Boy, that was a long time ago.

I'm not saying they're bad trucks...I wouldn't have so many of them if they were ;)

For residential areas with less than 24" of snow, yes, they do awesome. I couldn't imagine trying to plow a big parking lot with the thing though! That's what I was trying to get at.

How typical is this for snowfall for you. Do you normally get walloped, then a stretch of nothing or what?

Thanks for the pictures, I'm thinking of throwing some soap shaving's though the chipper so the kids can have a white Christmas:D

This storm isn't too typical. The weatherman said it's the 4th worst storm in Denver since 1913.

We get the 4-12" snowfalls about every couple weeks starting in about October and ending in May. I think Conifer has an annual average snowfall of about 90". We live at 8800 feet above sea level.

Soap shavings in the chipper? That's a good one! LOL

... I wish it would snow enough to have about 10 plowable events this season

Did you see my post in another thread? I posted stats from the 2004/2005 season where we ended up with 32, 2"+ plows but only had 5 in before Jan and 3 of those were after the 20th of Dec.

There still is hope.

its becomeing a tropical environment no more cold i think the cold is going to slowly diminish away and the world is going to burn up from the heat and thats when it will be the end of the world, I dont have to worry though that wont be for my life time, 1 person cant stop it theres just too many people in the world and theres not enough space..

57 and rainy here today. It's not that big of a deal that it hasn't snowed yet this winter, but the fact that it is still in the high 50's the day before Christmas Eve is pathetic.

Frekin jersey is the same way this year, weve ONLY had a couple freezing mornings so far, under 32deg in the am hours... sucks, couple days in a row in DEC were 24-28 in the morning but that was it. Heck im still washing my cars nad the hose is still on.. Tomorrow is supposed to be 72deg out January 6th 07 :realmad: Im waiting, i doubt well see any cold weather this year unless we get lucky in the end of january or something... good thing i didnt splurge and try to rush getting me $4k+ plow for the new F350 i just got... god the payments on that AND the truck would have been a double whammy for me now . At least my two 2k+ Simplicity snow blowers were all paid off already.:crying:
