Started snowing Wed and stopped on Thu night. Overall 40". They are saying we may have another on just as big coming this Thu and Fri. Think about that, +/- 8' in 2 weeks. I was sick so my neighbor took the IH out to plow so no actual plow pics.

Yep, beginning to look like we may get a real winter this year. Two storms and I am already out of places to store snow. I did keep our road open, but had to plow in zero visibility all night.
Put the V plow to a real test after the storm let up, a fella down towards the river got his plow stuck plowing his 3/4 mile drive. I had to plow uphill to him through better than 3 feet with drifts. Once I got past the icy tight uphill turn at the entrance with multiple pushes, put her in V and drove right on up. Had to back all the way down as he could not back uphill out of the way. Made two more passes, and then went over to break one of his neighbors out.
3 hrs - $450 - no real problems thank God. I wish folks around here would realize that we got to plow with the storm, even if it means plowing every 2 hours.
