    Newbie who has been lurking for about 2 years but has not posted.

    I live about 10miles north of Spokane in very eastern washington or as crow flies about 14miles from Idaho border.

    We are on pace to set a few snowfall records.

    30 inches of snow in december only to have warm and high winds melt it away. we have now gotten 38 inches in January with more in forcast!

    As soon as I can figure out how to post pics I will. Will make an attempt in this post.

    Even after a few warm days near 40 I measured 24" on roof of a car sitting outside.

    We have gotten over 2' in last week or so. Kids did not go to school this entire week

    Too much snow for my garden tractor

    My plow is a 2006 John Deere GT245. Does great until the bigstuff shows up

    The 580 M Turbo series 2 was a rental. more pics soon of the huge snowbanks from my GT245 I had to move

    Having grown up in the U.P. of Michigan I always had a plow vehicle with cab and HEATER. this is a bit tough when you have soooo much to plow & a road to home around 1000' long and a HUGE drive/parking area

    Why don't you use snowblower for john deer that be good for that stuff. I know they are over 1,300 dollars for snowblower.

    spokane washington is location

    thought about a snowblower for tractor but think next year it will be a pickup or something with cab and a heater. This tractor does great with under 5" of snow and a place to push it.
