    Love the pic of the dog, is he a black lab? I had a black lab, he loved being in the snow, had a hard time getting him back in the house. I now have a boxer mix, and she hates the cold, and does not really care for the snow all that much.

    My tractor broke down today too. Still was not done plowing as have been getting a fair amt every day. Last year was a record year and this year we are way past last Decembers 30" and just getting warmed up. Last year when there was 2' on ground it got very very windy and over 50deg and it all melted. Yet in January had to rent a bucket loader to move snow! Very very cold here now with below zero temps plus snow.

    Had planned on posting more pics but have not had a break in days.

    Hope everyone has a Merry Christmas!

    The little Black Female Lab disappeared an hour ago and its snowing so hard impossible to follow her tracks, appears someone must have picked her up....

    Took 2 of us 5hrs each to plow my driveway today. Another couple plows by morning just to keep up.

    SO much snow starting to look like grocery shortages already today as the passes seem to be closed in places on I90, semi's cannot get in to deliver. Had a set of Winter tires for wifes car supposed to come last thursday but UPS has been unable to deliver. Pretty amazing snowfall for this area... AND the new Blizzard for my truck is also delayed!!!

    Go figure when It shows up next week its supposed to RAIN!

    More pics tomorrow

    Man that is a lot of snow to fall at one time. Take it easy plowing all that, thats the stuff that really beats up the trucks. If you have the time you can probably make a ton of money if you are not to burned out from plowing regular customers. Its to bad thats its falling on Christmas...hope you get to spend some time with the family.

    I guess a BBQ dinner is out of the question.

    Right now yes. Had planned on New truck/plow but so far have not but wish I had.

    My neighbor across the street bought a new plow day or so before snow started and its already paid for! (western)

    I had a truck picked out but because of the poor fuel economy on a test tow 7.6mpg (6.4L Ford) I bought the KR instead. Had planned on picking it up anyway but I90 has been closed more than open.

    I did order a new Blizzard Plow but it never came in yet...

    I was just going to put it on my 4x2 for now, until I could pick up another truck.

    I am currently using the GT245 John Deere and a friends Polaris Quad but took 2 of us the 5 hrs today to get things cleaned up.

    SInce I Plowed we have gotten around 5" more with a bunch more due tonight. Its simply too much for little machines.

    A few pics of what I have to plow (my place)

    A very difficult place to plow as if I push either side of drive it makes it near impossible to back out of house garage.

    Aerial pic with colored dots:

    Red Dots indicate a 3' drop off

    Blue where I am now pushing

    Yellow push until full (its now at max amt)

    Pasture area is ok to push but its now much too deep to do anything.

    I will take pics of where a friend said he could drive with his 4x4 but buried it. Had to pull him out with my 4x2 w/ Chains!

    Above pic is from last year nothing compared to now

    I would say close to 3' of snow on my garage roof right now. Pics tomorrow in daylight!

    Time to plow again as another 5+" on the ground, If I wait until morning it will take me 3 days again.. LOL

    Should be interesting next week if it does warm up and we get rain. Will be plowing probably again tonight.

    Yes, For sale so mowed it out in the pasture.

    Want to move back to Arizona,,,, if this would be a normal year, it would be different but its usually freezing rain, sloppy, foggy with little snowfall.

    These pics to snowfall since a week ago wednesday morning when it started to snow.

    Its got to be over 40" so far in past wk or so.
