    Another few more inches and you are at our normal annual snowfall.

    Wow, that's a lot of snow. I think I'm happy with my couple inches and drifts.

    Do you need a shorter chain on that plow?

    Lot of snow... the guy that normally does the driveway (about a mile long) fro my parents' house up there couldn't even get into the driveway (piles from the town plowing were 6' tall) with his F350/curtis plow... we had to get the farmer down the street to plow it with his 4020 JD tractor :D

    I'm curious to see where your located in Vermont? I'm in New Yorrk on the New York / Vermont border near Rutland County and we got between 14"-18". The roads were the worse I've seen in years. Just as I was getting done plowing last night, the 4 wheel drive stopped working on my 2005 GMC 2500 HD. I got a kick out of your picture of the dog. I had to shovel a path for my Golden Retreiver to get out as I had 3 foot drifts by all my doors. Nice pictures. It sure was one of the biggest storms we've seen in a very long time. Hope my truck doesn't cost me a fortune to fix.

    I'm glad we had a miss. The satellite showed snow right near me, sometimes on three sides of me. I hate deep heavy wet spring snow, at that depth, I'm hoping for your sakes it wasn't too wet.

    Super hard on equipment.




    We had one like that in Feb '09

    Measured in middle of road close up, after two days of settling

    That's a stop sign, and those are "Magnum PI" gates if you ever saw that show. Electronic gates that I've finally convinced them to leave open during the winter. Try shoveling those gates out, they go down almost to the road bed, and are tall, and swing real wide. Hate them. I had time to photo because these were taken two days after the storm, still doing catch up but almost done.

    Murder on the equipment, I fear and dread those storms.

    Did you see my video from this year, of plowing 3 ft. at night? Drifting snow 4 ft plus deep. Had to hold camera with one hand.

    Great Photos Stargazer! I like the chains, where can I get a set? Mine are getting rough and I had to repair them 3 times in the last storm.

    I remember that storm. I had my old 1989 Chevy 2500 3/4 ton with an 8' Fisher at the time. Between me an my uncle I couldn't coun't how many times we got stuck. I should have chained up. But, I didn't and I paid the price. Getting stuck sucks.
