Moved it up from the barn down in the back in case the storm gets ahead of me and I can't get up to plow.

Ha. They started out saying 10 inches over night. The closer the storm got, the less snow they called for. Woke up this morning to about an inch. This has been the weakest winter I can remember. Even worse than last year.

Snow started before midnight, got about 5" by 3:30 when it shifted to rain. Now at 9am still rain and windy. The driveway looks like 4" of slush that I'm going to have to plow before it freezes later. Supposed to change back to snow afternoon. Don't think it'll be much though.
I'm glad we didn't get the deep snow that we were threatened with but I'm not looking forward to plowing in the rain.
I've plowed in a rain / snow mix before and gotten soaked in the process. Plowing snow can be fun, but not for this stuff. :(
Incidentally, the roof rake was worth getting.
So now I'm sipping coffee, listening to the wind, and trying to motivate myself to go back out again. :coffee:

Lowered the estimate to 3 to 5, here, then changing to rain. Early forecasts sell lots of bread and milk!

We don't seem to get a rush, on toilet paper, Don. I guess a diet of bread and milk, doesn't cause diarrhea, up here!

Chances are we all have at least one 'Tractor Supply' catalog laying around gathering dust. :{_}:
