Damn! I feel like we dodged a bullet here.
We just had 5" when it shifted to rain.
Spent Monday night clearing snow off my shelterlogic shed, boat, and camper until the rain started.
Tuesday I only had to clear the 3" of slush from the drive and walkways. Good thing I did cause everywhere else froze to a sheet of ice.
The area where I was to have the carport built, well that's a sheet of ice now. :( The rescheduled build date had been Tuesday, :roll:
so much for that. Might as well be 2' of snow for as far as they are concerned.
May be screwed till April. (7 months deposit to build?) :roll:
I do feel for you guys dealing with the deep stuff. I'd be willing to bet that some of you after clearing your drives of the deep stuff still can't get out cause the town hasn't got around to clearing the road. That's often the case for me when we get hammered.

My 57 did a hell of a job in the big storm pushing through like a trooper until the bolts holding the right side axle tube pulled out of the transmission :(

Before that happened I plowed my 400 foot driveway, the parking lot of a Garage up the street, my one neighbors two driveways one of which is a huge parking lot and another neighbors 300 foot driveway.

Now i have to swap things over to the 49 today before tonight's snow storm, the plow will be the easy part but getting the weights onto it will be a bi*ch by myself. I may just to a tire swap since the 57 already has weights on it.

Do the tire swap! Much easier.
Hope the repair goes well for the 57.
