Snow

Received about 6” of wet snow overnight. Still falling...

Looks like I’ll be pushing snow today.

Yep, we got some also. I haven't ventured out yet to see how much, but the '47 Cub might be a little bit busy later today, though from the reports I'm hearing, more is on the way today and maybe tonight into tomorrow morning.

It sounds like you guys will be busy. Post some pics if you get a chance. We're supposed to just get a couple of inches later today.

Per your request...

Woke up to this...

Getting my '47 ready to push some snow.

The barn roof dumped an 18" pile of snow at the threshold. No problem.

Up / down my road for the fun of it.


Cleared my driveway (about 125' long), then moved on to clear the road between us and the neighbors. Then did his driveway and three other neighbor's drives. Temps were hovering around 30 degrees F, so wasn't bitterly cold; like "my fingers are frozen" cold. Very comfortable. Nellie performed like she should. Glad I've been running her about every other day around the yard since December. So much nicer to start up the Cub and not worry about something wrong.

Thanks for the pictures. Now I wish I had tire chains on my '47, but I don't really have any major slopes to navigate, but....

Great pictures! Yep, that looks really wet and heavy snow. I'd imagine that the guys with snow blower struggled with that a bit. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks Mr Stanton, it’s still a long way until the end of March, we could have a lot of bad weather between now and then.
I heard on the news this morning that Missouri has had bad snow falls, with 7 people died. Our thoughts are are with the families and also with our forum members in Missouri

Missouri did get hit with larger amounts of snow than we normally do. Montgomery City, which is northwest of the St. Louis area reported 20 inches of snow. St. Louis was about a foot of snow. My area was about 8 to 9 inches.

These amounts and the timing of the snow cause some major traffic problems. It took my wife's nephew 10 hours to make a 2 hour trip home. It took my youngest daughter about 3 and half hours to make an 35 minute trip home from work. One lady spent 16 hours on I-44, and most of that was spent just about 2 miles from her exit. It came in just before rush hour Friday evening and a lot of people left work early, which I think hindered MODOT's efforts to clear the roads. But, most of the snow fell overnight Friday night.

We got an additional 3 to 3 and half inches here last evening. I shoveled the walk and push snow with the '47, but with the additional snow, it probably needs to be done again. No pictures as it was a light rain falling yesterday. Luckily temps stayed above freezing, so it wasn't any ice or anything like that. They're predicting a similar storm next Friday into Saturday, and then the temperatures will drop significantly. A move south looks better and better each time we get winter weather.

We got all ice here. No power since 6:30 this morning, had to get the 4630 out and push a tree out of the road in front of the house from the neighbors property after hooking the generator up.

I think ice storms are the worst as they are more likely to cause power outrages, plus it's impossible to drive on ice. I feel for you having to deal with the ice. I pray that they get your power restore quickly.

Most of the issue with MoDOT in the KC area was the rain that preceded the snowfall. They cannot apply any chemical or salt treatment of the roads while rain's coming down; washes it away. I know our County crew didn't get to my road until late yesterday. After the majority of the snow fell, we had about 1/2" overnight.

Forgot yesterday to include a neighbor's drive a little north of me. Cleared it today. She's got a nice asphalt drive that's easy to push. Replowed my drive and the house next door again. The '47 is running good. Very pleased.

It amazes me that our news is picked up and broadcast in Ireland. Wow. Thanks for the thoughts and prayers, Bernard.

Ice storms can be so bad; worse than snow. Hope your area gets thawed out soon, Shane.
