How many of you have been pushing snow with your Cubs either over the Thanksgiving holiday or currently?

Tell us how much and share some pics.

Plowed about 4" of heavy wet snow this morning and supposed to get another 3-5" tonight that I'll take care of in the morning. Need to put the chains on though.
No pictures this morning - will take some in the morning.
Ground is not frozen solid, so had to be careful not to dig into the lawn.

They were predicting up to 12", we got 1" and it's already melted off the streets and walks.

I was able to plow the 14" we got midweek. Then we had 30-40 mph winds all day Friday. Our road didn't drift much, but the neighbor's was so bad that I couldn't do anything with my Cub. Another neighbor came by with a big JD with a rear blade and couldn't break through the frozen drifts either. He finally came back with a skidster with a front bucket and spent about 90 minutes clearing a narrow track to their house. I was able to walk across the top of 3-4' drifts without breaking through and told my wife that this were her chance to make an igloo. She passed on it....

18" in Berkshire hills. Cub had no problem plowing light fresh snow. Started up with no issues after 45 minutes of oil pan & water intake line heating, battery maintainer going as always. Later, with Cub tucked back in the barn, on cross country skis, it was tough going making a trail in fresh deep snow...a trail that'll be better tomorrow and even better the day after that. Followed a line of coyote (probably) footprints.

Thought I would have the cub back together by now and the Blade & chains on but the Personnel Dept has over ruled me and i'm doing a more important job of insulating & new Drywall in the Master bedroom. TJ

...and add this for this mornings new snow: +8" more or less. That's a pretty good +2' snow fall.

The Cub wanted to start up but there was a frozen gas line--why do they sell us water? A touch or two of the heat gun and my usual heating systems and I was ready to get to it.
