Just about the same up here.

Seems that I just get it cleaned out, then it starts snowing again, just part of living in the North Country!  ;)

Well, you know how the people in NYC are, anything North of White Plains is "Upstate" or "North Country".   :D

Come on over to my place after a foot of snow Red, see how you like it then. The driveway is on the shady side of the hill, it doesn't melt, just turns to ice.

I feel for you guys up North, I just don't want to help you out by taking any.

Maybe we could go to the Post Office and get one of the largest "Flat Rate" boxes, fill it with snow and send it to you!   ;D

I'm sure it is Don, and I appreciate the offer, but I have plenty.

I'm running out of room to put the snow removed from my driveway.

I have a ZM Industries "snow pusher" scheduled to be here tomorrow forenoon, that should help with the snow because then I can just keep pushing the snow up and over the snowbanks!

I wanted to get a blower for the tractor, but they (JD) wanted to much $$$$.

Sounds like a bunch of New Yorkers on this site! Thought I was one of just a rare few trying to live this life style in this state...  ::)

This was a week ago & I posted with the Frito Fire posting last week in this forum... but the road is relevant to this ...... check out the first few minutes & then cut.... WHAT do you think my farm road looks like now??? :o

That's a nice looking snow pusher Chuck  did you get the bag drag option?  I am interested in how it works currently I just use the bucket on my Massey 30B. Another 10cm to move today and more on the way if you can believe the weatherman.

Go figure, no new snow to push.

The 960 is the one that I got, it's 6' wide, weighs about 285#.

Don, I didn't get the drag-back, I just didn't feel like spending the extra $$$ right now!

The UPS tractor trailer arrived this morning about 8:30 and I was clearing out snow on the back side of the garage before 9:00.

Really works great, I think "if I wanted to", I could get my sawmill out of the garage now.  I think it'll stay there till about April.

Yup, same thing only smaller, Ray.

We're projected to get snow on 5 of the next 7 days!
