Snow

Anyone have snow yet ?  I got my first real snow last week, I have about 5", enough so my tracked rig "floats" over logs and rocks.

Nothing in Nova Scotia yet. We've had some flurries but not even a cm and not longer than a day.
Looking forward to it though.

We got around 4" with some interesting drifts that 55 mph wind will produce.  95% of my driveway or about 400 yards was bare.  The other 40 yards was cross drifts up to 3 feet deep.

The wind was just terrible.  You were afraid the trees were going to come crashing down on the house and shop.  I could have sent Wolfy an airmail letter by just throwing it up in the wind.   :P

I had my butterfly net at the ready, Stan! ;D   Nothing but a skift of snow here, but we had the same 50+mph winds driving it.   I-29 was closed at Vermillion due to visibility problems and that's just 10 miles away from us. :coffee:

Those high winds wreaked havoc between Kadoka and Rapid I guess.  They put a travel warning on Hwy 34 from Belle Fourche to Whitewood too.

Hope things stay better for time.  I can take snow and cold pretty well but those high winds are just misery.

I do not get much wind up here, but when I do it is spectacular, and I can always count on power outages during a good wind storm.

I have a 1/4 mile of driveway, so when it gets plugged it is a chore cleaning it out, it is good to have a tractor with a front end loader..!
