Shoveling Snow

Gary, are you having fun shoveling snow? I heard at noon yesterday that there was 8" on the ground at the airport in Indianapolis (spelling?) With the wind, it's probably blowing in faster then you can shovel it.
Don't worry just fire up a Massey.

RE:Shoveling Snow

Surprisingly we did get the 7"-8" of snow but it was a real non-event!!  We had strong winds out of the north and the snow just blew passed everything here.  I had a little 3' drift in front of our garage door and on the front walkway but it was really no big deal.  In fact, we can still see most of the yard grass.   I am sure John B had a different take on it but we came out okay.  Moved the drifts with the MF 65 and loader (surprisingly it started!!) and we were off to the hospital to enjoy the next generation of Massey Collectors!!

RE:Shoveling Snow

It wasn't a big deal over here in Shelby County either.  Certainly far from an epic "blizzard".  We did have white-out conditions several times during the day Wednesday.  The high winds were initially out of the east and then swung around winding up out of the north.  That made life easier for me than if it had been blowing out of the west.  The news said we had 10 inches.  All I could ascertain here is we had something between 1" (where it all blew off the ground) and 3 feet (in the drifts, and mostly deposited across my barnlot where it needed to be moved...)  And, of course, the side walk which had to be shoveled by hand was about 18" all the way...   We didn't have to go anywhere yesterday, so I waited to plow out the lane until this morning when it was no longer windy.  (Sorry, everyone, my loader/blade tractor isn't a red one...)

By the way, does anyone know what happened to 2012???

Happy New Year in a few days!
