    It wouldn't be bad if it was just snow but heart attack snow. I have a two stage snow blower and the snow bc it has so much water in it won't even come out of chute. So get shovel out.

    Thanks for the heads up!!
    I saw that on the news!!, but I just checked again, and they're calling for cold enough nights over the next few days, but after today some low humidity.
    Here it poured rain all night, with howling winds the whole night too.
    Still raining, but by the time that stuff you got gets here, we shouldn't have any humidity left.
    Hoping we miss it---We had enough---Over 7 Feet !!!

    I know what you mean---These wet snows just stack up in the upper stage of my Gravely & turn into Slush bricks, and just fall out on the main blower body. PITA !!!

    Boy I sure feel for you guys. That front rolled thru here yesterday around dinner time.
    It was just one line of thunderstorms, but the winds & rain made a real mess here. The thing is it only lasted about 5 minutes & everything in my back yard was blown all over the place, except my smokers & grills.
    I sure hope you guys get some good weather soon!

    And ---Al----I guess we had our 2 days of "Good Weather".

    I used to do that with my shovels & my blower chute, but now that I'm old & of poor health, I just call in Bear Jr & his Boss V-Plow. He can get the job done in minutes, and our driveways are connected anyway.
    Better remove that snow from the smoker----Smoking Snow doesn't work too good!

    OK Guys!!
    Looks like that's it for us here in SE PA. No more Snow (Knock on Wood).

    So we ended up with a grand total of 86"----Yeah, That's 7 foot, 2 inches for the 2017-2018 Snow Season.

    Right now we got a Blue Sky, Bright Sun, and 63° (11:30 AM).

    Have a Great Summer, Guys!!!
