I make my snow piles downwind from the prevailing winds and that sure makes it better as far as drifting. It has been a bugger lately.

Last night the predictions were for an inch or so of snow and it finishing up by 8am. Almost noon now, it's still trying to build into the blizzard category and they keep extending when it's gonna stop. I've got about 4" on the driveway now. I just hope it quits before dark or I'll be finding out how good the headlights really are.

Nah, it's not leaking oil. It's just marking it's territory.

The storm missed us this time. It passed to the east of us. However, they're predicting lake effect snow for this weekend but only a few inches.

Growing up we had a 400' driveway that was uphill to the road. Our "snow machine" was an IH 284 with a McKee 6' snowblower on the front. It was a 2 hour chore to mount that snow blower on the tractor. It weighed so much in the up position the front tires would flatten out and we had a 6' woods blade we had to mount to the back so the rear tires would stay on the ground, add snow chains that were made from a very heavy chain, and we would plow out not only our driveway but the neighbors as well because the turning radius was so wide.

I remember it would throw snow easily 100' and no matter which way you pointed the snoot it came back in your face... Good memories with that setup...

I was taught to always clear much wider than the driveway, this way if plowing was needed later, or some drifting occurred you were ok. Also where the driveway meets the road clear 50' each way off the road further than the plow did, this gave the plow trucks room for their plows to clear before the driveway and not blocking it back in...

That first snow, the ground wasn't frozen under it at first and I kind of rutted up the yard a bit. Two days later, we got another couple of inches but I had a better idea of what I'm doing by then and the ground was brick hard by then.

Our snow has stalled out recently. The warm ups have removed all but the biggest piles. Officially, we've received a little less than 60" of snow so far this winter. February's supposed to start out with an artic blast. If Lake Michigan is still open that could mean more lake effect snow.

.....They don't call them the Great Lakes for nothing.. :lol: I live 3 miles of the coast of Ontario and plowed or moved snow since the last week of Deer season...Oswego ( 25 miles east ) got 6 feet in two days..We were more fortunate..I would guess about 10 feet till the middle of Jan, when I beat feet for Florida..BTW.. I started setting my plowing cub up similar to yours ..Good tips :worthy: ...I may add a cab for the wind also... :lol:
