Well, since I started this post, I'll add another.
Forecast for Lone Jack (i.e. KCMO) was 8"-12"; we got 12" by Wednesday morning. The wind picked up on Tuesday evening, overnight, then on Wed morning to 35mph+ (official blizzard).
By Tuesday evening, MODot had closed I-70 from KC to St. Louis
, but it reopened at 6:30 AM Wed. First time I remember that happening.
The blizzard conditions produced some nice looking snow drifts; 24"-48" high. I dug out in front of my barn doors, went inside to start the Cub and
I had left the light switch on DIM from a week ago when I last used it. Ouch. The battery charger didn't produce enough juice to start it and I couldn't get any response from hand cranking, so off to TSC for a new battery. Started right up!
The snow was difficult to push, but managed well enough. The thin layer of sleet/ice below the snow didn't help for traction. I do know this much, I have three neighbors who are VERY grateful that I own a Cub with a blade. Spent most of yesterday playing in the, er, I mean pushing
I enjoyed the seat time, but I'm ready for Spring.
