Thanks. One person that understands Yes it was a full 10" measured in three different spots on the drive. Thank goodness that's blacktop.

An additional problem is, it won't even blow over about 8' and that was early this morning when it was colder out. Our landing area is huge and has two garages and 200' of driveway and this is the first snow of the season.

My snow blower was bogging down clearing out my drive last night. Normally I just put the blade on the front of my truck but I saw how heavy that stuff was and knew better. Idda been fish tailing all over the place.

I understand wet snow. I'm older than snow, and have seen it all. You just need some warmer weather. Wet snow melts fast.

Where do you live?

On the Tundra according to some. NELP MI.

Will drop to 20 tonight, 30 is tomorrow's high. Teens following for night time lows, highs in the 20's. Oh we're used to snow, it dumps on us off Lake Huron. This however is different.

I have one of the last true John Deere snowblowers, a 10hp that wouldn't hardly blow this stuff 8'. It took forever just to get it a single trip the length of the drive. Normally I get the Polaris 800 with the 60" blade and just push it off. It wouldn't even touch it. We had to blow most of it until I got a larger area open, thenl I could get 4 or 5" on the edge of the blade, move it and then blow it into the woods. I have 5' piles I can't push back now and this is the first snow of the year.

Would you like a little cheese with that wine.
10 inches of slushy snow sure beats water up to your rafters like some are dealing with.

Maybe its Karma for shooting quarter sized groups at 400yds. The deer god's don't want you in the woods or on the range.
