I had heard we got 10" and the north shore about the same. So much down fall this year so it is going to be a bugger to get things cleared. It was bad last year and I think this year will be as bad or worse. :yuck:

Read a post on another site guy tried to ride. More time cutting dead fall than riding.
Last year I went up to Finland for first snowfall. Cut so much wood. And drove through and over branches, I almost regreted it NOT?:face-icon-small-hap

We did our annual pre Christmas ride last year and cut trees for an hour plus and made it 100 yds in the trail. That was a workout. Thank God for Dewalt and Makita cordless sawzalls! But i would do it all over again amd probably will in a few weeks!

Try one of these. Jonsered CS2255 20" Chain Saw, 55.5CC
We officially got 10.8". 90% chance for Wednesday. I think 2"-4". But the last one they predicted a trace to 1" but ended up with close to 11", oh well!. Deer opener Saturday morning.

That's awesome! We only got enough to make the ground white for a day, gone now. Hope it keeps up and stays below freezing this year.

Growing up as a kid my mom would say we always get a January thaw. I would have to say she was right. I have always wanted this kind of weather early but this one year is an exception. My kid and I are building a new house for him and after all the stupid insane constant rain we have had, put us so far behind. At least we are weather proof, but no heat!! :face-icon-small-sad

So we have you to thank for this weather then!! But that would just about figure if you were trying to get a house built.

And here I was thinking it was like this because nobody I know bought a new sled or snowblower this year. LOL
