Here in NH we are getting powdery snow but it is supposed to turn into ice pellets later tonight.
Nothing for a snowblower. The leaf blower would work better.
"If you have more miles on your snow blower than your car, you live in New England." "If you can drive 75 mph through 2 feet of snow during a raging blizzard without flinching, you live in New England."
Don't blow into the wind, and don't eat yellow snow. WOOF!

I guess it is catching. Raining here too now with 70 km/h wind. They had the trans Canada Hwy closed down from Regina to Brandon yesterday - hundreds of semis pile up everywhere. Winter sure come early this year - and with a vengeance.
A few years back I took a trip from Guelph Ont. to Surrey B.C. in a 1988 Ford F-150 pickup loaded to the nuts pulling a U-Haul also heavily loaded. It was mid February. My nephew was moving lock, stock and barrel to start his career as an engineer out on the west coast. Saw god twice on that trip. Once along the north shore of Lake Superior between Wawa and White River, the other time was in the middle of Saskatchewan. We came into the province on the heels of a freezing rain storm that turned the highway to a skating rink. South wind was blowing hard. Real hard. We had an 18' canoe on a rack on the pickup and had it tied down tighter than the hubs of hell. Nonetheless, it was still skewing diagonally across the lenght of the truck. Blasts of wind would hit us so hard we could feel the rig being blown toward the shoulder. It was a real nail biter. Vehicles in the ditch all over the place including big rigs. What I found commical was that there was only one hill with a curve at the top and bottom near the western border of Saskatchewan. There were at least six to eight vehicles off the road at each curve and the weather there wasn't nearly as bad as what we had just driven through. When we hit the Alberta border, it was like driving into a different country. Sunny, calm and hardly any snow. We had run the Saskatchewan gauntlet!!
