Not working in this one...retired now. Had my fill of working in blizzard conditions with 25 years in the PSP working Erie County in Pa. By far the worst was the blizzard of '79. There was one year we had an ice storm of epic proportions as well. Trees down everywhere from the weight of the ice on the branches, up to 3"+. If you parked on even the slightest grade, the cruiser would just start sliding. It was a total mess.

I remember the blizzard of 78 was in high school and had an international Scout.

I was making 20 a tow pulling people Out of snow drifts because we were out of school about a week... What's blast.


I would not have wanted to work that mess. 27 to 38 inches

We didn't get hit too bad where I'm at. I do think when the rain and warmer weather comes tomorrow we'll be seeing flooding.

Which one are you referring to? We have had snow every or every other day lately so you will have to be more specific. LOL

In all seriousness, I am glad we didnt get it all in one shot like you guys on the east coast! Stay safe and make sure your snowblower has enough gas and oil!
