I finished clearing the driveway about an hour ago.

it was really coming down earlier - with the wind blowing so hard most of the snow had already blown away

there were some drifts around though, like this little one behind the cars:

using the little plow on the lawn tractor, it takes a while to build up such a large pile of snow:

but the driveway is now clear

even the parking day at the top of the driveway is clear

I feel bad for the rover having to sit outside in this, but with the top box on, it wont fit in the garage.

will likely have to do this again by morning, but at least there is that much less that will need to be cleared.

Yeah, that's why  busted outt he snow blower when I got home
with how heavy this stuff is it's better to clear it often instead of letting it compound. SInce it is warm now it is melting, but tonight it will freeze

My report from Steamboat Springs, digging out the snow mobiles from under 3 feet of fresh powder, but still blizzard like conditions as we set out and enjoyed the day, the other pics are from the day after around Fish Creek Falls, etc.  I had an EPIC trip to the mountains. :)
