    Default West Virginia snow,

    Well I just came in from getting my butt whipped here in Jefferson County, West Virginia. My JD 4115 with 6 1/2 ft Curtis power angle front blade took all it could handle. The snow is very heavy and coming down hard. I looked like a snowman so I decided to take a break and wait until morning. This storm could do a lot of damage. Thanks for listening.

    We already have 12",that's the most we were supposed to get. Still snowing to beat the band. With another five or six hours to go,if the intensity stays the same as it's been for the last five hours,we may end up with close to 20" We'll see how well my 2520 performs.

    I live near Charleston and the storm for us till now has been rain. I measures it a while ago and it was over 2 inches in the rain gauge. Started snowing at about 9PM and they are calling for a storm total for us of between 4-8 inches. I will believe it when I see it. I don't mind missing all of this heavy snow cause I would have to go to work till who knows when. Be safe guys out on the machines tomorrow its easy to get hurt but this is where our toys I mean tools shine the brightest. Have fun.

    I live a couple of miles from the Preston county line at the top of snake hill road. Just came in at 11:30 pm from plowing the second time today. Measured 21" on the table on the back deck. Some may be blowing off roof, not much though. I have 16" muck boots and it is well up over the tops in my yard. Power has gone out a couple times briefly.

    I will be digging out from this for days. Have the chains on my Ranger and moving snow banks back with the tractor. So far so good. -Keith

    Well, the snowmobilers around here are hoping for more snow, but thankfully this storm is scheduled to swing east and out to sea before it gets as far north as NS!

    It's still coming down hard in central VA. I went ahead and took the FEL off my 790 and put the snow blade on. Actually, I really like the FEL for clearing snow because I can make big piles with it, but the snow plow is a lot faster. Like etcallhome, I'll probably end up plowing the neighborhood. Also, for some reason the front blade doesn't leave as "slick" a surface as the FEL edge.

    Fortunately, I think we have enough snow that I feel good about firing up the Cat D4. At 20,000lbs and packing a 10' wide blade, it'll move some snow....
