We're forecasted to get 1 - 2 feet in the Glacier Park region of NW MT into Thursday morning. I'm working from home so I don't have to drive among dimwits out there.

Is that where you are located then? We are in the Trout Creek/Noxon area.

Only 2", but it is sleeting and the top is starting to form ice.
So time to move it out,

I noticed you have the plow from mysnowsport.com. I didn't know they made them for the loader on a compact utility tractor. What is your impression of this plow?

They don't make them for the tractor, I adapted my old one from the truck. Easy enough as it's a hitch mount.
Works fine, had to take the wings off as they were building up snow and raising the front end.
Was only 2" of icy topped snow, but did 700' of road and my driveway in 30 min.
I use it straight to get up the driveway and then turn it to do high side out and low side back.
In 1-2' of snow it's a bit much to push after a dozen feet so I turn in to the sides to push some snow off.
So overall happy, but it's wide.
