    Noah's Blower

    So, there was Noah's Ark for the big bad floods back a few years, but the termite couple they let on board did away with that. Today, the frantic newscasters here in the northeast US are making it sound like we need a visit from Noah's Blower.

    Long story short, we'll be closed/unable to ship for the next day or two due to an unusually heavy dusting of snow passing through the area. We're dead snack in the middle of this map and expecting a couple of feet in a short period of time. Yay.

    While I know this is not what a business man wants, use the time to enjoy your family and pushing some snow around at home.

    Yay is right! A perfect time for you to work on those new "snow removal enhancement devices" in the development pipe!!! Blower impeller flaps, Clear plastic 54" plow tops with indestructable LED lights right behind the plastic, ballast box mounted warming oven/microwave (There's really no place to properly cook a can of hash on a 1026 exhaust manifold!)...

    Have a great time and enjoy the time "off", my new rubber edge can wait.

    Looks like it's time for a new Artillian snow removal video.

    Sounds like a good idea, but we'll see. It's pretty nasty with 40mph winds blowing sideways.

    In these kids of storms, I prefer to stay on top of it in chunks. It's more grueling to be out there in the soup every few hours but it's much easier to move the snow in 8-10" layers than one big dose at the end. So, I got up and dragged my butt our there at 6am in the dark for the first pass today.

    I'm SO glad to be using the plow instead of the blower these days. Using a blower in this blizzard would be absolutely pointless. As it was, at some points, I was plowing by "feel" because the snow blowing directly in my face made it impossible to see anything past the steering wheel, even with full floodlights ablaze.

    I'm also so very glad to have the rubber extension wings on the plow because the light fluffy snow drifts were so deep I couldn't even see the blade up against walls and trees. With the flexible wings, I didn't worry about rubbing up against things, just let the wings tell me where I was. Smooth as silk!

    So here's the latest map. Now the center of the storm is parked right on top of us. Zoinks!

    In a storm like you are experiencing staying on top of it like you are is wise - although being out in the wind and drifting snow ain't no fun!

    I'm in the other camp now being I don't have to go anywhere - I wait until it's done which is sometimes a few days with snow spitting off the lake. Doesn't matter as I could stay hunkered down here for weeks if need be.

    Dang.
    Yeah it seems that it moved quickly and formed farther north offshore from us and is now hammering you folks.
    We have about 5" is all so far and dont think we might see more than another inch or so.

    Ok ok, you caught me. The other reason is so our dogs won't disappear into the abyss when they go out
