    Anyone else in the PNW get a bunch of snow?

    Wednesday I got word that a snow storm was coming in (1-5" possible). Living in Oregon the weather here is very unpredictable which means the weather man isn't always right. Low and behold the snow came on Thursday, and it just stopped snowing today. In total we saw around 8" in the valley (well atleast where I was at) and I saw 16" at home. What does all of this mean? Seat time!

    Plowed my driveway for the 3rd time today with the 317 which powered through the fresh powder wonderfully. The only issue I had was once the steep part of the driveway was plowed I could barely make it back up the hill, I guess tire chains are on the list for the 317, just glad it made it back to the barn. Today it chiseled through 3-4" of snow packed roadway when I plowed out about a half mile of gravel road so the neighbors could get to work tomorrow. Very happy with the 317, it performed well as usual. Even spent a few hours on a Bobcat plowing out my grandpa's driveway. I was probably the most prepared for snow when the storm hit, the Deere had a full tank of fuel, block heater was plugged in, and my pickup of course had plenty of clearance. Spent all of Friday slowly cruising around in my truck and pulling people out of the ditches. This has been one of the best snowed in weekend ever. Anyone else around here get a bunch of snow?

    Thanks for the photos , looked like several wasn't prepared. Yesterday , they called for us 1-3" ended up with 6 " , in the higher elev 8-12". Love it when the weather dept can throw there darts, get it wrong and still get normal pay.

    Last Monday was calling for 3-5" received close to a foot..

    At least you had some fun seat time.
