    Winter storm Draco

    Anybody have any issues with the "Big storm"? We got 6" of snow and some real good wind. The power must have blinked because the DirecTv recievers were on this morning, but the clocks didn't reset on the stove and microwave. I got to move snow with the 1026 and H120. That was an ordeal. It went pretty well, but I will say this spring I'm going to have some divites to replace. Down pressure is great, but not on soft lawn.... They had us in a Blizzard warning so I assumed the worst. It was just another winter storm. We had a couple cracks of lightning and thunder, but that was about it. Oh well. Anyone else have any stories?

    We got 8 or 10 inches here. The wind is starting to wind up now. I'm definitely stuck at home for awhile. I have my x748 and 47 inch blower ready to spring into action when the wind dies down.

    North central Missouri:

    About an inch of 3/8-1/2" hail last night around nine pm, 2/3" or so of rain. Then after 4 AM, we've had 2-3" of snow, wet at first, now it's dryer & blowing in the high winds. Other than scooping to the shop (50'), I won't mess with it until afternoon. Should be done by then. ~~ Lowell

    10" here in Des Moines. Power went out at about 4AM and came back on about 10AM.

    Got the drive cleared with the 2305/blower and it was a challenge. REALLY heavy snow.

    We also have a lot of trees hanging from wet snow. Not sure what is broke or just bending at this point.

    I will be surprised if we don't lose power again as its really windy.

    Mid American said 40,000 customers were without power this morning.

    So far I have less than 4" of snow in my yard, not a big deal yet. Just got back from town, roads are in good shape, I didnt even put the chev in 4-wheel drive.

    Just looked at snow totals. Looks like we got 13.1 Hard to tell when you have 30 mph winds moving it around !

    So add three to my previous post.

    There have been plenty without power around here. Our office just went off the Generator. I know lots of people on Facebook are without power still. It will be nice to have the moisture. I think the wind saved some of our trees. The snow couldn't pile up like if it were calm. We would have had limbs down all over if that were the case. This snow was WET. All of our trees have a nice frosted look to them and the backyard is pretty scenic.
