On the plus side, I don't need to spend money on a Yeti.

Full disclosure...I admit I used both a mech and fixed blade. Although they both have their place, I gotta admit I much prefer the mech! Hell, it didn't even bend or lose a blade. Ha!

2 days ago I shot outside and mowed the lawn. Today there's 10" on the grass, and the drift against my fence is 2 1/2'. Gotta love springtime in the Rockies...NOT!

Frostbite on your sunburn!

BTW. I think your mechanical needs a greater cutting swath and current "draw weight" is too low. LOL!

Those who haven't lived there have no idea how TRUE this is!!!

The way things are going, you may be right! August is the only month I haven't seen snow in Cheyenne. We've even had snow on the 4th of July!

Brian, believe it or not, that Toro's 14yrs old. Today it blew through that crap with zero problems, while my neighbor's big two-stage kept clogging up. Mine was like throwing an axe through it . lol!

We just got a little down south of you near the border. About 40" on the flat now.

It's a mess in Laramie. I couldn't get home last night ... got to within a couple hundred yards of my house, and battled 52 mph (sustained -- I have a wind meter on the house) winds to get there. Spent 2 hours on the tractor moving snow -- and it moved back just as fast.

It's amazing to me how that wind moves heavy, wet snow.

But ... this is why we have a lot of space to ourselves, right, Wyo?

Hopefully, there will be road or two open tomorrow.

Rob, You didn't come over with the snow blower.

Lou, I went up Rist Canyon Monday for work. I guess it was good planning on my part. Had to go up Whale canyon rd.

Gotta love spring time in the Rockies.

Back in my college days in Laramie, there was more than one time when we left Snort's at closing time and had to use the ice scraper to clear the windshield.....IN JULY!!!

Or antelope! And the wind in that pic is SO mild that the chopper is actually able to be airborne.

Sometimes I saw tumbleweeds that went by SOOOO fast they were on fire!

I was driving thru western WY a while back towing a boat enroute to Oregon. It was very windy that day. I was somewhere cruising on the interstate....I looked in the review mirror and noticed the front of the boat lifting off the trailer....yikes!! The wind in combo with the truck speed created enough lift to get the front of the boat (17') airborne. Thank God for the safety chain. Luckily I had a cargo strap and and tied the front of the boat down until I got thru Wyoming. That was my Wyoming wind experience.

Were you having to drive with the front wheels turned into the wind at a 45 degree angle just to keep going straight? If not then that was a reasonably calm day.

I have no experience judging polar bears. Am I wrong? To me, that appears to be a good sized bear.
