    This is the after math of the blizzard Halifax received on February 13/14 2017. They were calling for 70 cms (27"). Some areas had close to that, some much more with the drifts. My driveway was 53 cms (21") without the drifts.

    This is my second year with my Toro 826 OXE. Even though for the most part they were not bad winters, we did get hit hard for a few weeks each year. During this storm and the one after it, I did 15 driveways over 3 days.

    Yikes. Nasty weather. It has been a long, cold, and wet winter in the PNW too. So looking forward to some Spring and Summer.

    The crazy thing is it started pretty mild. Then after that messy couple of weeks or so it warmed up and looked like Spring was going to come early. Then we hit Spring and the snow started again. We had rain and it has been above freezing so the snow is going away. Should be pretty warm by Wednesday so that will be good.

    Has it started warming up there?

    It has definitely warmed up, but still a lot of moisture. Even by the standards of the Pacific Northwest, which is saying something.

    We had some warm days but has been mostly cold. We had a nice day last week and I took advantage of it and gave my Jeep a much needed wash. Still need to wash it again and do the interior. I can't wait for it to warm up.

    I hear you; our vehicles need a wash big time.

    Mine was driving me nuts. Hate to see it dirty like that. My wife made it home before I finished so I washed her car as well.

    If the weather doesn't warm up soon I'm you g to go crazy though. Too cold for this time of year. Seems like the warm weather of spring comes later every year.
