...and after the blizzards the snow beasts arrive.
They come from the east, their snowy exhalations steaming in the cold air...

...and slowly they progress, hissing down the drive...

...closer, closer, closer until their growls deafen your ears and jack-hammer in your bones....

No, it's from our December storm, I think. :D I just checked patti's snow thread first and saw a request for snowblowing pics. We've only gotten little accumulations since...but probably a foot or so all told.

I wish we did, too--ours is kinda dirty and gettin' yellow. We only get about an inch at a time and it just isn't standing up to all the setter feet and setter peein' goin' on out there! :frustrated: :o

Terrific, Hazel, thanks. Is it a very slow job? You must get sick of it. That snow is so lovely and white. Can you send us some by Sunday? It is going to be 38C. :( Swan Hill will be flooded by then, it seems so ridiculous, hot weather and terrible flooding together.

Anyone is welcome to the snow we have here! I have to start the snow dragon here today and it's not a lovely one like Hazel's DH has I'm afraid. It's an old heavy beast that terrifies me to use but I can't shovel for three hours either!

those are great pics, I wish we had nice snow like that, we never really got much this year, no snowbanks to speak of which is very weird for January

Yep! :D Still getting some in now and then, although it's mostly been too cold for sledding. Instead, the dogs and I have been doing laps around the yard to stay warm. *insert :huffing-puffing smiley: here*

Is it a very slow job? You must get sick of it.

Our snow dragon makes pretty quick work of it, and most of what we've gotten since has been so light we didn't need to disturb the dragon for it. I rarely get sick of snow--as long as we get clean layers frequently, it can last for as long as it wants. :thumbs up As you can imagine, though, the snow gets pretty yellow here pretty fast...so frequent snow falls are good.

We have one like that, too...rarely take it out anymore now that we're in the country. We used to use it on the walks and drives at our old house--but the drive was much shorter than the one here. Now, if we get less than a couple inches at a crack, we only shovel the deck and let the rest go (no sidewalks out here to clear).

And it's so nice to see you back on the forum, BMDLuver! :highfive: Been a while!!!

Yes, you may! When can I expect it? :D

breeze and Melinda, we have plenty of banks to climb on! More than usual. So I'm thinking we got some of yours. Thank you for sharing! :p

klm, I've always liked the look of orange and green together, too! :thumbs up

EEEWWW, too much information. :D :D You are spoiling this vision I had of pristine purity. :laughing: Glad the snow dragon works fast. :thumbs up
