It's just teasing here in Lancaster County:

But I am ready.  This is one case where I am glad for the work at home option for both my wife and myself.  Friday she got done with her travel role to supervise two Covid vaccination sites.  But I need to have my Father to his appointment Tuesday am. 

Have Silverado will travel:

Greg, 

Woke up this morning to about a foot; been out shoveling a bit until it started raining again.

A most unusual storm.  Woke up yesterday morning to about 4" of snow.  Then an off again, on again mixture of sleet and light rain until late afternoon.  Then last evening and overnight had 8-10" of snow.  There is a very crusty layer an inch or two above grade.  

Allentown, about 50 miles north was the sweet spot, they got 2 feet or so of all snow.

Talked the wife into recording some videos. Same camera as the one used above for the still pic.  Have no idea why the quality is so crappy.  But you get the idea of the 20HP Command doing some work:

Snowed all day yesterday and into the night. Wet heavy snow, by the time I got to it this AM it had settled to 8 or 10 inches. Driveway isn't frozen real well so it seemed I was blowing as many rocks as snow. The old Briggs has valve problems but it still managed to chew through it.
