    How to cope with snow on the driveway, all 1000 feet of it.
    Kubota tractor with a 56" snowblower on the front and a 60" scraper blade on the three point hitch on the back.
    When it snows, sit tight. it'll stop at some point. Meanwhile...model building time!

    Yes the falls look great in the winter.

    When we visited our late cousin's we went to the falls, so have done the Maid of the mists - behind the falls, the cable car over the whirlpool and the helicopter over the falls.

    Just glad that we were able to do this.

    That's all right, Mr Ryan. My Morse is so rusty, I could be sending him dimensions on Playmate of the Month.

    Niagara Falls is spectacular in the winter as the ice builds from fall until spring melt.The sad part is with the lock down and pandemic US visitation is not permitted they can not see their side of the falls .The only full view is from the Canadian side.

    Hi 'Prof' πŸ˜‰
    To say I 'know' Buffalo would be a huge exaggeration.
    I was there for one day a long long time ago.
    Thanks to the snowstorm I didn't see much of the town, didn't see the falls either😭
    Following day had to go to Rochester to visit the then Harris Corporation, Communications Div.
    Then down to Philly and 'home' to Long Island.
    Was a very interesting few daysπŸ˜‰
    Imposing vid of the falls πŸ‘

    Well, RN, since you know the Buffalo area, I grew up on Grand Island, across the Niagara River, and a little northwest. I lived there from 1944 to 1967, then went off to San Diego to join the crew of the USS Canberra, CAG-2.

    Even Niagara Falls is affected by the current storm! https://www.facebook.com/susan.brosseau.7/videos/38628161304...

    Very glad you made it PeejayπŸ‘
    You realise though that you just earned yourself a new nickname?
    Henceforth you are 'The Prof'😁
    Re Buffalo Up-state New York:-
    I was there in November '86 (that's 1986 you 'orrible lot!!).
    We drove up from Garden City, Long Island in glorious sunshine.
    Arrived early evening, checked into a hotel and went for a steak in the restaurant.
    After the meal we wanted to get some air and have a look around.
    Walked out the door and were confronted with blinding snow, couldn't see across the car park, it was already 6 - 9" deep and rising as we watched. So back in to a warm bar and a few beers!
    Next morning dawned bright and sunny again,
    "and the snow lay round about, deep and crisp and even" πŸ™„
    Stay safe - and warm.
    Cheers, Doug 😎

    When I was an Assistant Professor for Naval Science (Navy ROTC Unit) at Iowa State University), we were in the office one sunny May morning, when it clouded over and began to snow - hard. By early afternoon, a neighbor Lieutenant (whose wife had the car) and I decided we’d better go home.

    By that time, the streets had snowed over, and we were going very slowly on the main road toward home. We were doing OK, until we were nearly by a small food mart. Rather than try to park and drive in, two cars in front of us just stopped, and the drivers got out and walked into the store.

    When they got back in, they couldn’t get going again. We were about two to two and a half miles from home, so we decided to walk and started walking diagonally across a field that was also bordered by the street we lived on. However, the snow kept getting deeper and our legs were getting very tired. Fortunately, two men on snowmobiles were coming toward us, and they picked us up and took us home. They said they had gone out to find and rescue people like us. I don’t know if we would have made it home without our β€œrescuers” but I have never since just started walking in snow extending up to my knees. That was the worst blizzard I have ever been in, even though I grew up near Buffalo, New York.

    ToraDog had mentioned that he was in a winter storm. Looks like US and Canada are in the same system .Just got finished moving a foot of snow off the driveway.
    The good part about the snow today is I don't have to go anywhere.
    A good number of years ago a storm hit during work hours.After cleaning off the car I had a 7 hour journey to get home. Some did not get home that night as cars trucks and buses were stranded all over.Hamilton and neighboring cities and towns closed down. When the storm ended news media showed vehicle 's stranded in banks of snow .Clean up took almost a week.
    I think snow is wonderful to look at just not on my driveway.
    For thought's digging out be careful stay safe .
