Meh, bring it on! I could stand a few days out of the tractor trailer and a few days in the plow truck, it would be a welcomed change in pace for me.

Here we will probably get wind gusts up to 60MPH, snow, rain, snow, 4-10 in combo rain, sleet, ice, snow and slush. Not a big deal, even if the power goes out for a while. Probably will make some work for me, downed trees and stuff, hopefully not at my own place, haha.

No need for spackle buckets here. I only have 1 working generator at the moment which is a 4.0 BFA. My 6.5NH's fuel pump took a sh!t and plugged up of the carburetor with crap from the pump. I rebuilt the carburetor, but did not test it out. I would have to gravity feed the carburetor or steal the fuel pump off of the 4.0 BFA. I could run propane or natural gas with both the 4.0 BFA and 6.5NH, but I am out of propane. To run natural gas, I would need to drag the genny from the garage to the house (120 feet) which could be tough in 2 feet of snow if the power goes out during the worst of the storm.

I am ready for the big snow storm. What else do I need for the 24 inches of snow they predict?

I'm "suffering" from the same affliction as yellowlister. Would be okay if it would last, but this area is famous for it's two week springs and falls.
At least I can get a few things done outside.
