First Snow Tractor of The Year

Look what just turned up!
Today saw the first snow tractor of the season – quite a change from last year when we were still commuting in trucks through December.
The conditions today have certainly been wintry with temperatures around 10 degrees Fahrenheit and winds fluctuating between 60 and 90 mph. The winds are expected to rise again tonight and, if our luck holds, we may see the first 100 mph gust of the season.
The snow that fell recently has been blowing around creating near white out conditions at times and building large snow drifts all over the place. As anyone who has spent time up here knows snow drifts mean shoveling and sure enough this morning saw us outside moving snow away from doors and equipment – ah winter!
