The long-range forecast (next 3 weeks) shows the possibility of snow here in Western Washington, beginning 1/9 and lingering through about the 29th. My F-350 has the snowplow installed on the front and is ready to roll if we get a heavy dose. If it is just 2-3 inches, I don't bother to plow (though my neighbors might like me too). We live at the end of a long lane (1/2 mile) and when we get snow AND a Nor-easter blowing out of Canada, it drifts up in a couple of sections to 3-4 feet deep. Then, I have to plow!
