Winters, here in my Thumb area at least, sure aren’t like they used to be. Last winter, I only had to snowplow my driveway once, and even then, it really didn’t need it. I had hated seeing my snow blade-equipped ATV sitting idle, and I do enjoy plowing snow with it.
Of course, it was during the middle of the recent November deer season that weather reports had me mounting the snow blade on the ATV earlier than normal and fall suddenly turned into winter, at least for a few weeks or so. By mid-December, weather at times became even a bit balmy, and the snow melted and stayed gone, even for most of January.
