Snowfall in the northern panhandle
Just closed on some land in the northern panhandle. I am considering what to buy for my lawn and snow removal. I am leaning towards a JD lawn tractor with a snow blade. Is there enough snow to warrant this? If it snows a lot but melts the next couple of days I wouldn't bother plowing it.
If a snow blade is useful it adds to the value of my over all purchase. If not then maybe I go with something other than $2,000 JD. However if there is that much snow a separate self propelled mower and snowblower would make me lean into getting the lawn tractor as the price wouldn't be a whole lot different.
At first I thought of nor'easters blowing in leaving substantial amounts of snow. Then I looked at some site about climate data and it shows all months with no more than around 3 inches of precipitation. Depending on how it is measured 3 inches of water is a lot more as snow. I wasn't clear how it was measured.
So my question is would a small tractor with a blade be over kill?
