'A bit of snow......total storm 8-12".'

To me that's more than a bit of snow, but I do agree that is bitterly cold.  Ouch.

Dayum cold! -22F is like -30C, that's getting down there. We got down to -26C/-15F this morning, a pretty severe shock to the system this early in the season.

We're only expecting 4-6" of snow here in Ottawa.

I'll post a picture of the snowblower frozen in the snow bank. Wind chill possibly close to -30 F

No issues here! I mixed a 5.0 and 7.5 battery that i had and went to work. Got about 6 inches of heavy snow before it started to rain. It powered through everything! Did a 10 car driveway with uneven pavement. Front walk way side walk way and front side walk. Only bogged once....cause it hit a pile of leaves i forgot to clean up lol. Overall it did what i hoped and as long as she turns on tomorrow i think I'm keeping her for the season.

So I guess that means we can't dual-purpose it for fall yard cleanup? :-)
