Famous last words LOL. It does help not to have hills....looks like you are flat enough if you stood on a tuna can you could see the back of your head :D :D[/quote:02422a5b06]
Don't get me wrong, I've been stuck a time or two. Underneath those huge snowbanks there is ditch on each side of the driveway. Slide into that and it can be a challenge getting back on the road. But most of the time 40+ years of experience has developed some driving skills to avoid those occurrences.
And yes, we do have hills here. Hitting them in high reverse for a little momentum will carry me through. PLus there is a huge difference in traction between cold temperatures and warm. Wet snow is slippery (poor traction) and heavy, requiring more power to move. Super cold snow is dry for good traction and its light , blows like dust.
And front mount blowers are nice but then you need even more traction since all that weight on the front axle takes away from the rear.
