Mine is a 5.5hp which is fine for most of the winter. A neighbor down 3 houses has a tractor with blower attached and nice chains on the tires. He saved me at least 2 agonizing hours with my "toy" last weekend when we got the mixing mess. He went up on the street and probably did a dozen driveways. Could not thank him enough.
As a pay-it-forward thing I handle my up hill neighbor who happens to be a single old lady with an even smaller snowblower.

When this one dies, I will probably get a "real" one and save my back. Or get a camera upgrade instead :-)

That's some snow! I like your best friend - every year we'll think about getting one but while we'll get the occasional big dump, we don't usually have enough snow at once to justify getting one. And there's nothing like watching kids sledding and playing in the snow, lots of fun. It's so wonderful when it is so white and pretty looking. Then it all starts melting and really making a mess. Good luck then.

Downhill:-)

I expect some flooding this year. In the area I live though the developers did a decent job in terrain modeling. In the first couple of years some folks downhill got a bit of water in the basements but they rectified that in meantime. It also helps to have reliable sump pumps:-)
