I have no zoodad hole. Didn't do that for this very reason. And it still happened.

There was even more caked on to it when I removed it. Even the small hose at the top was plugged of snow.

Powdery snow, and wind makes it fly every where, even when only a few inches deep. Just really surprizing to see the check filter warning.

On a side note. Twas -20 this morning and I didn't plug it in had a moment.

It's cold and they didn't want to follow the tractor to shelter. So they needed some help moving.

Should I get a replacement filter, or will this one be ok, when it dries?

Should this still happen, or did I encounter the perfect conditions?

It might be but if is dirty at all, I'd replace it.

You probably encountered perfect conditions for this to happen.

Let it dry out then check the filter minder. If it says it's o.k. then chase some more cows and save your money.
