My truck after I was done.The whole time I never thought of my truck or plow I didn't want to jix it.:nod:
This was a mess I hate this kind of snow it was heavy and wet. As soon as you had part of the lot done people would pull into it and walk to there house. Thats why I do the entrance last.These picture don't ever come close. The first night it was snowing I was snapping phone lines with the plow that's how low they were.

WOW that is crazy I don't think we have seen show like that in 10 years.So how did the truck hold up ? Looks like it did a great job? I bet you are glad that is done.

The plow was going in for service on the 23th and new tires next month. On Sat. you couldn't find any gas I drained my mowers and drove about 20miles round trip for gas and had to wait in line for 45 miniutes. My contracts don't even start till Nov 1st.:eek:

Sorry,
Internet keeps going up and down. All the power crews are using the local mall as staging areas. They said everybody should have power by Sun. I guess no mowing this week.:crying: I'm going to help out a tree guy since I have nothing to do. Besides the wife and kids are killing me! All my contracts are back for plowing.payup
I'll try and get some more pixs all the snow is almost gone.

The snows gone ,just a mess now. I'm helping out a tree guy I send work to.I don't see any more mowing this year. Most of the tree companies are charging for the estimates paid in advance then will credit their account.I'll try and get some pictures.

Just before this happened it was raining for 2 weeks you couldn't even get on the lawns to cut them. What trees are left they still have leaves so there's still a month of leaf work after this.

Thanks,
Everything is good now. I've been through a few big storms. We had one in 95 that dropped 40inches of the wet stuff .In 2001 we had 7 feet (yes feet) in 5 days. The thing is when your in it all day you don't realize how bad it is. Most people are stuck in the house and are scared of what's happing. I like it and it's fun. But I rather we only get 3-4 ins at a time, go out, finish and go home and back to bed.:nod:

Had to steal this pic from wivb.com ....Weight of snow lifted nose of jet off ground during this storm!

larger scale airplane , have the center of Lift towards the rear of the plane, the center of gravity on the aircraft is forward of the center of lift, however is towards the rear of the plane as well. This is designed so that when the passengers fill in the plane, the center of gravity moves forward. the Tail of the aircraft is an upside down wing that pushes down on the rear of the aircraft, and balances out the weight on the front of the plane. If the center of gravity was ever to go rearward of the center of lift , the plane would basicly have no control , and could not recover from a stall or nose high attitude. for anyone that wonders why your baggage is weighed at the airport, the pilot needs to know exactly how much weigh is in the aircraft, and exactly how it is placed in the aircraft to calculate were the center of gravity is - Just a little knowelege for you all

but thats a funny pic

That reminds me of another story to the Great October Storm of 2006!

About a week after and all the cleanup was going on the State DOT was picking up all the trees people left at the roadside and they were using loaders and just grabbing the branches and whole parts of peoples lawn. Being the smart and generous guy I am I went and picked up coffee and donuts from Tim Hortons for the workers and when they got to my house instead of using the loader to grab everything the hand pulled all the branches into the street. All the neighbors wondered how I had no damage to the lawn!

It's October in Buffalo... perfect time to finally add a couple of my pics from that storm here, haha. The first one is of the lines for gas. Since almost the entire area was without power (except my house for some reason, didn't lose it at all), finding a working gas station was a rarity over the first day or two. The others are just shots from around the area.

No wind. It was as calm as can be. That's what made it worst it was so quite all you kept hearing were the branches breaking and falling on houses and the ground.

No, wasn't really an ice storm. We got around 2' of heavy wet snow while all the trees still had all their leaves.
