I tried to post some of the other day, It was the worst snow I ever tried to drive in. You couldn't see 10ft in front of you for over an hour. Within 3 hrs we got well over 4 inches of snow in a 5 mile radius, love those snow bands. It was so bad I pulled into one of my lots and took a 45 minute power nap and when I woke upit was still snowing like hell, but now you could see 20ft in front of you.

This is interesting.

The picture doesn't show. But if you quote that post the image tags show up in the reply to thread window. Not sure whats going on. I thought it was fairly simple image tags around an adresswhere the picture is.

Not sure what to make of it.

So here's a link to picture.

4 inches in 3 hours isn't that bad. Try 6 inches in an hour during that big storm the Dec of 2004. My city got 36 inches total that storm, we were the headline for the national news stations. It was the first storm I had every plowed what a way to start.

I remember that storm as I too was in that band that got 36+ inches. Here are some pics from it.

No Ron is still there as the Head of the Grounds Dept. I worked for Dave L back in the winter of 1983 as a sub plowing a few houses and roads in Essex. I then signed on to work for him landscaping. Let's just say that I didn't make it to the end of the summer.

Dave comes across as the nicest guy in the world, but oh boy watch out, that just means he wants something out of or from you.....Since I stopped working for him I've heard so many horror stories from people that worked for him....Funny ,when you ask Dave it is/was never his fault....I did some titleV septic work for/with him also, same deal......I figure sooner or later he would get his....Live and Learn.....
As far as Ron goes he was always complimenting me on the job that I was doing.I did all the upper lots and the road down the hill with the one ton(3 seasons).Not sure where Dave would disappear to but he would come around every four hours or so...
How is it working down the street?They have some nice equipment of their own.

Hi,
Do you do anything with the Bio-Diesel in your equipment?
You must still see my old Oshkosh around on your end of 128...Still out of Pine St(Orange now).
I am down in M'head now for a couple days ,miss the North Shore at times then I hit the traffic and I want to head north...

I haven't seen your ole Oshkosh lately but I will look the next time I head past the pit.

I purchase commercial grade bulk Bio-Diesel from Burke Oil and run it in all the Diesel equipment. I have been purchasing Bio Diesel going on 3 years and not any problems. I use B-20 spring, fall and summer and I run B-5 during the winter.

We do have a gentleman on campus who built his own Bio Diesel processor. He gathers the used fryolator oil from our Food Sevice Dept. and makes Bio Diesel to run the college's VW Rabbit and his own Dodge Pickup truck.

I think the Oshkosh is up in Rockport getting ready for winter.lol He waits till the first storm to move it down typically.Al is probably still busy blasting with the late fall that we have had.
I was wondering if you had anything to do with the guy on campus...We need more bio and less fossil...

I do not other than when the VW Rabbit needs work, I will somtimes get involved in the fix since I run the garage. Other than that it is pretty much a one man operation. He took it on as his project back a few years ago and it kinda took off. He goes around to local public schools with the VW and teaches a class on Bio Diesel.

Jeff, what's up with that one pic of the loader and a straight blade. I hear they're totally impractical. ;) :D

Pretty sure I don't want to see the amount of snow that those pics of Boston are showing, looks like they could make a grown man cry. :crying:
