Here are a couple of pics. These where at day break. Non of my other 100's of pics really turned out. So far, the first storm, we got about an inch of ice and a couple of snow. It is a slick bi$ch out there!

More pics if you have them and if you have time. Be careful out there. CNN has been showing some video from all the ice. It looks like it is a bear out there....

It looks that way, but it could just be the snow and salt and weather taking its toll. Only some pictures of it all cleaned up would make it obvious.

Awesome setup, BTW!

It would be charcoal gray metallic. The magnetic signs are black background, they didn't quite match but when the truck is clean they look VERY close.

It blows. You start the peal the ice then BAM the edge trips and you have to try and start the process all over. ICE SUCKS!

The ice we usually get you cant even peel it off with the wheel loaders, all you can do is push the snow and all you do is spin while trying to do that. We usually have to go out and sand/salt and try to sofen it up after we get the snow off the top of it and then the next day go in a scrape it clean.

Good pictures PLM, at least you got something-plowable. (may all your lots be level like ours, when it's ice underneath!)

350K less homes&biz's without power around here than the 12.1.06, to about 116K total yesterday (mostly restored now) and the elec-power is back on around here after 18 hours off, from yesterday's freezing-rain wave (that is presently melting off the trees in the 37-degree heat). With no higher than 28 on King Holiday Monday, tonight's belting of ice will be another ice management event tomorrow, since forecast for any snow was cancelled and updated to ice-only around here.

Just in for the bathroom and a snack. We had about an hours worth of heavy "rain". That's when all of our power started to go out. It's a horrid mess. My father-in-law is the CFO of a local hospital and he called to tell us we are in a "state of emergency". It took this long to decide this?!?!?!? There is no salt for sale anywhere. No sand. We got lucky and scrounged up less than two pallets of water softener salt between everywhere that sells it.
