The Valentines Storm 2007 snow total in our neck of the woods was 44". As luck would have it, I was out of town on business! So I spent Valentine's Day on a cell phone with my wife in my truck, talking her step-by-step through her first plow job! It was coming down about 3-5 inches an hour. She did a great job keeping up with the storm for the first two plows at my business, but the rig eventually got stuck in our driveway, and I arrived home Thursday morning to a snow field 75 yards long and 30" deep between me and my rig. I hand shoveled for an hour just enough to get my baby out. Needless to say, the pushing has been tough up here and I know of a couple of guys who blew their trannies and another who broke an axle and another who now needs new CV joints!

Yeah, we got hit pretty bad too. Couple of trucks got stuck, but no major breakdowns. We got a bit less than you guys but still a lot. After a while, the trucks couldn't do much so we had to use the snowblower just to make a path and then the trucks could continue. It sure was fun thoughpayup

Looks like a lot of sag on that front end for a Ford.

Yeah, its on an incline. My parking lot slopes a little to the back. You just can't tell because the picture is washed out. I asked a few pros about supporting the front end before I bought the plow and the said the 250 SD wouldn't need it. So far, seems like they're right.

So I ended up blowing a brake line this week and my mechanic fixed her up real fast, good thing since we got 12 more inches today! More is on the way too! it's been a lot of work to move the snow, but the snowboarding is awesome!
