I don't understand the confusion for the question I asked.

Snow that landed here a few weeks back is now solid ice as thick as the depth of the snow that was dumped in the storm (minus shrinkage)

I guess it's different up there, as the snow that came here was mixed with rain when it accumulated on the ground is now an 8" thick layer of ice wherever it wasn't removed after the storm, because within days of the storm, it all froze solid.

I guess if it never warms up, up there in the great white north, then you can go to a location a few weeks later and still plow the snow with a conventional plow, where if you tried that here, you couldn't move / budge or push any of it, as it would have been dumped, thawed, froze solid and now ready to be cut into chunks for your icebox refrigerator.


See, there is a method to my madness after all.

Nope. Just a flat rate seasonal price.

You wearing a kevlar vest GV? Cause you made that stab just bounce off you lol
Both have there good & bad sides, I prefer a nice mix of both seasonal & per visit, idealy all the low trigger ones per visit & vacationers seasonal


So I think it's time to start a new thread since this one has over 35,000 views & over 385 posts(most mine prob)
I'm sure after it gets buried under several new threads, several pages & many moons I or someone else will breath a breath of life into it for one reason or another.
It is a good look back as to the things I've done, learned, been to & seen while out doing snow removal
Thanks to all that took intrest in it & answering my questons & keeping me entertained. I'm sure the next thread will be just as much fun. Here is a link to it.

Overall this season was another win, it started slow but averaged out by the end.
