    I just though I'd throw out a few pics of the latest storm. We ended up with 18" between Sunday and early Monday. I plowed once Sun. night, there was about 10" then and again Mon. morning. Didn't get any action pics though. The first few are from Sunday morning and that night when I got home. The last ones are the next morning.

    Sorry! I just drove down that night. 130 miles usually takes 2 and a half hours and it took me 5! Had a wheel bearing start screaming at me on the way down. That was a nice $400 fix! I didn't feel like plowing that night but I knew if I didn't it would be a pain the next morning. I have to plow up hill from the road on part of the drive!

    You see...I would have plowed with the storm, and been finishing up when you started taking pics...taking it nice and easy all night.

    If there is an inch or two on the top of my truck when I start to go out to plow...I know I've already started two late.

    And of course I'm not seasonal...I think my quality of service would go way down with seasonal plowing...I would pray for no snow, and when It did, I would just wait till it's all over and have to plow a chit ton. I just don't like that concept.

    sorry for the rant...back on subject.

    Nice pics.;)

    I agree Blade, I would have stayed on top of it if I was home. I didn't get there until 9 that night and by then there was already about 10". The second pic is my tracks when I got home.

    Those pics are in Baileyville. I'm working in Fort Fairfield and go home on my days off until we can sell the house. If I take Rt 9 west from Baileyville , it's just under 90 miles to Bangor.
