    This was a pretty fun storm. Came in 2 phases so it turned out to be about 2.5 days of plowing. It was nice, had a break in the middle to get some sleep and then pushed another fresh 5-6"s. We had a lot of drifting so really we pushed anywhere from 3-15"s. Made some massive piles.

    I didnt actually take many pictures, a little too busy but I took a few and some videos.

    Its hard to understand how big a pile is through a picture, and these piles arent HUGE but they are pretty big. And the lot they are in is what makes it so impressive since its only about 35 parking spaces.

    This turned out to be a pretty tall pile! Its about 2 feet taller than my truck.

    A fresh spread of salt and 10 minutes later its already blacktop. We picked up this lot a couple storms ago because the other guy was doing a bad job. He didnt plow curb to curb like we do and he also puts snow in handicap spots. So that is why the snow is so far off the curbs.

    It needs a sign or something saying "hey, you in the silver truck... I'm here but you dont know that so you're just gonna drive right over me causing a bunch of bouncing and noise and embarrassment.... Just warning you".
    ^that would have helped...
