    Its not going to be easy, thats all i can say. Just do the best we can and be careful.Its the weekend so i plan on taking my time and hope keep up with it the best i can.Im more worried about the drifting that may happen.I have this loading dock that always drifts bad right infront of the door.

    40 Inches? Who told you that. I will not be suprised by 2 and a half feet but i think its unlikely that we see 40" anywhere. Just starting here now.

    Yes, your right, we all should be able to handle it otherwise we should not be plowing. Its coming down really hard now, if it keeps up like this iam heading out within the hour. Ill be plowing all night and all day tommrrow. Running both trucks, my brother driving the Jeep, me the F-150. We should be abe to do a fairly good job keeping up. I expect to get little sleep between now and monday. I will probley finish clean up late sunday night/early monday morning. Not expecting school Monday. Monday morning i will finish all my regulars and get them as clean and neat as possible. Then take all the flag downs from people trying to get out to go to work and have not dug out their cars yet. Probley end up pulling out some stuck vehicles too. Its nice powder so it won't be too bad on the trucks, should be able to push it with ease. Major, Major money from this storm!

    Blizzard

    SO what's the best way to keep up with this storm. I'm thinking attempting to clear every 4-6 inches. Any suggestions would help. Last I heard was 20-30 inches,

    BE SAFE
