    Actually ,it comes from the Cleavland area then hits the cold air from Canada and picks up the moisture off the lake.

    Looks like your passenger side plow light is out. Be careful with that new truck. What's under the hood?

    What is that yellow pimple on the back of the truck? I think my sidewalk spreader holds more than that gizmo?

    Almost 700 miles on it.
    I don't salt much,big enough for what I need to do. Plow is from the truck I traded in,it's 10 years old now. I just had a new truck side put on.
    Does have some extra power to it.
