    Got another 21in on top of the 28.5in we got 3 days ago. This storm was bad alot of down trees. I didn't get alot of pics. But i did get a flat tire:angry:

    I was stuck in a neighborhood cuz of a down tree. I went up to do the cu-de-sac and a tree fell in the mean time blocking me in. I was there for 1.5hr waiting for someone to come with a chainsaw to get me out.

    This is pic of the flat.

    I get paid by the hour. So i was happy sitting there waiting for someone to come. I wasn't even going to risk push in that tree. So i just laid back and waited. Got a little nap in. :p

    I can't just sit and wait during a storm. I would have done something to get out of there. That looks like a mess to plow.

    How do you like plowing with those mud tires? (when not flat of course)

    I'm thinking very heavily about purchasing a new Fisher 8'6" HD for next season, how has yours been holding up so far? Any bugs we should know about?

    Nifty setup with the compressor and the truck sounds tough.

    That is a nice set up. I use to have my gas compresser in the truck with me all the time when I ran the cap on the truck and it was a life saver a few times.

    Always carry an air tank with me. Once had to swap a tire in the middle of a snowstorm on the side of a county road....not fun.
