    she will be starting soon! allthough i'm alittle bit behind alaskaboss we also got snow this morning. i thought i'd share a few pics.

    luckly i have a few weeks(we hope) before it sticks for good. i'm glad because i still need my new snow tires put on the excursion and expedition!

    good thing is, the plow truck is all ready to go. gonna hold off on springs this season i think. but we did alot of other work it should be very reliable and run great!

    haha no russia just more alaska... lol

    i put the plow on the truck a few days ago just to check everything out...all looks good! we'll see though as the first snow allways helps work out kinks.

    i'm planing on bulding another ballest box for the bed this season...hopfully better then my last one allthough it did work very well. thinking around 500-600lbs should do it.

    I hope you remembered to put the stand up on your plow before you went too far.

    nope, lol its stuck right there...its not hitting the ground anymore. but i fixed it last year..then later in the winter i forgot it and bent the pin for it again when it did hit. so its stuck there for right now. at work i see this all the time so i dont feel too bad about it. but it was pretty dumb i'll admit. i may fix it soon i may leave it idk

    but truck hasnt left the driveway with the plow yet haha

    Is the ground cold enough for the snow to stay on the roads.
