    well its that time of year guys, we have had our first snow up the hill at the 2000' elevation with rain/snow mixing at my house as i type. winter is right around the corner! this wont stay but the real stuff is coming. thought i'd share the pics from tonight. taken at 9pm 9/28/12 in Anchorage Hillside.

    gotta get the plow all serviced, a exhaust system put on the truck and an oil change in it and i should be all ready to go!

    happy plowing!

    I know you're used to it but it's far too early for that stuff down here.

    Looks nice though.

    yeah, this is not our earliest snow fall. but this did kind of take everyone by surprise. i have 8 sets of snow tires i have to get mounted on 8 cars/trucks so i should prolly start on that now since studded tires have been legal since sept 15th.

    here was the offical numbers from around town.

    i got around 3-4" at my house. up the hill it actually stuck to the roads and made it alittle slick.

    i went out to Wasilla and Palmer today which just barley got a dusting it was a beautiful sunny day but did not get out of the low 40s.

    real stuff today! ranging from .4" to 6" depending where in town you were.

    i got home, hooked the plow up. filled the truck up. had a bad miss. same plug wire that bothers me every year. went to push it back on and it busted in my hand. so i had a extra old one i slapped on but im going to replace all of them this weekend! after that she ran wonderful!!!

    Good video. I see the inspector showed up just as you were finishing to make sure it was done right.
