    hey guys! have not been around much honestly because our winter has been pretty crappy until yesterday/today.

    After a hard hitting last two snow seasons this year got off to a very slow -late/warm start. we did not get the first snow until Nov 10th! we got about 7-8" with that first blast then a bunch of freezing rain and actual ice storms which was a bit odd.

    few pics from the first snow..

    its so hard to forecast snow here as the systems change so rapidly in the ocean...but they are calling for snow later this week we'll see if it happens or not. normally we don't have a lot of warning before we get hit.

    i just fired the truck up again and i'm getting ready to head out.

    here are the totals as of this morning, i'm right at the 20.8" area

    How's Todd doing? You have to plow him out because he didn't know it snows there?

    trucks great! i had an issue with the plow on the first snow. i'm stupid i'll say this up front...i've been working on BOSS plows for 5 years at work and i broke my own rule trying to figure out what was wrong...test the controller!!! i replaced 3 valves before i brought it to work and figured out i needed a new controller...luckily since i get everything at cost the valves and controller cost me the same as the retail price for the controller...stupid stupid stupid though! now i have extra valves!

    thats it, think positive, you got spare parts & you confirmed the fact one should test the controller first :)

    first real issue I've ever had with this almost 13 year old plow since new that's not half bad.

    gotta stay positive though..makes life easier.
