    Who ever said the (Springtime) Fat Lady was singing must of just had his radio up too loud, cause we just got a top five all time snow-fall for one event. I did my route 3 times in 24 hours back to back.

    This is one of my residentials, like all of my accounts, I'm running out of room.:cry:

    same view but without the flash so you can't see the snow falling.

    more cool shots of plowing the lot with lots of snow. With 3" it takes me 33 minutes, with 10" it took me 1hr and 4 minutes.

    This is at another one of my lots and as you can see, by the time I had plowed it and threw some salt down, there was already 1" built back up:dizzy:

    Hey, good to here from ya, um, funny thing about the shop comment...... some idiot thought 4 wheel drive ment go 50mph in a snow storm, and used my truck as a emergency brake:realmad: waiting to see if they total it or just replace every panel but the hood and drivers door. Picts on that one later. Truck is working but she don't look too good and the check engine light keeps needing to be reset.

    What I would give to plow those storms....

    but anyway, quick question, do you use 4 hi or 4 low to plow that much snow, especially in the p-lot.

    gotta use hi, I'm moving forward at 15 and reversing at 20:p

    I use low range only if I am stuck or pulling out a stump.

    Hey Green,
    If you put the plow on next time you could push more snow than just using the front of the truck!:D

    Man I wish I had a foil for that one! The video was only 5" of snow, that was the morning, but the night before was 10" and was just flying over the passenger side of the hood.

    Didn't someone put a plow into the side of your truck last year?
