    Well, this latest storm was forecasted to dump up to 16" on us last night, but I thought if we even get half that, I'll be busy, and that's about what we got. So, I was out at 4:30 am this morning pushing like a mad-man. My biggest commercial contract is with the school district, and the whole place has to be cleared & done by 7:30 am. So I snapped a few photos of this job, even tho it was still snowing hard,...

    I took some pictures with flash, others without,... flash showed the snow falling more, without flash was better, but harder to hold without making them blurry...

    Yep, about +12° this morning,... but supposed to get down to -15° tonight,... so I'd say we are in full-blown winter mode at this point & on,...

    Very nice, makes me jealous!

    Also, if your camera has an adjustable ISO feature, you can turn it up to help reduce blurriness, however there will be a bit more noise within the picture itself.

    I guess we've had about 3 so far,... first one on Sept. 30th was about 9", then we had several light dustings, with one about 3" or so, and even tho that isn't isn't enough for people here to worry about, I had several jobs by folks that hadn't had it done to that point, then yesterday was about 7"-8", with some areas a little more, some less, altho most of what had fallen up until yesterday had melted. I plowed from 4:30am until almost mid-night, with one lunch/gas break about 4pm. Got up this morning to -18 below zero, so I don't think this is gonna melt,... :D:bluebounc

    Wow you are sure lucky. I cannot wait for the snow to come here in SE Wisconsin!

    Very nice equipment too. My cousin owns a snowplowing business and he has boss and blizzard plows. He loves all the v-plows he has, but the blizzard with the extendable wings is quickly becoming his favorite.

    I usually do, and will later, but these first dry & light snows push very easy, with no big piles or snow banks to deal with yet. Truck doesn't work hard at all to do this, but later on, I will strap something on the back. Will post more pics later today,.. last night when I got home, I went right to sleep.... I think I can get caught up with all the plowing by the end of today, if I don't get too many more calls,... :salute:
