    Eric ELM,

    I think we've gotten more snow in December that we have in the last two years combined! Can't wait to see what January and February are gonna bring...

    I'm just outside of Phily, we got around 6-10. had to plow all drives & clear all walks twice. We were out from 6:30 in the morning till around midnight. Stopped home for about an hour & 1/2 to eat and put some dry cloths on. This was my first time out and I must say all went very well. The honda blowers that Dino and alot of other guys recomended are worth their weight in gold. Them suckers will eat through a 2 ft snow bank if you don't hold them back. We were blowing circles around "Joe Home owner" with the big 2 stage Depot specials!! Can't wait for the next event.............LET IT SNOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    10-12" in NW Vermont, along with one tire popped on a broken off marker stake (or maybe the culvert it was marking), one broken cylinder pivot bolt which resulted in a cut hose as well, and one cell phone that went brain dead. Other than that we got all the per push twice. Time for some sleep and then out tonight and tomorrow to clear the commercials for opening hour on Tuesday.
