    I found about 200 pictures on a camera from Baltimore last year, Figured I would share some. I will add more in the coming days if I get time. The pictures are of a street that we cleaned up and some the deep snow and the bulldozer clearing snow, It was that BAD!

    More pictures, Everytime I look at these pics I wish we had more equipment down there than just the 2 skids and 3 trucks, but we will be there again if this happens for sure with more equipment! Shout out to Brian as well he was with us!

    Were you down there?

    Everyone went to DC, but Baltimore was hit the hardest, They just talked about DC more on the news, I think that is one reason why some people who had no plan just headed there and hoped to make money.

    Yeah it was a lot of work down there, If we could have only stayed a few more days it would have been even better.

    No.....but we had a total of 70-80 for the winter....Philly had 78 for the season. We just did not have the problems they had down there, as i feel we prob handeled it better. My friend lives in baltimore, and from what he said i would def agree that it was worse then DC. Thats cool that you guys went down there, i would have def done it also. I saw brians thread, and he said it was worth it money wise...so thats def good to hear for both of you

    Who payed you? The township? And how did you about go attaining the work/contract? I heard about that, I had my own stuff to maintain. Never understood how guys got paid from all the work though...

    Some work was private, The main chunk was paid through emergency disaster zone funds I believe. Several states were declared disaster areas by the govt

    As EGLC said above, did someone call you or did you call someone? You didn't just jump in the truck, knock on the city hall door and say "Ok im here to plow" did you?

    Nice pictures What did the trucks do? I see work for skids and larger equipment by the few pics it doesnt look like there was much truck work?

    LOL Coliin, from some "other parties". We're great at keeping everyone guessing and thats the way it's going to stay! Sorry guys but I didn't go nuckinfutz for 2 days prepping so everyone else can profit from this! Yes it was TONS of red tape and burned up a few minutes on the phone and fax. Next time Collin.....a couple loaders and a skid steer or two more. We just got an invite to some Mayor's dinner with a bunch of Baltimore's upper brass but we respectfully declined.
