    im watching the white gold fall from the sky now, i went to home depot to pick up 250 lbs of salt, when i got there, people were allready guarding what was left, then another pallet came and we were on our way..

    just signed 5 shell stations for a one night deal, and i have a clark down the street that needs plowing. $300 in all if it gets over 2 inches, which is nice, considering this will be my second time plowing ever, im getting the hang of it :)
