    I about puked waiting in anticipation for this storm, but was quickly relieved when I was called out to check the lots. I'm a sub by the way, I have one of my own accounts that I sub out to another company.

    Here are some pics of a couple of parking garages that I do....snow is going to stick to these real easy all year, since the lots are elevated 4 or 5 floors of the ground, with just open more parking underneath.

    I have some vids too that I will try to post up later..

    It seemed as if I was bit rusty operating the plow for the first 5 minutes or so...almost as if I couldn't believe I finally got a storm or somethin, then It all just kicked right in.

    This is in Golden, Co by the way.

    Hope you guys enjoy.

    So once those snow piling areas are full, do you haul the snow away, or blow it over the side or what?

    skid steers and a sterling dump that the contractor brings....

    He parks the dump below and the skids toss the snow over the edge and 4 stories down.

    Thanks, you did see that last year, different route this season

    I'm a sub...got assigned to Golden, which is good since the city of Golden gets more snow than Denver.

    I consider Golden to be in the Denver Metro area.

    ^^^It can't hold any weight...I'm stressing out about this salt spreader I "need" to buy being to big for my truck....I'm still going to buy it though, if something breaks, I'll be forced to buy something new, just can't justify another truck right now unless I "need" it.

    thanks guys,

    Nothing really to speak of here in South Denver, My jobs are all in the Tech Center. Maybe well get some more tonight, calling for a 80% chance of snow late and a wintry mix for tomorrow.

    I'll send the 3 legged measuring stick out around 3am ;)

    That place looks like a real pita! Only a few small places to put snow. No thanks, I'll stay away from elevated lots.
