    So I figured I would start a brand new thread for the group of Fargo/Moorhead area guys that are on plowsite. Feel free to post your pictures of the winter as it progresses. So far only one plowable event this year. Calling for 2-4 tonight with lots of wind. I'll believe it when I see it.

    This is what I see out my front window right now.

    Hopefully that will be white later tonight.

    24 Hrs later...1 inch later. That was the most pathetic storm I have ever seen. Hyped it up all week and then we got 1 Inch. 35mph winds blew up some nice drifts we got to push though.

    I'll have to take some pics around Wahp tomorrow. It's a mess. Looks like 2-3 inches packed on main street. Rough as hell. Stupid. There's like 2 feet piled up in front of my garage door. Apparently I'm supposed to deal with it.

    yeah sounds like you guys got a bit more just to the south of us. With the wind we had some lots that had a good 6 or 7 inches drifted in them and then on the next lot there was nothing.

    yeah im sure he does. Its kinda funny..he had one of there little hatch back cars for awhile and this guy is a big dude. I see they finally upgraded him to a larger one.

    Well, at least you got to watch a little snow fall.


    BTW,


    I've read that you guys have the lowest unemployment rate in the country up there.

    Good for you guys ! Must be nice to be where nearly everyone is working, and not sitting on their asses watching Judge Judy;)

    We got about a foot back home in Cyrus. Spent the day in school digging the schools semis out of snowbanks -_-


    Mostly because of the Bakken.

    We were only going to get 2-3" and got a foot! :rolleyes:

    If it makes you feel any better, it wasn't any fun for us either....

    Not much action going on around here lately. Had a dusting the other day and had to do some sanding. Heres a couple pics of sanding, a pic of the Ford moving a drift or two a couple of weeks ago and the last pic of my Dodge from when I got rear ended a couple of weeks ago by a gal with no license or insurance. (made my day)

    We got another inch or so on Sunday night the 23rd. We ran a small crew and got everything cleaned up pretty fast. Here's a couple pics and video from the night and the morning of the 24th.
    I was running Cat #1 due to the operator being in Florida for Christmas.(I would rather push snow anyways lol)

    I'm new to the industry and am wondering what the going rates in North Dakota might be. I'm also looking to possibly sub under someone for the remainder of this season. If anyone has any information for me, it would be greatly appreciated. Good to see some fellow North Dakotans out there!!

    I tried to PM you but it wont let me as your settings must have PMs turned off or something.

    Ive checked my settings, but nothing in there will allow me to do pm's. When I try to it says my account is not allowed that privelage with a bunch of generic reasons. Emailed admin to see if they can help. I'll let you know when I get it figured out.
