    Finally, end of March
    2nd real plowable event of the entire season. (really since Feb 14th, 2007)

    Most snow since Dec 2006

    We've got 6-8 which is by far the best snow of the last two years, further south got a lot more. Got some serious 2' plus drifts though.

    Finally get to prove all the tractor work. Nothing like moving huge piles with ease, while truck guys were struggling

    Also, finally got to use the snowblower that we bought TWO YEARS AGO. (works good)

    I hear you. The storm your getting now is heading right for us. I had to go out and get the equipment back out and put on the SS and the truck. Should be a good money maker if it all plays out.

    For plowing around here its been a beans and corn bread type winter. :cry:

    Best storm in 2 years.

    8 solid inches yesterday, more than 1 removal at most places. (man did it come down for a while in the middle of the day, by the time you finished a lot it was covered again)

    then it stopped, everyone had been sent home, could move around, cleaned everything up, got home at 5pm and it started up again.

    2 more inches overnight

    another cleaning for most.

    more money in last 2 days plowing than all of 2008

    well, I keep putting my tip jar on the truck, but it falls off when I stack a pile.

    I honestly did have to remember where to put the piles in some places.

    Took a few hours to really get back in the grove.

    Big wet heavy snows you forget how big a pile you can really make. The 2nd day I saw kids building little snow forts out of the piles.
