    yeah finally a little snow, about 6 inches or so. it was pretty wet and heavy to scoop. got to try out my plow, worked great.
    my lots look better than the city streets, i think they gave up cause it was pretty warm today.

    hope this isnt the only snow we get!!!

    We got our 10"-12" over here on Wed/Thurs. Wet, nasty heavy, stuff that took about twice as long to oush as normal. Spent 17 hours in the truck, the last four helping a friend/competitor who broke down 2/3 of his trucks. Half tons, Meyer snow plows, and 10" of wet cement, what a combination. Glad to help, could be me someday. Everything from early on froze underneath, no traction even in the gravel lots. Pre-salting on the blacktops made all the difference. Now for the next one:rolleyes:

    SCL, You ever get in a bind give me a ring. I am in Dixon Doing a few accounts so I could help if you ever need it. We did pretty well with this storm. Done in about 12 hours and everything went well. I pre-salted for the first time and could tell a difference in the traction in those lots. My cell number is 499-5559.
