    Hey guys, just thought I'd share a few pictures of the first real plowable snow in the Kansas City area. I sure am ready for more!

    We got between 4-4.5" down here. I'm actually about 45 minutes south of KC. It was easy to push, but it did like to blow around a lot.

    That's same forecast I am seeing here
    I love the ice faster money spreading salt

    But wouldn't mind some snow to try out my new tires on my skid

    Hopefully the ice goes North then:nod: I don't mind it, it is easy money, but the fun is all in the plowing for me. Money is money though, won't complain too much either way

    We were stacking that's for sure. Down in Belton we were making piles! Nothing though compared to the New England area. I can't believe I was excited to go push the little we got.

    I don't live in Belton, we do the Aldi's down there. They had a good 4 inches there. I'm between pleasant Hill and Lone Jack. Definitely a small world! That's hilarious lol

    Thank you! it's a 2001 with 150,xxx miles. It was spotless up until last plow season, I conveniently found a pole after I slid sideways into it. After a new tailgate & bumper, it's good as new.. She may be older but she sure is fast!

    About 1.5 inches. I was out plowing and salting from 2300-0530 this morning. Have one more, my self storage place to go do, but was waiting for daylight. No rush to get them done. I had no trouble getting around, but turned on the news while the wife was getting ready this morning and there are wrecks everywhere. I think MoDOT dropped the ball. A lot of snow packed (turning to ice) roads this morning. I saw on the 6pm news yesterday that I guess they went out for yesterday's evening rush hour and put down salt brine which of course immediately turned to ice, wrecks everywhere. Really? Brineing when it's 12 degrees? DUH!
