    Weather guys had us down for snow anywhere from 1-6 inches. Started around 3 am and it was everyone's favorite wet snow.5 hours of plowing and I burned almost 15 gallons of gas on this one. I had some lots North and had the full 6 inches but my South lots had only about 3 inches in them.I'd rather have a foot of fluffy snow the 3 inches of wet.

    Nice pics.

    r u serious about rather having a foot of the fluffy stuff, than 3 inches of wet?

    a foot of fluffy would take a lot longer than the 3 inches of wet to plow.

    I hear ya about the wet snow though...I finally had some dry stuff to push around today.

    grandview - how come you dont run a snow foil/rubber flap on the top of your blade.

    I really like that driveway. No drips anywhere, those fords must be doing you well.
