    We had a lot of snow snow and wind over the weekend . It was so bad you couldn't see the back of the plow lights on your truck. I tried to take pictures and video but the screen was completely white.By 4am Mon. morning I did start to get all my lots done worked out good because I started to pick off the ones that opened first and went through the list. Only had one complaint the whole weekend . Who would complain the most?:confused:

    PS in the second pix there is a building 25 feet from that pile.

    Almost looks the same way here. Now we have 50* temps along with some rain and thunderstorms in the forecast for tomorrow.

    On edit: I never realized that Honolulu could get than much snow. :jester:

    I think we got over 20 inches but it was hard to tell with 50 mph winds for 24 hrs.

    GV, thats a lot of snow man. Second picture you can barely see 20 feet past the hood of the truck. I will take more of the 2-3 inch snows anyday.

    Wow, 20 inches is definetly a pain to plow, slow to push and hard on the trucks. Where is the new truck?

    GV we had closer to 26 inches. I had murphy's laws following me around that storm. One plow truck had the plow go down twice and then blew the tranny in the other one at the end of the first night. Wound up snow blowing 24 driveways the one night and really wanted to quit.

    Those are some great pics. I like the one with the clear blue sky. Snow and wind sucks, don't seem to get much done.

    Snows gone now. Almost 65 on 12/27 .With all the snow melting everything is flooded. Only bad thing with the snow melted it's going to take longer to plow the lots again.

    Funny!! By the way, I haven't even mounted 3 of our plows onto the trucks yet. Central hydraulics so i am not worried about them working, but we haven't needed them. Grandview please quit rubbing it in.
