    Suppose to get 3-6/4-7 inches by tommorow evening. The plow is hooked up and I am ready to roll.

    Last time I plowed was on 1/6 and that was only one parking lot. The last time I did the whole route was in December some time.

    I need to borrow a digital camera but I will get a picture as soon as I can. Maybe my friend who has one can take a picture tommorow while I am plowing. I will call him in the morning.
