    HAMMER TO FALL
    By Queen


    Here we stand or here we fall
    History won't care at all
    Make the bed light the light
    Lady Mercy won't be home tonight yeah

    You don't waste no time at all
    Don't hear the bell but you answer the call
    It comes to you as to us all
    We're just waiting
    For the hammer to fall

    Oh every night and every day
    A little piece of you is falling away
    But lift your face the Western Way
    Build your muscles as your body decays yeah

    Toe your line and play their game yeah
    Let the anaesthetic cover it all
    Till one day they call your name
    You know it's time for the hammer to fall

    Rich or poor or famous
    For your truth it's all the same (oh no oh no)
    Lock your door the rain is pouring
    Through your window pane (oh no)
    Baby now your struggle's all in vain

    For we who grew up tall and proud
    In the shadow of the mushroom cloud
    Convinced our voices can't be heard
    We just wanna scream it louder and louder louder

    What the hell we fighting for?
    Just surrender and it won't hurt at all
    You just got time to say your prayers
    While your waiting for the hammer to hammer to fall

    It's gonna fall
    Hammer..you know..hammer to fall
    Waiting for the hammer to fall now baby
    While you're waiting for the hammer to fall

    Give it to me one more time

    We got 6" here in Cheshire, CT of pretty heavy snow...and now the ice comes. it was not the most fun to plow as I got stuck half way up my steep driveway, but luckily I just rammed the pile angling the plow and could make it up the whole way :nod:

    Weather forecasters g=here have been all over the boards. I've heard anywhere from 1 inch to 8 inches, they keep changing the forecast. Latest is 3-6 inches, we'll see what happens. In any event looks like a plowable event!!! payup

    When I feel like it basically.
    Seriousley, iam thinking the ice is going to get in around 3 or 4 maybe, its snowing pretty good now. There should be about 2" more by 12-1:30PM then i will head out and start plowing and keep everyone as clear as possible until about 6-7 PM (evening commute) probley taking short breaks in between. I like the drives as clear as possible when the customer gets home then I don't get questioned as to what i was doing all day. I will get the bulk of the real plowable snow off. Then ill revisit all the drives as needed to get rid of as little as an inch.

    37 on a regular basis, I have 5 more to take care of for this storm so that makes 42. I make good enough money for my age, enough to pay for insurence, truck, gas and to have money in my pocket.

    Just finished my 20 accounts there was 5.5" on the ground when I went out the door at 4AM :sleeping: so 4.5 was from today and I would bet 2 more fell while I was out plowing.

    I was having some problems with some of the long driveways I kept slipping on the ice.
