    You are going to travel all the way to Buffalo from Long Island? As far as I can see the travel expenses will kill your profits. Kind of a long distance even if work is available.

    Several years ago 3-4 , I traveled upstate North blindly into snow bound area's to plow when there was no snow in sight on LI.

    I came across at times few localities to plow. didnt make too much other then days wages at times, but was able to see some nice scenery, spend a few days away from LI and get into the snow..

    At the time I was never asscociated with any organizations nor linked to any other contractors yet I did it..I like the snow. The expenses I believe can be minimul from past experience.

    I wasnt posting a message foolishly, "Im out of work this week", finished up on my installations, so anything I will take right now. Im not looking to make an enormous prophit,the expenses I will endure somehow.

    When I lived in Montana, it was not unusual to cross a state over night to show up for a job site for work,, out there was either a logging job or to fight a forrest fire with the FS.

    To me its a hop skip and a jump, to many others yes its not feasable.

    Mmmmmm Christmas dinner was sure good, Im stuffed now

    Hope all enjoyed theirs also

    Doubt any of us on here needed any help, but I'm sure some of the non forums plowers could have used any help thay could have got. Of cource thay prolly wouldnt have payed either.
    It's sad when all my drives are down to pavement (as close as possible) and I pass by drives that are marked but not plowed.

    Were all cought up here, If only certin highway dept's would do thier job it would make everyone else's so much easier.
    Gotta love Amherst's best. Thay plan thier routes very well. Know the prioritys, and have the right equipment for the job. Thay can keep up with almost anything we get and is the best looking town in the area always.

    Yesterday had to be the worst, all drives lined on all sides with piles. Everything was closed down simply becasue there is just no more room for this stuff. The thruway was close partily becasue thay took the plows off and put em on the local roads to open more up for emergency travel. Untill the national guard troops could come in and haul some of this stuff out. Thay turned the Bills stadium into a huge parking lot for truckers. At least the stadium is finnaly getting some use. Most towns are looking great, the city is still working on openeing things up. Driving is still horrible not becasue of road conditions but becasue its imposible to see arround corners at stop signs.

    Thanks GotGrass,,

    The owner of that company is Don P

    I was asked by Doris's son (a friendof mine out in Texas now) to give Don a call if I didnt make it there as predicted or call someone else etc..,
    I sent him email of your photos, he was flipping out over them, He was an old friend of Don years back.
    Don has some big accounts up there supposably
