    Come on now! haha. We had a good 8 inches I'd say that storm. He did a lot with the shutter speed and aperture of the camera and all that stuff to give it that really dramatic effect. However, it really was snowing pretty hard.

    I don't do resi's. I only have 2 driveways and they are both owned by people that own commercial lots we plow, so we have to do them.

    Ohh I was under the impression that you had more then 2. How many commercials do you do?

    Well I did have many many more than 2, but there is just not enough money in it for me. I dropped them all 2 years ago now. And all I do is ***** about having to do the two we do now.

    I'm not sure the # of commercials off the top of my head, but its more than enough to keep my equipment busy, and the lowes that we do really keeps us all busy. Its just a bunch of gas stations, office buildings, retails stores, pizza huts, etc.

    Do your tractors mainly stay at lowes?

    That's just the cutest little ProTech I've ever seen.....

    jk, nice operation you got there. You say you hired this guy to take pictures of you eh? Sure seems like the only way to get any photos of yourself actually working.

    Didn't you make a few videos yourself earlier this season or last? I remember you having a smaller JD tractor and no red chevy or case then....looks like your doing well!

    How much fuel do you figure the bigger tractor burns during an average storm?

    I really don't have a exact answer, but last storm I ran it for 18 hours straight and burnt well under 20 gallons. Those things are awesome on fuel.

    So whats the plan for the older 1500 come summer? Was that one of those too good to pass up deals, I remember you saying it used to be yours at some point right? Have the bigger purchases like the tractor and skid been as beneficial as you anticipated or are there any regrets / things you looked past? Impressive as always, must run in the name :drinkup:
