    This is going to be the biggest storm Ive plow so far. There is like 7-8" on the ground right now. It light and fluffy. I'm hopping i only have to do my res. once. (i get paid the same either way)

    You will be fine. But if you have to push twice you should get paid payup If not you need to set your contracts up different.

    My biggest one was last year. It was 38 inches with drifts. It was not fun.

    I get paid by snow fall

    My standard deal with the average res. is $25 a storm + $10 for over 10" another $10 over 20" and so on.

    Thanks for the input guys

    Hey Dave. I plowed the same storm as Dave did. Yes I plowed it, no I wouldn't want to do it everytime.

    How come we aren't getting some sleep and getting rested for the next 2 days of hard work.

    I guess we never learn.. :rolleyes: Actually I find it hard to relax. It's like a bolt of adrenaline or something. I can't stop checking the weather, plowsite etc.
