    14 hours today , probably a full day tomorrow, I had to leave something undone at almost every commercial account to keep time just to make the places open to traffic. We had up to four inches per hour in the middle of it in Western CT, In the middle of the day I got an SOS call for a tow, a buddy of mine slid down a driveway took off a garage door, door frame, the corner of the building, everything...it was quite a site...I got him out of the hole, can't say much for the garage- the customer didn't seem to mind all that bad.:realmad: What a day

    Measured 18" at my house. Roads are very good in most of the area, everyone kept/ is keeping up with it fine. Drifting is a problem but won't be once the winds die down. Temps were around 25 when the snow started and fell to the upper teens by noon making for nice powder that was easy to push. I have been out on and off since 7 am, I just got back about 20 mins ago. I will be back out tommrrow before the commute to make sure everyone is completely clean then likely plowing parking spaces at a condo complex in the middle of the day when everyone is at work. It snowed very hard for quite a while but it was not a huge deal to keep up with, I'll take this over 4" of slop any day.

    16 hours start to finish. Had about 2 hours of down time on one truck with a bad solenoid (probably from lack of use). Thank gawd for S&S, and Thanks Rob and Frank for the help. Fortunately wewere back up and running just as the heavy stuff started. Will be headed back out in the A.M to salt.

    Had a good time, even though I broke the mirror on my new F250, and found out somethings wrong with the 4x4. At least its under warranty.

    All in All... Its about Damn Time.

I think we had 25-26 inches and i was out for 21 hours. i started a thread last week asking the long time plowers how do you plow a huge storm like 25-30 inches and now I can add my self to that list, Wow, are the bills are going to be huge, like 5Xpayup , hehe, one last thing, my chevy2500hd hands down kicked some ass in those 4-6 foot drifts,

    I feel the pain of breakdowns. Originally we were to get 12", then downgraded to 8", and then right before it began snowing they changed it to 1-3". We had all commercials open by 6:30 a.m. went to get the Intl. to salt and the airlines were frozen. (somebody didn't park it inside) De-thawed them went to salt the first property and broke the sprocket and hub assembly on the auger. After a 3 hour repair process we finally got to salt.
