    The accounts are coming in. Things are looking pretty good here. Looking forward to some snow. I have five guys (Employee's) , 2 snowblowers, shovels, and a plow ready and waiting! I have signed one large commercial lot. They want a 1/2" trigger on sidewalks and stoops, and there are a lot of them. This complex is a couple of blocks of buildings. These people want the sidewalks and steps cleared three times a day. Before 7am Before noon, and before 5pm. With the stringent demands the price was elevated payup . Signed them on and bought a new snowblower:bluebounc . Besides that account, I have signed on 4 other lots :rolleyes: . The phone is still ringing.
    Couple of questions?:help:
    What options do I have for Ice managment other than salt, and Sand? Salt is tough on concrete I know. Sand, Where do I go to get it. Unless I sign on some good contracts for Ice Managment I plan on applying Salt, Sand, etc with a Broadcaster. What are my options?
    Thanks much

    Sand is tuff to apply with a broadcast spreader as it will tend to clog up alot if there is any moisture in it at all. Salt is what I put down, I usually buy rock salt by the pallet, and use it through-out the year...Give me a call sometime and we can talk about plowing payup
