    I should take a couple days off work and head to Maryland or PA/Maryland state line!!! I could pay off my truck early!

    They were putting Plows on garbage trucks in NYC one morning on the news. That was kind of interesting. Don't see much of that around here.

    Yea, here in Chicago when the Streets and Sanatation dept cant keep up with the snow on the roads, usually 10inches or more,
    they mount plows on the garbage trucks. Kinda funny.
