    Only been up here a year full time

    Dont know the diner by name,where is or was it located?
    The sounds of winter,Neighbor plowing across the street,neighbor to the right warming up his snowblower...Ahhhhhh I remember winter.
    If this keeps up there maybe some winter income afterall.....

    Right on the main street. Going north it was on the left,near the harware store. Before the old RR station. I used to vacation in a small town right next door (Eaton) but it's been almost 20 years.

    I think that whole strip has changed in the past few years...Before the RR station heading north there is For Your Paws Only(cool pet supply store) which could have been a Hardware store at one time.Then there is a small breakfast place, not by that name though, more Yuppie supposed to be a good breakfast.... then a gas station and not much else until north of the station/park.
    The past few seasons have been tough up here,with the lack of natural snow the past two winters,A wet spring,with the new water and sewer line being installed threw town the businesses have had a tough go of it....Have to have deep pockets to stay open.....I've seen dealers advertising leftover 05 snowmobiles...That is BAD!

    It's snowing up here on the coast of Maine right now. Right now there is about 2" on the ground and it's still coming down :D The weatherman said there was only supposed to be an dusting to an inch, last time he said that we got about 4-6" that was 3 weeks ago, I hope it's a repeat performance.

    I'm happy for ya!

    Frankly, here I'm looking for a few days respite. Got a little time off today and buried the snowmobile - digging out again!:(

    Ha Ha

    We ended up with about three inches....More than the D-2" predicted..Nice light snow just the same.They say it will be up near 50 by Thursday.Go Figure!
    I know to well about digging out sleds from that Rocky Mountain powder....A couple of friends and myself would take two weeks every March and stay at my cousins in Winter Park,ride Rabbit Ears,Gravel,Chicken,Super Chicken etc...It is nice riding all day and never crossing a single track.....Not the same back east!!! Not even close.
    Photo of cousins RMK 800 156"track running nitrous,bunch of cowboys out there.lol

    They were calling for freezing rain last night and this morning. I got up at 3:00 to go salt and it was just Rain:cry: not a bit frozen. Oh well I should be used to it by now. Why should things change just because its a new year.

    After thirteen years.......

    I hear you....After thirteen years commercial plowing on the New England coast ,I can tell you my spreaders brought in 5x's what my straight plows brought in a season.
    If I had stayed in the business I would be running calcium tankers now.
    The snow fighters where cool trucks but the people in charge have a short memory as to why they need them around.After a season like last year and so far this year my hours would have been cut in half....
