    Woo Hoo its snowing here in Cranbrook!! It's been 6 days since the last snowfall, so ive been doing salt/sanding and catching up on other handyman jobs. It's calling for close to 2 cm so not much but it should be enough for me and 2-4 of my guys. Hope it snows where you all are tonight as well, time for a few goodnight drinks and off to bed. good luck all.

    a few snow pics

    Here is a few pics I took over the last few days, with this great sunrise came a decent storm that night. Winter is turning around nicely, I got snow & a crew that shows up for workThumbs Up It is suppost to go back above freezing for the next 2 weeks though, so maybe that was it:dizzy:

    Yes, it was painfully slow, then next to nothing for all dec. but the last 9 days have been pretty good, 5 plowable events. 2 of those were not forcasted/expected, so it's been keeping me busy, plus I picked up a few new accounts.

    WOW what a day!

    Well my area got a good 6-7" - 15-17cm snow storm. 3 guys didnt show for work, on this the biggest storm of the year. :realmad: 2 are fired, 1 quit. I ran out of gas in a drivway:realmad: & had to get a ride to the gas station(looked real professional) Darn Dodge is a pig on gas in 4x4, while plowing & driving in deep snow.
    Had a guy call me to plow his 1.3 acre store lot, he offered to pay $25 LMFAO:laughing: He was serious! I told him I'd do it for 3 times that(even that a deal) he said never mind then. What a joke!
    Anyway, I was so busy I didnt really get any pics, other then these two. One a view from bobcat, other of the dodge cleaning up. 18hrs to do all customers and calls. Sleep time:sleeping:

    Another small snowfall

    Well I got a bit more snow, not much though. Maybe 1-3" depending on which side of town.
    Pretty crappy Feb for snow, Snow totals are way down. Maybe in March it will snow. :laughing:

    I've got snow!

    Well winter isn't over here I guess. Every day for the last 3 days we have got a sciff of snow, just enought to do my 3 zero tolerance sites & thats all! Forcast was the same 1cm, but they were wrong. I got about 1-3 inches(depending on side of town), just enough to do a majority of accounts. Here is a few pics of the snow.
