    Been staring at this plow in my driveway all summer. Needs paint but all the fluids are new, didn't push a flake last year. 2 skid steers ready to roll too. Bring back those blizzards we used to get!!!

    They're tough to come by... Ryder Trucks in deer park has a few... I may be selling a 1999 GMC 3500hd 6.5 diesel with a myers plow, has a 16yd landscape dump body.

    First Push!

    After a 3hr ride home from NYC, had to put blade on and get ready.....went to rain at 10pm so i started to push.....back to snow at 12am, packed it in till 4am.....still snowing at 4am!!!! We got about 4inches on ground, if colder would have been more! Plowed all accounts. Earliest bill going out in my 20yrs of doing this stuff!! Hope everyone has a safe season, and recovers from Sandy!ussmileyflag

    So whats the general concensus for this weeks episode? I was hopeful with that west coast storm but seems to not be coming our way. Heres to hoping for some pushing this week.

    All I've picked up on is 1-3inches (light? heavy?) coming in during the day and ending around 2pm.
