    I know this may be a stretch, and everyone wants help they can depend on for all snow events not just lake effect. But I'm gonna roll the dice and maybe by chance there's someone in NE Ohio that needs help with lake effect.
    I already have a contract in Columbus OH with Brickman, yet all we've seen in the way of snow is a dusting. All the while our friends to the north get to have all of the fun with a beautiful stream of lake effect snow. So if there is anyone that would be willing to throw a Columbus dog a bone I'm your man!

    Same here in Cincinnati, I have been thinking about heading north to some of the deeper stuff. We work for Brickman/Groundmasters and have plowed for them over the last 6 years. I guess that I am just a junkie for the powder, snow that is.lol I just picked up a 01 Ram with a Blizzard 810 and am itching to work it. Like I said, I am under contract to Brickman, but if somone is interested in help when we are dry and you are burried I would be interested in a roadtrip... erem@cinci.rr.com Yes i am insured.lol

    I'm north of Indianapolis and itching to do the same. I am undercontract with Hittles here but have not even hooked my plow up yet. If anybody needs help anywhere I will travel if there is work. I am laid off till April so I have time. Let me know if I can help.

    I have some other feelers out there. If I come across something I will let you guys know, maybe we can travel together or share hotel rooms or something to keep the cost down and the profit higher.

    I think there is a Brickman in Cadillac Michigan. Do you guys have an in with them being your contracted in Ohio?...They have been getting dumped on this year. It might be worth asking about.

    Best thing to do is just call them, but down here they want only primary subs, ppl who come when they call and have no other commitments. Try them anyway. Might be a bit far for me, I was thinking more of Akron Cleveland and Stow areas...

    Ain't that the truth!

    Hell, I'd head to that state up north or anywhere (they're nation wide ya know) and plow through Brickman. The thing about that is they want you available and ready for anything that might happen where you've already got contracted properties. So they're nun to helpful when it comes to sending local help out of town.

    If anyone does come across anything please keep us posted!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:salute:

    Noat a word, I have called and they lady said she will have somebody call me...No word yet... Have you plowed at all this year? My roomate is in Livonia MI and she said they get measurable snow about everyother day. She is looking for some contractors. Most of them what you there all the time, that seems to be the battle.

    That's just it, they want all or nothing. I've dropped my plow once this season with really no measurable snow in sight for the future. With people to the north and north east getting record snowfall I just don't understand how they don't need any help.

    I agree....I would go for weeks at a time if it pays... They forcast snow here and we get rain, were just on the edge temp wise. If I come across something I will let you know, I am not affraid to travel...
