    :) I have 2000' of gravel road to plow. I don't plan to plow it again this season. I'll post some pics of the finished job.

    I hear ya. I have a 1/2 mile gravel driveway at my house that I don't plow after it starts to thaw out. I use my tractor bucket if I get a good storm, but luckily this year that hasn't happened.

    I have the tractor option also. I also have friends with plows I could borrow if we got a huge storm for some reason. 1 April is a week from Friday....:)

    Like I said, March is not the best time to repaint a plow. Good thing you have a plow you can use.

    I like that map a lot more than the ones I'm seeing locally here. They have us in 6-12" down here on all the local stations :(

    They claim we got 5+ overnight but in actuality it's closer to 2-3 from melting on the roads.

    I had 7 ½ “ @ 0830 today. That has since compressed. There is so much water content that when you push it into a pile it turns ocean blue in the center. I’m liking that stainless nine footer .I just picked it up a few inches and angled it and it moved that stuff with ease without making a mess of the gravel road. Using this plow today could prove costly for me in the fall….:rolleyes:
