    I was out friday morning for a little while after we got about 2.5" in my neck of the woods; thought I'd share a few pictures with you all.

    Some of the piles (mostly old stuff) at one of our local shopping plazas. A buddy of mine plows this with his step-fathers business, I believe they use three trucks and a John Deere back hoe w/ a 10' push box! They have fun.

    It was! Pretty heavy for just 2.5".... We got some freezing rain mixed in with it, hence the beautiful trees/shrubs!

    Great pics. When it sticks to the trees you know it is wet, heavy crap.

    Diesel here is $4.73 for a US gallon in Canadian $.

    Great pics, I rather do 6 inches of dry than 2 inches of wet.
    I paid $138.9 / liter or $5.48 a US gallon at Pet Can. its ridiculous.:realmad:

    I'm with you on that one, the wet stuff just clogs up the blowers. Diesel is also stupid, what really gets me going is how its $4.73/gal in USD but gas is only $4.04:realmad::gunsfiring:

    nice. i wanted to get one more plowing in this year, but now i just want it to warm up and be done with this cold crap. we were supposed to get 1-3" the other night but it ended up being 1/4" of rain and 35degrees.

    jkiser96, I know what you mean... Sickening!! When I'm on "E" it's around $125 to top her off!!!
    cet,Paul Vanderzon,musclecarboy: I cannot believe how high diesel up across the northern border!!!! $5.48/gal. that's hard to swallow! tymusic
    nickplowing1972, Thanks. Usually up in here in north east Indiana were good for a descent snow right around the beginning of April, I think that was it!! I am hoping for some warmer weather now!!! Just two days before the snowwe had 50s and sun...
    Unimount219, Unimount I'm straight across the state from you on I 80/90. Probably a two and a half hour drive. Pretty much everything 10 miles south of me and beyond only got rain, we were right on the fringe of the rain/snow mix, but we got mostly snow. Thankfully :nod:
    06HD BOSS, I agree BOSS I'm ready for the wam weather too. I have about 55 trees and shrubs I'd like to get planted...

    Chase, Doesn't it stink to be out of the game due to break downs! I had a broken axle shaft during the Jan 1st and 2nd storms....

    TLS, I agree I love the look of trees with ice and snow hanging from them, just beautiful! ussmileyflag
