    good luck on towing it Mark!

    Although Vanderbos said most homeowners are understanding of this rough winter and willing to pay the added fee to have the snow towed away, there are some private plow truck drivers who don’t have the means to tow it away, which means they might start to lose some business

    Mark O looked taller in person. What a great ad for having your drives done with a tractor blower combo. No issues then for haviing to pay more to haul it away.

    Says the man from Mass..........:laughing:

    You'd think if you're going to be taped for TV you'd drag a comb through your hair, talk about bed head.

    We've already been to most residentials last week pushing back piles and stacking the snow for new plowing work for upcoming storms, with one of our tractor loaders. We will bill each customer for the time spent on their property in performing this extra service. It's been several years since we last did this service. It makes up for the last two lean years, of plowing.
    In all the years I've been plowing, (40 years +) I've never had to load and truck away snow from residentials, even in 1999-2000 when over 7' of snow fell between Christmas and New Years Day, in the Buffalo, NY area.

    Finally getting back to this one.

    Says the guy who has the letter "R" on his keyboard but can't pronounce it when speaking.

    My thoughts exactly. Wonder if I can get a copy from the news.

    You have to understand Belinda. Trying to be diplomatic here, but let's just say that according to one of my former employees who worked with her, certain female personal grooming habits go by the wayside for Belinda during the winter.

    Or maybe I could put it this way: she saves a lot of money on shaving products during the colder months. So a comb would also be a waste

    It's funny though, I've been to many areas in this country, and the only people I have a hahd time undestanding is the fine folk from the northeast. Southern folk are just fine, and I really don't notice much of a difference among the Midwest all the way Kalifornia, but those folks from about Joisey on up....................................;) :rolleyes:

    Same Problem in Cleveland Ohio

    Well was out cleaning some high rise condo complexes that are right along the lake shore and whenever we have a bad winter this area of town gets pretty bad with piles at the end of parking lots and drives getting too tall along streets. There are a lot of underground parking ramps and pulling out to the street is quite dangerous. I knock them down as good as possible but with cars in the street due to not having a no parking ban because of the high population of people it is tough. I don't like working their during the day since it is an accident waiting to happen. Plus property owners dont want to pay for removal.

    How much they pay you to plow dry pavement?

    I knew someone would bring that up Thumbs Up. I was trying to clean up in front of my condos on the street so when the city trucks come by they don't push it back in since they are all in row it makes it alot easier then property managers calling me to come clean up aprons later in the day. The camera was halfway out in the street and had to go around.
