    Beat the s*** out of your equipment is what you'd do with three feet of snow at once!

    I hope Grandview has a blizzard clause in his seasonal contracts. Good Luck/ Stay safe.

    No kidding. Talk about the customer coming out on the winning end if he doesn't.

    All our contracts, seasonal and per push have blizzard clauses, as well as temperature clauses for sidewalks.

    Latest weather report at 11pm (Tues) mentioned reports of 60" from a few weather spotters and it was still snowing. This was south to south east of Buffalo. Now North of Buffalo had reports of 2 - 3in tops. That wave, or snow-gun as they call it, was that intense and well defined.

    Tug Hill plateau area (east of Lake Ontario and near Adirondack mnts) are also getting hit hard, but I haven't seen their totals yet.

    Numerous pictures from some friends and meteorologists from those areas are floating around FB and other areas. A few show an open door with snow like 3/4 of the way up and one going to the top with the imprint of the door in the snow. Oh, and the dog looking puzzled at how to get out. : ) There are also some videos from just beyond the storm showing how little snow they were getting and how strong the storm was in the background.

    Doesn't he plow with pickups? I have never seen any post where he said he has a loader. I bet he is hating life right now.
