    Got the job through a friend who is a private contractor that runs a truck for the state. They called for the loader so I went as the operator. Spent three days running it. I had a few videos that the snow covered the lense quickly. Snow slowed down enough to keep it off the lense of the camera.

    This one shows just how slow each job went. Plow, plow, plow for 15 minutes and you can just begin to see a good size clearing in the middle of a lot that is usually done 5 minutes ago. And you still have the monster piles to push back or move the next day...

    No matter how much i tried to keep up it built up so quickly that it was impossible. The best thing i did was buy a set of chains for 150bucks. I never got stuck the whole storm. Probably wont use them again for awhile but im glad I had them

    CT Blowers

    we ran 2 blowers on 95 and 1 on 91 it was a long week but worth it here are a couple pics we have a ton of video but cant figure out how to post that I have to say everyone up there was awesome to deal with even the local snow guys were welcoming and we were very impressed how well the private parking lots looked compared to the roads

    few videos on twitter @topdogservice toddblower.jpg

    I saw a blower working rt 8 the same as ours. I just stopped and watched how much snow it could move. That unit said city of buffalo.I also saw 2cat 928 loaders with blowers from upstate NY blowing back RT 1 in orange ct. It was interesting to see how unprepeared we are to handle 4' snowfalls I heard one DPW director is going to loss his job over his crews handling or lack of during the storm. Three days after the storm he had not plowed 50 percent of his roads and the other half were maybe one lane at best. In a small town with open roads and no cars parked along them!

    You weren't involved in the broken houses windows.collapsed sheds and pool damage from blowing snow over the sound barrier were you? As the story goes someone did extensive damage to homes blowing snow over a sound barrier.

    Glad to hear that. There was no mention of what blower did it. The cost of damage is over 150k plus and is expected to be way over that.
