    Hey guys, back for another winter! I woke up today to the first snowfall at my house and it was around 7" of heavy wet stuff. Its supposed to be close to 40 the rest of the week with another chance of snow this weekend, with that in mind i have not even thought about getting the plow on the truck yet..but its higher on my list now!

    Here is a few pics from today to start out my season, i'll get the F-250 and plow all ready to go here soon.

    People wouldn't expect you to clear that much snow?

    Have not been to Fairbanks since September 2013 when i went up to the Arctic Circle.

    This is a bad start to the season. It hurts the bank account

    Finally a little bit, hardly enough to plow but i did get out and do a few drives w/my truck over the weekend. Hopefully i can get some real plowing pics soon! supposed to get 4" overnight tonight.

    Today i hooked up the new 9'2" BOSS VXT on our company F-450 and pushed around the lot some..that was fun!

    Sold some DXT's i'm out of 8'2" but have plenty of 9'2"...with the way the weather is plow sales have dropped off.

    No improvement in the snow situation, the weather has been warm hovering around freezing to slightly above and freezing rain if anything. Outlook doesn't look good for the next two weeks or so is what the weather people are saying so here i wait...

    About a new truck I got a new daily driver, a 2011 F-150 Limited back in July.

    Today we went in search of snow for a new commercial shoot with the company F-450. Had to drive up to Hatchers Pass outside Palmer to find any snow but there was a little. If i can get ahold of the raw footage i'll post it up.

    It's terrible, no other way to put it. We are on the low end short 30" of snow so far this season.

    Over the weekend we had our heaviest snowfall....maybe 6" that's how bad it is.

    I plowed my personal driveway for the FIRST time on JANUARY 24th! this is the most insane winter i can remember. by this time of the year i should have 6ft tall by 10ft long piles!
