    As we close out another season, I wanted to reflect on a hard fought winter and was cruising through my photos and saw a couple of nice photos symbolic of what we went through. I never seem to have any photos of when it was bad and heavy, (too busy pushing snow then I guess) but at least I got a full plow of snow to take a few. It sucked at this place when we got close to 2'....

    Raising a toast to all the other snow pros out there :drinkup:

    Is that a metal pless blade? If so how did it perform.

    Yes it is a 2008 10-16 metal pless. Didn't get a lot of time on it, but once I replaced the cutting edge (bought it used) it worked well. I like the live edges on the wings.

    Darn right! I'm used to 2 cab lights and 2 hood lights, it was almost blinding to have them all on at once :dizzy:

    A couple more when we were in the thick of it. One of the first winters I can remember using a mini to help clean up snow.... But worked great for breaking up the piles to haul away and pull snow off delicate lawn areas.

    Great stuff! Those piles must be pretty packed and dense when you haul them away after blowing them up with the blower.

    Yes, you better believe it! This was the first year since we got that account that we hauled any away. We took over 100 truck loads out of that pile, and only got about 1/3 of the way into it. Used the 4 ton mini to claw at the pile and break it up into snow bucket sized chunks.

    Normally we avoid hauling because we blow it up into the pile, but not this year. By the end of March, we had just about filled that area back up after hauling away in the middle of February.

    So you figure be because you're heading into winter and on the off chance you'd get accumulating snow at 65* F you'd join plowsite?

    Well its like this,

    I subscribed to a climate change forum and this bloke called Gore or something said the climate was really changing

    So rather sit back on my hands and watch my feet turn blue, and my toes drop off. I thought I would be proactive and be prepared...so here I am so look out North 'Murkins

    Just yesterday I went swimming, a cold curent was pouring onto my coast and the water temp was just below 24*C

    I said to my little Finish friend that it was too cold to swim, she just laughed and said as she dived in.. "this aint cold you nong"

    So that's the theory

    ....and they are awesome pics at the top of this thread, I'd love to see something like that one day, but only for one day!

    Your Finnish friend is correct. 75* water is not cold. It isn't even cool.

    Took the family to Sea World's Discovery Cove several years back. As we were getting prepped\instructed the employees asked where everybody was from, etc. We said Michigan and they said "everybody else is going to be cold, but you folks will be fine with the 67* water the dolphins are in."

    She was right.
