    Man, as far as I know the past three days Central and Northern Ny have been getting hit pretty good. I myself have plowed 10 hours a day the last 3 days, and will probably continue that schedule the next two days at least.
    Last night at 10pm it took me about an hour to drive what normally takes me 20 minutes, driving in 4x4. I couldn't see past the hood of my truck at all, could just barely see my plow. It was nuts. I've seen many cars off the road, cars abandoned on the side of the road, a few almost accidents, one SUV rolled over. And this is just the first snowfall of the year for us.
    I hope it keeps up! and I hope everyone stays safe.
    30 hours of plowing so far, and not a single problem or complaint, actually got quite a few compliments. I'm gonna put up some pictures here in a little while.

    Looking forward to seeing your pics! Yeah, CNY definitely seems to be getting their fair share of snow for the season. Weatherman says Sunday will bring a new system.

    Stay Safe!

    Our guys have been out for 3 days straight too. This is pretty unusual for before Christmas. The good thing was that other than 3 skid steers, everything was ready and we only had a few minor equipment issues. This coming Sunday and Monday could be interesting.

    BNB, Talked to you boss this past Saturday in our shop. He and I are both light junkies. He looked pretty good. I'm sure he's a wreck now!

    hahaha yeah Sean sure does like his lights. My truck has head and tailight strobes and a really bright LED beacon light, thing blinds me when I'm against buildings.

    Right now here the temp is 24 degrees, and that's cold enough for me, a minute outside and I can feel it through my bones.

    I just love the old K5 Blazers, especially when they have a Fisher Speedcaster plow on them. Would love to see more pics of it.

    Be careful what you wish for! It sounds like we all get in on the action Sunday and Monday.

    Is that white stuff the snow you guys are talking about?

    Our winter stinks this year. I have only been out once this year as opposed to six times at this point last year.

    Good luck guys and be safe. Make some money while you can!!
