    Never thought i would ever plow this early and see the amount of tree damage in my area. It was def worse then the hurricane. Really thought it was not going to be a big deal. When the rain change to snow 7 hours earlier then forcast, i knew we would be in for somthing interesting. Keep in mind i was cutting grass the day before and double cutting aloty of lawns......We are also having a very late fall here, so alot of leaves are still on the trees...ended up with 5 inches and lost power for 24 hrs.......glad i did not lose it for longer....

    Truck did great, plus my worn out tires seem not to be a problem with the slushy snow and warm ground temps. Blew a headlight out during the night and also a strobe....very annoying to plow with one headlight.....:rolleyes:

    The last time we got snow here on Halloween was in 1991 I believe... and it was a blizzard, I don't remember it cuz I was only 3 years old!

    Looks like mostly Pear trees took the damage. Not surprised as they tend to hold their leaves on the longest.

    Wouldn't be surprised if most of them were Bradford Pears.

    Awesome pictures Tim! Good to see you still have the Catena lots out there. Definitely a crazy storm with the cutoff line between rain and snow being right over the area. Did you happen to catch any of the state plowing? Kind of wondering what they used as I don't think many of the state contractors had their plow mounts put on for the season.
