    Well, there's already 20 inches on the ground here with a further 6 or so to come. They've declared a state of emergency province wide. Plows just went back on the roads. It's nuts guys, wish us luck.

    I have been watching the news coverage and you guys are getting hammered. Take it easy out there and be safe, nobody needs to get anywhere so they can wait to get cleared out. We escaped it here in Fredericton, less than 1" on the ground.

    Don't expect to hear from you for awhile. You have your hands full with 32", (80cm) so far. If you need a hand, let me know...I still haven't had a chance to try any accumulations worthy of that 810 you sold me. It's a 4 hour drive to get there, but I love a challenge!

    Good Luck!

    We got 95 cm.=36 inches and drifting in high winds. State of emergency has been declared . It,s a circus here. Just got back from 24 hr push. one nap in there. Gotta sleep now and go back out. Not even half done.

    Renegade the 810 performed great. If you had of let me know I could have got you work. Every one is crying for bigger rigs.

    I hear ya. Ive been flagged down by more people then I can count and the phone hasn't stopped ringing. Have guys willing to pay $100.00/hr for the Bobcat. Good luck finding a backhoe or loader. Finally making some coin, gotta love it!

    The rear mount pull plow saved the day. All the plowers were stopping my son to ask where he got it. Looks good for next years sales. Couldn't do the drives without it including mine with my one ton Blizzard 810. Can't get into them to get started. It definitely passed this field test and will personally recommend one to anybody. That truck and plow may be for hire today if you know anybody that needs help. They will never regret getting one. Well good luck to ya and don't stay out too long without sleep.l:help: :)

    Yes, talk about the idiots and fools out there during this storm. There will be lots of story's from this.

    Bolts Glad to hear it's working for you. Could have used it myself. I'll keep my ears open for ya. How's Downsview Mall looking? That was one crazy amount of snow. Got about 7 hrs sleep in the last 3 days, not too bad. Take 'er easy.
