    Greenwich ended up with 25" or so depending on what part. Drifts were around a few feet in some areas and it was hard plowing at times.

    I went out at 10am and did all my driveways, got home at 1pm and went out again at 2pm. I pulled out my friends bronco and a suburban from a driveway.

    I did a parking lot after my friend finished his driveway he was stuck in and then did the residentials.


    How did everyone else make out? The only problem i had was the recoil on my snowblower is frozen, so i had to shovel a neighbors sidewalk instead of snowblowing it.



    Here's some pictures from the storm. This is the towns bombardier sidewalk plow having a little trouble in the snow.

    Got Snow? This is my neighbor, they never got the concept of parking the cars on one side of the driveway before a snow storm.

    Come on guys lets see those pics and piles!

    here's the scond pic, as you can see it is resting on the gas tank and the salter/frame in the rear. Looks like a water main had ruptured and hollowed out the ground under him. They ended up using a semi-wrecker to lift him out, it was quite a show, I watched for about 10 minutes, but had more work to do.

    The spinner and under bed salter was pretty mangled (13 tons of truck sitting on it can do that I suppose) and i think he snapped the driveshaft. I'll try to find out more info when I run into my friend at the PW Dept again...

    Hey guys, you better get it done. Weather people now saying rain is coming with a slight warm up which they are saying you will have all the snow turn to ice. Go figure!

    Hope you are all unstuck, plow still going up, down and side to side, plenty of gas in the trucks, coffee in the cup and all that cash rolling in now! ;)

    Ok, Stamford, unofficially got 28" of snow according to our local forecaster.

    I was so freakin' busy between the Hospital and my own jobs I didn't have time to take pics during the storm. I did take some pics this morning of the piles and lots as of this morning. I will post them when I get home this afternoon.


    Losta transfer case last night, so prety P.O.'ed about that, but hey that stuff happens in a storm like this.

    Well, I am now planning our haulaway operations for tonnight and possibly tomorrow night (I will definitely be taking pics of that operation as well)

    I also have to plan on removing snow from two flat roofs at the hospital, so its really gonna be a long week. will post pics as soon as I can.
