    Yeah, I thought of that as I was posting it, but I figured they would get on here sooner or later........honestly......I plow for a my boss during my winter break......and I don't think he would want to have to deal with that much snow no matter how much money he could make.......just think of the wear and tear on those trucks right now....

    If they can't handle it or don't like it they should send it up north here where it belongs. We got nothing. 40 hrs. so far this season. I'm depressed. Should be out pushing.

    Yes Parish NY got 78" in 2 days, on top of 100+inches or so allready on ground, up here in Lake effect country it is not unusual ,in fact up here on Tug Hill is rather common. We deal with it with V plows, loaders, blowers and just trying to not let it get ahead of you, but at a rate of6" per hour that can be tough. We plow early in the year knowing whats coming later and leave room.

    You got to keep ahead of the snow. Plow it when it reaches 4" and just keep going back to clean it up. I have been "posted "in large parking lots and just plowed it till it stopped snowing. This is where the big money comes from the 24 + hr's at the wheel.
