    I was thinking the same thing. Looks good.

    The picture for the office would be nice, I would prefer summer though. :D

    Do you use 2 way radios to communicate with everyone? not a bad idea.

    Looks like you had the same exact weather we did this week. pretty good way to start the winter.

    Yes just bought a bunch of midland radios, very very helpful for equipment operators and it's good for safety. For example a person may be walking near a Skidsteer and I can radio the operator to look over his shoulder

    What size pusher on the backhoe? How do you like that setup, and how does it push on these bigger storms?

    I would like to add one later this season, or next fall.
