    Well this is my first year in plowing and we finally got hit with out first big winter storm here in kansas a couple days ago. was about 1-1.5 inches of ice then 8-10 inches of snow on top payup . just thought i would show some respect to all those out there plowin cuz its not as easy as it looks. the good news is, i really enjoyed doin it. we were up from 11 pm wed. night to about 8 pm friday plowing. snuck in about 3 hours of total sleep in that time frame. anyway, here is to the plow men, :drinkup: :drinkup: :drinkup:

    It gets to be addicting. Wait till you start dreaming about it after a long week of doing battle with Mother Nature. Then you wake up and want to go plow something !

    I dreampt last night I raised my plow so high going down the road I couldnt see the road.

    I need it to snow before I lose my mind.

    I'm in the same boat. I got my feet wet for the first time the other day. Like you said, it's not as easy as it looks. I tip my hat to all the seasoned pros here and yeah, I'm hooked. It's worse than crack, or so I've heard. Can't wait for the next storm.

    we got like a1/4 inch of snow last night, and it all blew up into a little drift in front of the door about 1/2 inch deep, so I got the 930G out and pushed it up this afternoon, it made a pile about 8 inches high, I was pretty excited about it! LOL

    That was great!
    I know I cant wait to have snow forecasts for the next day, so I can get no sleep looking forward to snow and watching the weather channel, calling all my guys.... and all to stay up for 48 more hrs.
    It is addicting but I wouldn't trade it for anything.

    i live in maryville (about 100 miles north of downtown kc). i own/operate a small roofing company up here. i'll be honest i hope we don't get any snow at all, we are so busy with roofs right now. it pays the bills much better and i get done at 5 pm every day.
