    I think there used to be one of these threads floating around awhile ago, but I figured I'd make a new one. I just got my last plow working properly today so I am pretty much ready for the flakes to fly. Let it snow!!!

    It should be going on later this week after I get the truck inspected and high mounted brake lights put on. Then the spreader is getting mounted and I'm taking the truck to the hydraulic shop for all new lines, couplers, and to look the whole system over for anything that may become a problem later down the road.

    i just finally got the new floor boards welded in. Its so nice to not have to worry about dropping things and watching them fall through the floor. :)

    Here is the truck that I'm putting the spreader on guys.

    Plow is ready, although I'm still working on a few extras for the truck ~ automatic chains would be nice!

    I finally got to plow today for the first time of the year. It felt good to drop the blade for the first time. I was really getting tired of salting and salting and salting......

    so what does everyone think for tomorrow? They are saying 1-2" accumulating over time here, spread out throughout the day. If there is any accumulation, I'm guessing probably won't be out working till at night. That's nice though, most of my places are closed then, no cars.

    In my area they are calling for 1-2" of snow and sleet tomorrow evening - night. I'll wait and see because the weathermen have not been right once yet this year. According to their forecasts, we should have had 8-14" of snow total by now. Instead we have had maybe 2-3", thats it.

    deere615 - You're the first one that has ever mentioned anything to me about it. I kinda forgot about it to be honest.

    I don't know ~ I put the plow back on the other day because it looked promising (and also the forecast called for sunny & clear conditions and I was looking out the window at near-white out conditions with solid accumulation) ~ so naturally the snow stopped.

    I'll be taking the plow off tomorrow morning so I can run to a meeting on a potential project, so it will probably snow just enough to convince me to hook the plow back on. At that time, it will grind to a halt... :cry:
