    to a point sure, but real numbers are good to know as well.

    I would love to storm chase one day if we had bigger equipment, but unless it paid amazingly well, I just don't think it would be worth the risk.

    It took you three days to clear the parking lot? How huge are we talking here?

    The Church sits on 160 acres and the building is 205,000 sq. ft. The paking lot is divided alphabeticaly A - E. There are four or five police officers working traffic details for Sunday services! Parking area is larger than a mall parking lot! Three days is quick work with three to four feet on the ground!

    There is over **30 acres** of Parking lots at this location. Additionally, there are multiple perimeter roads, sidewalks and other obstacles to deal with. It was a great task and a great group of guys. The snow had to moved to certain specific places to minimize the impact of loss of spaces due to the huge volume of snow. An enormous task, but completed and well done. Thanks to Rob and Gary, it was great meeting you guys. Nice job. You guys run a great business, and have a solid work ethic. You should be proud of yourselves, considering the huge amount of snow and multiple locations. Look forward to hooking up with you guys again.

    Not trying to bust your bubble....but from the pics you have on this post it looks like only 6 to 8" of snow on the ground......did it snow more while you were there ? Did you spend 3 days there or work like 12 -14 hrs for 3 days ?

    Just curious is all..........

    More Pics of Our trip

    1st stop of the night during the Blizzard. A long trip from Rochester, but met up with some really great people. We'd go back to work with them anytime. The blurry pics are due to the wind whipped snow!
