    This section of parking was left untouched,as all we were doing is trying to open aisles and laneways in the morning.We returned about 7 PM that night to find it was like solid ice.

    The Snoways,with the downpressure system engaged,did a better job peeling it up.

    Loaders were a big help,but even they had a tough time getting down to the pavement.The bucket would have peeled it up no problem.

    I think that this storm was the hardest plow I have had to do in a long time. Even the bucket on my loader had a hard time scraping up this mess. We had presalted a few areas and they cleaned up easily but it sure left big piles of ice that were hard to push back. Glad this one was at the end of the season and not the beginning
