    Good to see another maritimer on plowsite. We are getting pounded right now with snow, so you guys must be getting hit across the straight. We are having an old fashion Atlantic Canadian winter this year eh? That JD is awsome, love the cab. Neck must get sore after all of the driveways eh? Let me know how you make out with are storm.

    Where in PEI are you? It sort of looks like the intersection in North River in the distance.

    Lots of snow is great for business.tymusic

    RDTek,

    How'd you make out with our latest storm. Looks like another one over night Thursday into Friday for Fredericton so it will probably hit you later Friday? Did you get any new pictures?

    All the storm warnings for Tuesday were way off here....we only got 6cm, but Wednesday when there were no storm warnings, we got 12cm and tons of wind. That wind is sure a pita for drifting in driveways.....did you guys get any snow out of that storm?.....we're expecting some snow/rain mix sometime Friday afternoon and ending through the night....should be sloppy stuff to move.......:cry:

    Yeah we got a good dump of snow here I would say in places 30cms plus and the wind wasn't bad here ( we haven't had a snow storm less then 20cm this winter yet) I saw video from the island on ATV with the blowing snow looked like hell. Yeah this storm coming is going to be a mess calling for 10 cms then 2-4 mm of rain. This will be fun to plow.

    We ended up getting 5cm and high winds.....some driveways were drifted in solid though....it changed to rain and really made a mess....by the end of my run, I was blowing more water than snow....hopefully we get a break now for a bit....:)
