    Ok, I couldn't stand it anymore,... it started snowing again, and we may be close to 6" now,... so I put the Speedwing on the flat bed truck,... after all, how often does a person get a chance to plow in September? (Even in Alaska?)

    A winter-weather advisory has been issued for all roads in this part of Alaska now thru tonight, with up to a foot of snow in higher elevations, so I just may get some calls today or tomorrow already!! So, I decided to clean out my own driveway & test & see how the plows works,.. everything is just like it was when I quit last April... I started with a straight push right down the middle all the way out,...wesport

    Radio said about half the school buses were running very late today,.. if they didn't chain up, some couldn't even go,... many people weren't ready for this yet,....

    you lucky dog. Finally someone knocked GV off the top with a plowable snow before october! lol very nice, but it better hold off here for at least 8 more weeks. the leaves are just starting to change very slightly, and i just installed a new lawn, so pleeeaasee give me 8 more weeks of "decent" weather! Then ill take all the snow mother nature can throw at me!!!! :D

    Oh yeah,.. just didn't think I needed a V-plow yet,... :D,... although if it keeps snowing like it's dumping right now all day & all night, I might! I just wanted to run that Speedwing as much as I could last winter while it was on the dealer's nickel. We should have some great early winter scenes around here if it does stop & clear off, before it all melts again, so I'll snap a few if it happens,... prsport
