    Here are a few pics from the last storm.Tried to take a lot more pics of the propertiesin general,but they all turned out to dark to see.Will try again later.Here's what turned out for now.

    We had 8-10" of snow,just after last week's 12"+ dumping,piles are getting pretty big.

    Here is a shot of my truck piling snow,from the cab.

    Other side of shipping area.

    You can see how dark the pics came out,even after I fixed them,the other 50 or so pics I took all came out too dark.

    Shot of controls in cab for plow,salter,lights,and cell phones.The little cig lighter mounted neon light cast a dull light on all the controls.Great for the salter dial as it is not backlit.

    Gettin in close,the one drawback to a long wheel base truck is turning radius.

    Everything is wired up separately with big wire and relays.The headlamps are wired through two DRL,or daytime running light modules.One for normal high beam DRL,when driving on the roads during the day and the plow is off.The other gives me low beams at about 50% brilliancy to gently light up the backside of the plow and the front of the truck.Great for hooking up the plow too,without bright lights shining in your eyes

    I have two mounted in the truck,and usually one on me.One is a permanent 4 watt analog,for bad reception areas and has an awesome hands free.Then I have my main bus cell,and my personal cell as backup,or one of the guys needs a spare.We have two ways,laptops and Pocket PC's as well.I just need another 4 arms to work it all and plow at the same time. :D
