    Rough Night!

    Well, they got part of it right! We had the rain change to snow, about 4" worth in an hour's time,along with thunder and lightning, then change back to rain, which compressed the snow to two inches. Then it changed back to snow for another inch with some sleet mixed in.

    This stuff was tough pushing! Wouldn't roll off the blade, slicker than... well you get the idea. I had a pile build up in front of me that pushed the truck off the drive I was plowing, took about 10 minutes to get unstuck. My route took about 4 hours longer than normal to complete due to difficult conditions.

    More on the way for Saturday!

    Rest up!:sleeping: :sleeping:

    We had a nice little 4" snow yesterday. Enough to plow them all, but pushed nice. I hate waking up to heavy snow and this one started about 3:30, didn't start out plowing until 9:00. No traffic to speak of. Picked up two more accounts right off the drive of an existing account. Two more in the works.

    Sometimes things just go right. If we get more Saturday like we're supposed to, should be a repeat of yesterday. Nobody needing to get out for work.
