    Just wanted to throw up a few pics of the early winter snow up here in Vermont.

    First is me plowing my way up the driveway past my barn. Snow's so deep that even with the plow vee'd it was coming up over the top some

    Second is me running out of room to put the snow in one of the small commercial lots I do opposite my college... my truck thinks it's a loader...:dizzy:

    Third is me trying to save some cash on advertising.:D

    Fourth is what some of the roads have been like so far this summer. Oh wait.. where is the road?... exactly. Let's hope for some more snow because the 50 degree weather is killing it all right now. Even the piles 7 feet high I've got are going fast :mad:

    I put up 4 foot 1x1 hardwood stakes with orange painted tops. As far as my own driveway I used up all my stakes at my customers homes and didn't get any in at my house. It sucks and when it's drifted straight across I just have to hope i'm on the driveway. Big pieces of grass flying off the side of the plow usually tell me to stop and try again.445, I'm based out of Charlotte and I plow in Charlotte, Shelburne, South Burlington and Burlington. The picture with the big pile is a lot opposite the hospital in burlington, the others are charlotte and south burlington.

    Sweet, I didnt think that nice long rin with the barn was in Burlington. Well good luck, we plow in the Waterbury/Stowe area. Holler if you ever need anything.

    could use some snow payup haha

    are you up the mountain enough to get a lot more plowing than most people down around burlington?

    edit: just found a pic of that part of my driveway in the summer. amazing how the seasons change things (was also before i put a few trees there)

    Well Stowe traditionally gets more snow than the chittenden county area, but yes I do have some accounts up on the hill, which tend to need more attention than others. And yes, regarding the seasons, I think Vermont has some of the craziest weather around, yesterday it was below zero and tomorrow its going to be 50+, go figure.
