    Leave your trucks at home, they are useless. The walls along the roads are 10-16' tall before you even find the lot or driveway that has anywhere from 48-120" of snow, drifts, ice pack underneath.

    Keith - was wondering how you were making out. We were talking at the shop this morning about how to handle something of that magnitude. You have a couple connections though - right?

    I'd think the only way would be loaders or big blowers.

    I'm curious as to what kind of provisions are in your contracts for this? Act of GOD / Force Majure? I mean I'm sure that the state has closed the roads down to "non essential" vehicles which would indemnify, but I'm curious to how it's worded, and "the when" you go back to contract as written.

    Just giving you a hard time man, no offense. In all honesty that thing looks like it would be fun as hell to run for a while

    We have TL 10's with blowers that we could send up to help if somebody can point us in the right direction?

    I'm fine, all my accounts are north of the i-90. We only had a foot at some of our accounts this morning, others a few inches.
    I've been to the war zone trying get people some fuel and other things today. It's as bad if not worse now than Tuesday. Easily another 24" and still coming down. Blowers are getting it done, slowly but surely.
