    Didn't get a lot of pics, because this storm was a beeoch to keep up with. Started flurrying around 12:45pm and by 1:15pm it picked up in intensity and there was a quick couple inches. Headed out around 3:30pm to get a jump on everything and by that time most accounts already had 4-6" on them...in under 3 hours! Snow finally wound down around 11pm. Making the 2nd round through everything untill 3am, some places that i hit a few hours earlier in the day had an additional 6" on them. Totals ranged anywhere from 9"-13". My backyard measured in at 9.5". I wish i got a pic of this ladies house where the street sidewalk was 25" deep...that was no fun. From 1pm till 7pm it was snowing so hard it was scarry to be on the roads. All in all it went good, no major problems, just a broken fence :rolleyes: (oops) and the lead wire came off my solenoid half way through the storm...that added 30mins to my schedule, no biggie.


    First pic is 5 mins after the flakes started flying
    2nd pic is 20 mins later
    3rd is looking out the backdoor 20 mins after the snow started

    This pic was taken about 2pm, in Kingston, Ontario. It started around noon here, and we went until shortly after 4am. The snow let up around 12:30am. The only casualty of the storm was one wiper blade that i broke trying to bang the ice off.

    sure was a mess around town during the hight of the storm! I was out around 3:30 also. The berlin turnpike was a mess. My day was a bit busy even though I only have 6 driveways to do. lol. started the storm off by testing out the new to me plow setup at my work's parking lot. Everything was going great unitll about 5:15 when I was on my way to home for a pitstop. Kept watching the engine temp go up and pulled into advanced autoparts to get some coolant justin case. For the past month i've had to add stop leak twice because of a minor leak. I had a plans to replace the radiator this coming tuesday. lol. Walk back out to the truck to see steam coming from the area thats had the leak and the truck is just gushing coolant. Luckily Advance had a new radiator in stock, no one else did in the surronding towns. So let the engine cool off, fill it up with coolant and get home at 6 . Got the new radiator in and was back out plowing by 8pm. Sure was nice working on my truck when it was 20f outside and dark.. lol
    got home around 11:30 after helping a few people out, slept for 3 hours and was back out by 5am helping the boss clear the lot and finshing up.

    I;m not complaining though. Got to plow with my own truck for the first time and loved every second of it. Didnt get to use the video camera like a planned. I was going to try and make a video of me an my boss using our fishers and send it in to the contest.
