    Well what I have got in the past from whomever I plow for is..

    They make sure I know the route before the 1st snow. Most times either we take a drive together noting things such as rocks or cracks and snow placement. He also carries a few stakes with him in case a edge needs to be marked or hydrant or something.

    Over the years I have my own sheet i fill out. At the top is my name and address with a starting time. I also use this to fax to whomever is paying the bills.

    I have a blank copied as a text file on my computer and I type in the names of each place in columns along the left side including address and town. Then I print out about 50(hoping their will be that many events).

    Then at the top over each row I have time in - time out. Depth of snow. Then I have a small box next to each row for comments on that lot. I note if there were cars blocking x amount of spaces or whatever is out of the ordinary. At the end of the page I also leave extra room for additional comments if i need extra space.

    I always make sure I go to each place before it snows though and find this small thing to be one of the most important of all. I also have learned in the last 5 years to always have a camera with me when I go out. Even if it is one of those throwaways.
