    Was watching the weather this morning and heard that Kansas and Nebraska could be under a foot of snow come morning...with Blizzard warnings out. I wish i was there but at the same time i didn't because im no where near ready for anything like that....plus we have a couple jobs to get done before the white stuff starts flyin

    I've been through a few Blizzards and they suck! Can't see ,can't plow they leave drifts everywhere .Nothing is better then a few 2-4 inch snows ,enough to plow and make money .

    speak for yourself, I love plowing in a blizzard. The only cars on the road are stupid mf'ers and they end up in the ditch anyway.

    No traffic!!!!!!! :)

    Maybe it's good that I didn't take a box for our friend to Lincoln, NE tonight.

    Don't worry Mark .... We'll get our first dusting Sun/Mon which hopefully will shake the contract hold outs. Then I'm thinking our first plow will be before thanksgiving.

    Oh, it will be, but I think for the time being, at least thru mid-Nov., I'm going to use the other truck, since the Blizzard is still under warranty. Just as it got dark this afternoon, the snowfall kinda quit, but we're supposed to get up to 10" more during the night. We had about 4"-5" when I took this photo before, and I've had a bunch of calls for plowing tomorrow after it's over, so if we get a foot or more, I'll be making piles for the next few days,...
