    They are calling for 5-15cm (2-4 inches) between tues night and wed night around here depending on what station you listen to. Not much... but it's Dec 8th and we haven't had any yet!

    Bring it on!

    well... that was wild. Wet crap... and lots of it. Couldn't back drag, too sticky. Had to scrape it a bit at a time (and not just me, the new guy.... but everyone I talked to) the backdrag out. What a mess.

    Bedtime...

    I found it the same. Hard to back drag when it's that sloppy out. Was my first time out in my first season. Can't wait for the next one!!!

    In my 8 years of plowing I've never started the season with soooo much WET STICKY CRAP.
    I love plowing and will plow for a long time, with that said with that storm you had to be very carefull. Verry heavy and you cant see any banks or edges yet, making it verry possibel to hit a jut out and blow a line, remove large amounts of sod( I heard of one guy working for a town sub who plowed 8 front yards before realizing he was on the wrong side of the road, the side walk was on the other side of the street). And trying to stack that was just plain misserabel, you couldnt make large piles without worrie of breaking things.

    Love the snow, love the buissness, hated that storm. With that said, 46 houses done in 18 hours (40 phone calls with complaints) 65 industrial and resi condos in 12 hours (0 phone calls) and then 3 days wourth of spot cleaning, edge cleaning, spot salting and widening side walks. Not too worried future storms, resi guy was Brand new as was shoveling crew. All will improve and all the money makers are happy, future storms should be done in 8-10 hours.
