    Maybe we'll get to salt tonight...hopefully we get something to plow soon. I'll take the 1/2 inch though.

    A 1/4 inch at the most..pretty pathetic but the sleet/freezing rain made it slick enough, with a light dusting of snow on top, to salt. Now if only the new iceoway would work right consistently.

    i'm getting ready and trying to be optomstic but it's hard , we hire our own meteorologist and it seems he keeps backing off on snow amount...not sure what the weather channel is saying guess we'll see

    i forgot ........

    i forgot how to hook up a plow, its been so long since we've had snow.......WAIT I don't know where the plows are at ............haha

    Seriously though, if nothing else I hope we can get a decent plowable event. 10" and up would be really nice, it would weed out a lot of the really unprofessional guys around here and it would make next year nice....there would be more people willing to pay OUR price instead of THEIR price. Anyways we'll see how it goes. All the salt from last night, that is still on the lots will burn off some of it AND cause some calls about why do you need to presalt my lot.

    wow...what a storm,10 hours of snow, our meteorologist said that at one point( about 2:30 am) we got almost 2" in that hour. 37 hours straight to basically get done. finally got to plow w/ the skid steer and Boss/Kage . it's a cool piece . my skids are both single speed but can still out push a truck. i got to test drive a 2 speed new holland today , i don't know how fast all skids are but this was VERY impressive. i'm postive i could probably pretty easily out plow 2 trucks w/ the 2 speed. how'd the rest of you guys do?
