    Well the lake effect storm that was supposed to be an 18" storm was a total flop... ie: only about 8" total, but my guys and I did get out to plow so I really can't complain too much.

    Here are some pictures and a terrible video (I don't know how anyone gets non shaky plowing vids)

    Its hard to tell from the photo, but the second oune is my "crazy curved driveway" If I were to slide off the right side towards the top, I would most likely roll the truck

    Well that's better than what we got out in Buffalo. We only got a trace to an inch at some of our locations. I had to settle for shoveling the sidewalk while making vroom vroom noises!

    Only a couple inches in Watertown. Hardly worth the effort of putting the plow blade on.

    Thanks for pics. I'll take anything to look at. Not a snowflake to be seen in Iowa.

    Nothing like the news hyping everyone up for a big storm. Onondaga hill to Camillus only got 5-7". We were expecting up to a foot. Kinda lame storm.
    Looks like no snow for the next week also. Bummer.

    i was in dewitt plowing err, i mean scraping pavement, how fricken boring, i plowed my lots 6 times for a total of 9 hours, i would sit in the loader and let another '' fall and go back and scrape that up, all the other crews in the area started at their normal time,

    i was up at 6 am the daybefore so i was pretty sleepy when it started again at 8 am and the lots were filling up.

    heres the part that pissed me off i left snow falling to go to a place where it wasn't then at 6 they closed our schools. got to love cny

    i have more time on my atv doing mine and my neighbors than i do in my loader,on the plus side when i leave work i tell them i am going home to plow real snow hahahaha

    IPLOWSNO- I'm going to take wild guess and say that you work for pro-scapes?

    i know the feeling... watched weather all night, got up at 1:45, nothing fresh, got up at 3:30 had about 6+ inches in Jordan, ran around like a mad man to get stuff done, went to Skaneatles, they had nothing, ran to the city and only bout 2" on the ground... really would like a repeat of last winter...
