    The winter of 09-10 has been one of the best in my young lifetime. We had close to 72 inches for the winter and our avg is 28. The things i learned this winter will def help me as a move forward and look to have my own operation next winter. My truck was set-up for a winter like this, and it did not disappoint. I learned from this site how to properly set it up. From weight in the back....to having a good tires for plowing. I really think strobes and a amber light are a must. When its snowing 2-3 inches a hour it great that people can see the lights. My fisher def was up for the task and had no problems with it. Also no breakdowns with my truck. I always wanted a winter like this, and now that i sit here and think about it, it seems unreal. Running out of room for snow and relocating was something very new to me this winter, but now i feel like i mastered it. lol

    I want to say many thanks to the great friends i gained from this site....first B&B for taking the time to help me with my over heating issue.....told me where to go for a new clutch fan....and pretty much walk me through the whole process...and saved me a few hundred dollars. After the new clutch fan...not one more problem the rest of the winter. Thanks mike for all the help.

    Stroker79(doug) i talk to you more then i talk to some of my friends here in jersey...helping me me with my truck set-up and just shooting the breeze on the phone. When i planed to go to chicago for a snowstorm you open to door to ur home so i could stay...very cool man. Even though you are out of plowing....i know we will still continue to talk and wish u the best doug...and thanks again for the light bar.

    The Chicago guys.....BNC...vaughshultz.....erkholar......colin....t-man...reaper....scottl...mark13 thanks for showing me how to handler a busy snow year and have fun with it........so many text and phone calls back and forth about snowstorms and plowing.....loved how we sent pics of plowing during each storm.......you guys are def great people....thanks for even let me forecast for you.....and not busting on me when im wrong...lol

    Basher i still will never forget when we spent about 4 hours on a cold windy November day...just talking snow....the knowledge i came away with that day was great...and how you pm me just to ask how i was doing and how the winter is...thanks again....hope you had a great winter.

    The new jersey crew....mkwl....icey.....dirtyjersey....s&mll....prizepup.....blk...highlander....lab inc we finally had a great winter...after all the snow-less winter we have been through...what a great run and thanks for offering to help me out when i was down a truck...very cool of you guys...have a great spring...and cant wait for next winter.

    Nickplowing.....it was great hearing from you during the snowstorms...you guys got alot more snow then i did.,....but you killed it. Thanks for the snow pics of what was coming....and how to attack the storm

    grandview what can i say? we bust on eachother alot....but you have def gave me great advise over the phone.....and calling me many times this winter asking me are you tired of it yet? lol...always great to hear from you....hope all is well....and love hearing ur snow plowing stories.

    One of the coolest things this winter was when i got a phone call from JD dave.....he was just asking me how everything was with all the snow and hope all was well.....i thought that was real cool....this big snow removal guy from canada...asking how i was doing......thanks again dave...have a great spring.

    The Iowa crew also for the advise they gave me the last few years...crete...hydro...duca.
    Thanks guys.

    camden, marko, toby....always great to read your post...they are very informative and also taking the time out to answer my questions.

    Almost forgot the ohio crew clapper...steve....and all of the great guys in that thread...thanks again.

    Oh and many thanks to cre and goldpro for always making me laugh when i read this site...good stuff guys.

    Thanks plowsite for everything :drinkup: Im sorry if i missed a few guys.....hope everyone has a great spring and summer....see you next winter when its time to scrape the pavement.

    Back In my day we had to use horses! And attached a plow to the back of them, doing the large parking lots took days!
    Why I remebr back in 1978 we had a blizzard that shutdown the eastern part of the country!

    The areas I plow in get lots of Lake Effect.
    We need to cut Canada off.
    98% of my work is on contracts, so I don't want the snow.
