    Can anyone help me compile a list for resi-customers to prep'?
    e.g.

    1. Move your cars people!
    2. If possible, and not done, mark the perimeter
    3. Tell the plower where to put the snow

    ... Anything else folks can help me with?

    You should mark the property and you should ask them and have a line in your contract as to where it goes.

    I have never plowed up an extension cord but, my Dad has a hard time remembering to pull the pipe out of the side of the house that goes to the sump pump. :realmad: I have hit that a few times it doesn't do any damage to the house or pump but it put a few holes in the pipe.

    Try to be a little understanding and realize that you are not our only customer, and that we want to make you happy with our service. When it starts snowing at 4 am your drive may not be done by 7 sorry.

    Or a garden hose! I once had a firehouse run a garden hose across the road to a drain. I come along to plow and BAM I ripped the hose right off the hookup. I had no idea it happened until I came back around for my second pass and all the firefighters were standing outside looking things over and they flagged me down to tell me. When the hose got ripped off the hookup, which was inside the station, it made such a racket that it scared the sh*t out of them! :eek: :laughing:

    I want to leave this planet the way I entered it, being held upside down naked and spanked by a nurse.
