    Was out plowing around 12:30 pm and then again at 8 o'clock and just got done, and have to go back out in the morning. Just thought I'd take a few pics of the truck.

    I heard on the news you guys are getting pounded. I saw a 50 car pile up in Grand Rapids with white out conditions. Be safe out there. Nice pictures keep them coming.

    I'll try and take more tomorrow morning.
    Yeah there were accidents all over the place. The neighbor and I took a ride to the RV show, and the roads were about 40MPH, and it wasn't good. I plowed 2 times today, and will have to in the morning. So I'm making a little bit of money.

    I doubt 3 inches per hour, it may have seemed like 3 inches an hour because the wind was blowing like crazy.

    Went out this morning, I programed my alarm for 5:30, but forgot to set it, I herd the city plows go by at 6:15, so I woke up and quick left the drive at 6:30, and stayed out just long enough so I didn't have to go to church, so I needed more time, so I decided to go do my girl friends and uncles over in dorr just for S&G's.
    P.S. In the second picture, the snow is going down hill about a 4 foot drop at about a 70 degree slope.

    Great pic's.
    We got around 6" up here, had everyone plowed last night now I see we had some drifting last night so you know where I'll be headed soon.

    Yeah , if the truck were to go down it, it would flip, it only a vertical drop of 4 feet, but it's steep. It's about the angle of a slash like this /. That driveway marker is where it starts going down hill.

    I didn't really believe it either, but that's what they said on the weather channel. That doesn't mean it was right though.

    The weather channel is in atlanta, I doubt it was right. But as long as we got 2 inches, then I was happy, but plowed 3 times, so I'm rolling in the money.

    Nice pictures, I am hoping I can at least get one more good storm to put the plow on my truck...

    I took my plow off after I got done this morning, so I'm thinking we may get some more snow.

    Well we got a trace of snow, and thats it, So I think I'll take the flashers down and go wash the truck and see what that brings me:salute:
    Only I have to wait till I'm done with school first, 3 classes 2 times a week is rough let me tell you, then a night class thursdays, and sit on the computer the other days. I'm ready for retirement.
