    Alpine,

    How many trucks do you have? What are your main contracts?

    I have two trucks, people tend to go crazy over here..

    Its lots of sidewalks, small driving areas, stairs, entrances to stores, etc..

    Not a lot of parking lots, so the plow is useless.. We use a lot of shovels and the snow blowers, ..

    My main contracts are with apartment buildings, office buildings and a village!

    Ahhh lots of pricey handwork!!! (I hate handwork!)

    Which end of the country do you work out of?

    I billed out a little under $4k for the last two weeks of December, working by myself...

    My total was close to $17 000.00 way to much fun, salting seems to be the thing that really makes the money. this year in an average day of salting i am putting down two skids of salt. lots of bags to open but my new snowex 6000 salter makes quick work of spreading it.

    Have you thought about purchasing a spreader that will handle bulk salt or do you not have access to it? Bulk salt is about 1/2 price.

    The salt that i am purchasing is at a good price, i have looked into bulk, at this time i dont have the storage facility to handle the quantities that i would get in. I currently purchase sifto salt in 40kg bags for $4.10 per bag. My spreader would be able to handle bulk salt, I looked into buying it in totes at the start of the year but was told of to many stories of it hardening in the totes. last year i went through 24 skids of salt and so far this year i am 16 skids.

    Its too cold here at the moment. Good part, ground is frozen again, bad part, no snow. Maybe later.

    We went from 15 above to 15 below over night. This weather is screwy.

    There is not a place close by where you can buy it by the ton. Here we pay $70/tonne(2200lbs). You are paying $102.50.

    Your snow is heading to the interior tonight, we're supposed to get about 2 inches or more, however its -25 celcius right now. :confused: I had a heck of a time getting things started today. Right now everything is loaded with sand, plugged in and ready to roll. This will be our fifth event of this month. Last January was 7 times and its only the middle of the month so we should be seeing some good revenue coming in at the end of the month as well. Sure is strange to see that much snow in Vancouver, usually it snows and melts the next day. Good luck alpine, I was looking at the radar and it should be snowing over there right now. payup
