    Hello Everyone,

    I know that the site has had its slow moments, and we genuinely apologize for that. Fact is, the traffic and use of PlowSite.com has been overwhelming to the point where our server right now just can't handle it.

    So it is time to upgrade to a bigger and faster and more capable machine. This will take a little bit of time but I assure you, we are on it.

    Thanks for your patience and thanks for making PlowSite.com the most active snow & ice professional site in existence!

    Any future plans to add "CHAT" to this site?

    Why all the google ads all over the place between posts? Wouldn't that be adding to the server problem? It feels cluttered up in here. :) Next thing ya know, we'll be dealing with pop ups all over the site. YUKE, I think you need to ditch the ads all over the place and put them in one place. .02 thanks

    Also, I've noticed that every time I make a post, it acts like it didn't load and says done at the bottom even though it's trying to load my post. If I close the window and re-open, it shows the post. If I make a post, it doesn't want to take me to it rather just shows a blank page. Kinda weird, it just started doing this today.

    Dragging this one back up :dizzy:

    Starting to get busy around here again. Last night, I couldn't get on here to save my life. The upper ad for the sectional snowplow would come up, but nothing after that for several minutes. Tried a few times, but no luck.

    Heavy traffic ahead...
