    If you were heading out to plow a storm forecasted to be 6-8 inches and would be about an hour away from home considering snowy roads what would you bring? I like to carry spare clothes, boots, some tools since it's not a perfect world, a chain/ strap for pull outs. What other stuff do you bring along for peace of mind/ in can comfort? I forgot the most important thing. a huge thermos of coffee and lots of water.....

    Only 12?

    Beer should only come in 24 packs. If you can't afford 24 premium, go with one of the welfare beers like lucky, etc...

    my dog is just a lil guy, but I was thinking just a harness that goes around the body and attaching it behind the seat.

    But for the most part he comes out salting only because there is less smashing involved.

    He tells me the hours are killer when he plows and salts, he's such a complainer :p
