    Those look like two different cars in two different locations. The first one looks like a silver BMW coupe or convertible.

    You could have gotten alot of the snow plowed up to the BMW. But I would not have gotten really close either. Bill the customer for clean-up time where the car was sitting.

    The only way to get near the car you would have had to push the snow up on the sidewalk to the buildings. There was about 8 inches of snow on the ground and if you would have pushed the snow up there when someone parked in the spot they would have had to climb over the snow to get to the buildings. Also that lot is so narrow that I don't think you could have turn a truck with a plow on it to get beside the car.

    They are two different lots. The BMW was there early Saturday morning. The lot with the ford was done on Sunday.

    Plowing is done by the hour and salting is done by the pound. As warm as it was Saturday and Sunday that snow is probably melted. I am a Sub for this contractor, all his work is commercial and retail. We got 10 1/2 inches of snow that started on Friday and finished on Saturday morning, on all the commercial lots not one pound of salt was put down. I started one lot Saturday at 7 AM and by 10-11 AM the sun was out and by about 2 PM the asphalt was dry.

    looks like plenty of room by the beamer to move the snow. drive like your gonna bone it, turn out at the last min, backdrag what u cant get, then push out again... done

    just noticed, with the probe, if you look at the parking lines, its not just parked in that lot, its literally right in the middle of it

    That picture is a little confusing, there are only two parking spot on one side of the beamer and three on the other side, then curbs and landscaping.

    The contractor I sub for sent a guy by to check the lot on Saturday and the car was still there and he did not plow the parking spots. The owner of the company went by Sunday and the car was still there, the snow was not plowed. The shopping center call Monday morning to come and plow that parking area, the car was moved late Sunday some time. He sent a truck to do it. Spring time is close.:redbounce ::D
