    Should be fun. The first storm of the year was a killer with the wind. I am hoping this one isnt quite as bad. At least it is on a weekend.

    Bring it on. I love a good storm. It's about time NE WI sees a good push since Illinois hogged all the big ones this winter. HAHA. I just hope it's not as wet and hard as there talking. I don't like plow busters but i'll take it.

    I only plow my own place. But my son plows commercially he is sitting here with drool running down his face. And dollar signs in his eyes. He is an absolute snow nut, plowing, snowmobiling he lives for those two. Me I can take it or leave it, as I get older more toward the leave it end.
    Good luck to you guys and have a safe plowing event.

    Man, nothing I love more than shovelling wet, heavy snow around with hail/rain coming down on my ass. Needless to say a good time was not had.

    Officially we had 17.5" here at our airport I guess. I did end up with some 6' drifts in our lots. Wanted to get some pictures but that didn't work out during the storm or the mornings pushes. Oh well...I did get some pictures of our push backs with the 7430. I'll post them up soon.

    Wow, one more "Big one" coming Tuesday night/ Wed. 6"-10" of wet heavy snow is what I have been hearing. I just hope it's not like last weekend and fizzle out the day of.

    It's 6:30 am ,In Marshfield , extreme north end of Wood County , southern border of Marathon County , we have 2-3" right now , and it's still coming down. NWS figures it'll peak around 11:00 am , and I'm stuck I n my day job driving a wheelchair bus around the city ! GRRRRR ! In hindsight , the condition of my plow is scary . ( See my "New A-Frame Needed" thread in the Western discussion and you'll see what I mean ! :O
