    Have fun and be safe if you are able to go out and plow. Just going to rain here with a snow shower possible late tonight or early morning.

    Snow?

    Up at 5 am...got all excited...hooked up the plow...drank some coffee...went and did a dry run 20 miles away...and all I got was 10 inches of snow that never stuck and a major case of depression. (along with knocking the damn cover off my relays when unplugging my unit!) :cry:

    How could you get 10 inches of snow with none of it sticking? You must have time to plow some of it... :confused:

    I would of scraped that and I'm not kidding (for roads and lots), but for driveways, I'd salt / sand mix! Sidewalks - I plow.

    None stuck? Must suck.

    I haven't even had any plowable snow up here in NH yet. :cry:

    What is wrong with this picture? Snow in Missouri and rain with predicted 60 degree temps for tomorrow in Maine! :(

    LOL! Yeah I guess we do that from time to time. Our ground is pretty frozen up here, if it snows...it'll be here for awhile.

  14. Its 12:45 and I just got home!!!

    Unbeleiveable, we got around 5 inches of snow after it was all done. Had a Blast plowing and salting, made some darn good cash payup . This morning it was 42 degrees and raining, who knows, maybe my prayers were answered lol..

    ps. this was the heaviest, wettest snow I've ever plowed.

    Hey Midwest...I noticed you have a V-box spreader...do you load it with bulk or bag feed it ? Just curious.
     
  16. bulk, definately!! it would take about 60 bags to fill it up, and I can get a full load of salt for about $80(60ton) and it only takes 3 minutes :cool: I'm also lucky to have T&N Feed and Seed about 3/4mile from me. They're one of the biggest salt suppliers in the midwest :p
