    Lake effect

    Gotta love lake effect!! Hit everyone twice, gas stations and townhomes 3-4 times. payup Drifiting was a PITA. I passed a city truck on its side in a ditch and some roads I was plowing snow with the blade all the way up! The warm up this weekend will be nice but Im not looking forward to the mess that is going to occur. Tom said colder is behind this warmup with a stormy pattern ahead.

    Timberseal, I passed one of your trucks plowing a lot at Napoleon and Cambel. I think its a bar/restaurant?

    Well its time for some invoicing and much needed sleep!

    Hey John

    Fun wasn't it :) about 36 hours of plowing here. We plow the dash parking lot and the new c21 building right there so yep that was me. That snow was relentless. I think it was putting down about 3 inches an hour for a bit there. On the radio (IN105 anyway) they kept saying all of Valpo was shut down but the Chicago Dash was clear and running with the buses lined up ready to go. I wanted a plug damnit :cool::D

    I went out at 10:00pm on Tuesday night and i know the other guys had been out since around 8:00am in Chesterton. We finished up at 9:00am Wed. then went back out at 10:00pm Wed. for clean up. I was only out about 8-9 hours, but the others probably had around 20-30 hrs. from Tuesday day till Wednesday night.....gotta love it.....

    hows that Hummer push snow? guess its pretty good sine theyre heavy, powerful, heavy frame etc.. neat pics! Ive NEVER plowed anything over 5" in the last 3 years :/ I cant wait for the day till i get to "work" one of our diesel F350s in some real snow! Ive never made a big snow pile or snow bank, never had the truck even "feel" like its pushing anything substantial yet.

    Id love to get a pile so big in window to the side that its manhandling the truck lol.
