    Ok,... I guess it's high-time to get this started again for another year,... I've actually been plowing in earnest for a number of weeks already,... even with our first plowable snow coming in a little later than normal this year. We got our first dustings in early October,... but nothing to speak of,... which is a good thing, because then it got cold & the ground froze up good, so when I did start up, the ground is hard,.. the snow is dry & fluffy,... just like it should be,... no wet heavy mess to deal with. But then, as November came in, I went on a deer hunt for a week out on the islands where I fish in the summer, and ended up dropping my camera in the ocean,... :realmad: so I lost my first bunch of pictures from the beginning of this winter. In any case, as I start this out,... I only have a few shots of some jobs from the past week or so,... but let the fun begin,.... wesportpayup

    I've run both the Boss & the Blizzard quite a bit so far, and both are doing good. I took the Blizzard apart earlier, just to inspect it & repair a couple of cracks that were starting,... so hopefully it should be able to put in another 7-month snow plowing season again,... :bluebounc

    Well, last time I checked, Alaska was still on the same continent as the rest of the states, so I guess I qualify,... but it's only been down to -14° (-26° C) so far, so even the boys & girls from NY could handle that,.... Thumbs Up

    Our snow as of now is about knee-deep, maybe a little more in some places, a little less in others,... just depends how deep into the mountains you go,...

    The 2000 Chevy is going to do most of the jobs this winter tho,... in places I have piles higher than the truck already,... and other than driving a spike into one of my new snow tires and destroying it, (left rear), all is well so far,....

    Great pics, I hope we are lucky enough for the ground to freeze before we have to plow, it has done nothing but rain for the last 4 days every where is ankle deep mud.
