    Hey, it's Andrew here with J-Thomas.com checking in with everyone on here for Blizzard 2012.

    Are you plowing? What time were you sent out last night / This morning?

    How high are snow falls in your area?

    [​IMG] Here is where I'm located in Indiana. Our main distribution center is up in Novi Michigan which has lighter snow...

    Everyone out in plowing? What do you guys need for your plow? Can I help in ANY way?

    Here we are on the coast of NH and it has been raining since about midnight. 40 MPH winds and heavy rain. Not the 5-9 predicted as close to the storm as 6PM last night. Oh well, maybe the next one!

    I got my squeegee out and I've put soap all over my truck.

    By the time these heavy rains stop, and I squeegee the trucks surface, I'll be ready for the next car show.....

    I worked Ambulance till 11 PM. By that time the 6 inches was done and everything was plowed and salted. Maybe next time I can get to play.

    It started here in NWPA around 300pm Wed. and had heavy snow until about 2am Thursday. We had everyone out for a looong time. We ended up with 10+ inches, was out doing clean ups until about 10am this morning, and put away a delivery of salt. After being up since Wednesday around 730 am its time for bed!!!!!!
