    We got about a foot here too. Started Saturday morning at 2:00 finished Saturday evening at 6:00. Went back out Sunday morning at 2:00 and just finished at 1:00. 167 residentials, about 10 commercials and still counting. Three screaming kids under the age of 4 and an unsympathetic wife are going to make this a long day.
    Hope everyone in Chicago had a good weekend too.

    We finally got dumped on here in Cedar Lake!!! Started Friday night, and snowed and drifted pretty good. We got about 10 inches. I had just cleaned up my last job and was headed to drop my buddy off then go home to sleep. On the way to his house the lake effect stuff kicked in . And didn't stop ! We got another 21 inches of the white stuff on Saturday afternoon so that took a long time for me to clean up. Went to bed around 5:30 AM and got up at 9:00 AM, took a shower, ate breakfast, then plowed until 10:00 PM Sunday night. Just got in. I started the season with the same 4 jobs (accounts) that I have had for about 5 years. Today I picked up 4 possible res. driveway and 5 commercial jobs. Good thing I put the plow/commercial insurance on the truck the night of the big storm. Now I can afford to pay for the bloomin' insurance because of the new full time accounts now. I was going to give the stuff up until I picked up the jobs today. I also pickup up part of a Meyer mount for the Ram, so I will be putting one on the new truck for sure so I can sell the Ramcharger.

    I'm rambling ! I need sleep. Be safe.

    Guys try Monster with the green writing on the can. To me it taste a lot like red bull and has a little better kick. The can is like 20 0z and you can get it on sale 2 cans for what 1 redbull cost.
