    Whats up with it guys? I hear you guys in Colorado and the eastern plains are gonna get hit pretty hard. Theyre saying 6-18" depending on the elevation?
    Just curious if you guys are getting geared up

    Forecast 18" my area. I will have to sit this one out - plow backordered. My old CDOT crew is fired up - but I retired this year. At least I won't get a call @ 0 dark thirty.

    When I first moved up on the hill seemed like we would get a foot if we got an inch - twice a week - from Nov thru mid Mar.

    From mid Mar thru April it would really snow. One really good spring we got 12 ft.

    Downgraded to 8"-12" tonight and 5"-9" tomorrow. IH is chained and waiting, blade is on the Ram if I have issued with the IH. Just not looking foreward to getting up at 4AM to plow and be to work by 8AM. But so goes life at 9000'.

    Started snowing @ 3am.

    At 9am fed horses, shoveled deck - 16" and still coming at better than an inch an hour. Now the wind!

    Wish I had started earlier looking for a plow, could likely pay for half or better of it from this one blow.:nono:

    Lesson learned!
