    Don't worry, this isn't another post about how much snow we've had and how I'm sick of it. I just thought I share a picture with everyone. This is the S-10 pickup that I like to drive around in between storms, so I can let the gas guzzling plow truck rest. We've had so many storms, with no breaks in between, I never had time to dig her out and plow the driveway back. I'm afraid she stuck there until spring! You can't tell from this angle, but there is a solid 4' chunk of hardpacked plow snow in front and as tall as the hood.

    I agree with you completely. I don't have the time or the will to take pictures between plowing and shoveling roofs. We lost one building due to the snow load even though I was shoveling and raking it regularly. We got 46" of snow between Feb 1st - 13th. I was really hoping for a weekend off but now the 1" forecast has changed to 4" - 7" for Friday night to Saturday. We had an excavator come in this past week to push the snowpiles to make room for more snow and the snow piles are now 12' - 15' high.

    I don't make money from plowing. I am a property manager for a camp and four houses so I get paid the same no matter how much it snows. For those who get paid by the inch or trigger, congrats to you. But I want it to stop.

    BTW, anybody else think we are going to have an easy, quick mud season? Its going to be a nightmare around here.

    Ha, quick mud season, now thats funny! ;) Down in the back yard, I looked this morning and I have a good solid 4.5' of untouched snow on the ground. That isn't going to melt quietly! Remember the flood of '87?

    This is great! Keep us posted on the progress! This reminds me of a webcam I view daily to see how much snow my place has in Northern Michigan. One day I can see the temp gauge and statues, the next it is buried in white. Just makes me wish I had some snow! Keep postings pics!

    It just looks like a clothes rack outside, wouldn't guess there was a truck under there! That was an awesome picture, I am so jealous!
