Finally had a snow fall that required removal. Approx 4 inchs.
Started at 10:00 pm fri. and just returned home at 5:30 am sat.
New truck and plow did great, driver just needs to get used to new control (Western Cab Command).
Good to hear! First plowable snowfall here too (I mentioned it in my thread "Unfamiliar fluffy white powder falling.................") ours ended up being about 6" total.
Other areas nearby got more - one of my co-workers at my full-time job lives 1/2 hr west of here and they have 12" now and still falling. Unfortunately, his 1/2-ton slid into the ditch next to his driveway on the way in to work this morning.......................
I have that weastern controler to. I was thinking about making a snow plow video game and use it as a game stick since it is not being used for anything else right now.
Glad to hear someone is pushng snow.
Glad to hear some more of us are finally plowing. Santa brought my 4 year old the Tonka Construction computer game with realistic controller. It has a set up that you strap to the key board that has a steering wheel, forward\reverse lever, right\left lever & up\down lever similar to a real loader. You can use a crane, bulldozer, excavator, dump truck, front end loader & more? to do different projects. I tried the excavator & it was somewhat realistic & fun. I hear you can also plow snow at the airport. I was thinking also that there should be a computer\video game for us snow nuts to plow snow. After looking at the Buffalo pictures, I think I may put the game in while he's asleep so I can plow some snow without him interrupting me to take his turn constantly There certainly isn't any real snow here to plow, so I might as well practice.
Wow, it sounds like your four years old boy were a very good boy this year. If your boy keep it up, maybe Santa will get him a real loader someday when he's old enough and drive it like a pro.
It would certain be nice if there is a snowplowing video game. I think there is a difference between video game and stimulator. I think we would want a snowplowing software that is more of a stimulator than a video game. Stimulators is more realistic and for practicing. Such as like the Boeing airplanes stimulators that Microsoft sells. But how are we going to get someone like Gates to make it?
Hmm... If there was such a game thay need to make it multi user so we can compeat against each other or work in teams.
Plus thay would need to have a verity of trucks and plows to choose from. And thay need to have break downs.
Sima could include it with thier membership as a traing tool.
We're not getting clobbered like Buffalo, but we're stil getting a decent share of the white stuff (finally) - out last night and will be again tonight to stay ahead of "da snow". Been snowing fairly steady this afternoon at about 1" per hour.
