    Just curious as to how many of you are REALLY looking forward to plowing? I actually enjoy it. I had to cut WAYYYY back on accounts this year due to the anticipated arrival of my new daughter (at least that's what the ultra-sound shows) on February 14th. I didn't want to have to leave any business unfinished if it's snowing when my wife goes into labor. But, I am still doing the car dealership I work at, so I'll still be able to make some money. Just ordered a polyurethane edge from Dino, so I'm also looking forward to trying that out....

    Alright, I'm done rambleing.

    I'm looking forward to plowing this season - gotta make a few $$$ somehow! :D

    I'll probably need to have someone remind me of my response to this thread in a couple of months, but I find that I like the challenge of getting the lot pushed into shape and usable for others.

    Besides, here in Ontario I can use blue rotator lights and be legal doing so!!! :p

    Blue huh? What colors do the police, fire, and paramedics use?

    Police, fire and paramedics all use red/white, volunteer firefighters responding in their own vehicles are allowed to use green, and yellow (amber) is the old standby for tow trucks/construction equipment/etc.

    One thing I forgot to mention in my earlier post - it's too darn c-c-c-c-old to skydive in the winter anyway - might as well be in a heated truck cab on my weekends!!! :cool:

    Myself I can't wait to get to it. I am expecting my new urethane edge for the 10' Western HW that is on the C-70 dump any day now and that will just about complete my prep work. The K-2500 with the 7.5' Western is all painted and ready to go also. Went to a local snow show yesterday and saw a lot of nice innovative new equipment but what I've got will do for this year. I just hope the winter pans out a little better than it did last year.

    Nothing like a few flakes in the air to get people off the sidelines and motivated.

    I'm excited. Put on the plow yesterday, and woke up to a couple of inches of the white stuff today. And it is still lightly snowing!!!!

    After plowing for the past 25 years, I can wait until Dec. 1 at least. It's not as exciting as it used to be, but the money is good. :D
