    thirty eight hours straight here, then four hours sleep and another twenty some. my brother-in-law was in charge of the sidewalk crew and taking pictures, man i'm gonna have to give him lessons. his pictures sucked so bad I can't use the most of them. I got the camera back and I told him, dam* man, it's got a screen, review the things to make sure you got what you (I) wanted.

    I started roughly 10pm tuesday night, and went non stop til 2am thursday morning. Then went home and slept for 3 hours, showered, and went back out at 5am til about 5pm yesterday pushing back drifts and resalting....added up was roughly 60 hours in the truck for this storm. My 2 subs logged in about 30 hours each. Sure did feel good to sleep last night. You cant beat the pay tho when the white gold falls from the sky, this was a very very profitable storm for me. Hope everyone made out as well as I did......now lets get another storm just like that, nice light powder, spread out over a day and a half. payup payup payup

    I am way short of everyone else, but I logged 14 hours from Wednesday morning through Thursday morning. Then Thursday afternoon I did another 3 hours, and then this morning I pushed back some of my piles and got a call to go do a driveway that had not been done yet (owners are selling). That was a fun one. About 8" of frozen slush. So I did another 2 hours total today. So all together I did 19 hours, not including the two hours washing and putting everything away.

    Well, first day was spent preparing for the storm, loading salt, changing fluids etc... but not entirely straight work... but kept going thru the storm, up for 39 hours straight (the last two were a quickie Valentine's dinner with my date) and then a 3 hour crash in bed. Up again for another 12 hour shift, followed by a 6 hour sleep and another 12 hour shift... after that I stopped keeping track, I was getting so out of it...

    Still dealing with drifting the past two nights too....

    I'm looking forward to a good, long sleep...!!

    Hey guys: I'm with Clncut and F250Man. I had 19 pushing as a sub and about 4 pushing my own stuff (driveways and a couple p-lots.)

    I give you guys alot of credit. After 19 hrs, my head was just spinning, I couldn't even stay focused when driving.

    So, MAYBE I could've gone longer, but I know my limits pretty well and said "enough's enough" I had to get some sleep. I get paid hourly, so there was no point in wrecking my truck or worse. What a week!!

    i went 43 strait hours with a 1 1/2 hour cat nap in the middle. believe it or not that hour and a half did wonders. i had 60 hours total logged in. the last pan handle hook we got 3 or 4 years ago netted 18 inches, i had no help and one truck at that time, i went 72 hours strait!! that was my most miserable plowing experience ever, the heater core in my truck was plugged so i had only enough heat to barely defrost the windshield, my feet were soaked and i was froze not to mention 80% of all the town's electric was out for the good portion of a week i tried to sleep some and the phone would not quite ringing.never again!! i wouldn't wish that on my worst enemy. any how we got about 2" today did some salting and gonna go scrape everyone tomorrow morning. later, pete

    How do you guys go that long? I stayed awake for 36 hours straight once and thought I was going to die!:D If I get so tired that I can't concentrate or I am liable to hit/break something it is time to go to bed. Snow can wait.
