    well it started off me leaving work in and headed back home, I left work at 1:30 and i didn't get home till almost 4:00. its usually taked me about 45 minutes to get home. finally get home and go to pick up my shoveler and my street hasn't been plowed so i flip the truck into 4H and the hubs won't lock. so now there is 4" on the ground and i am getting calls like crazy saying that no one can get home because there driveway hasn't been cleared. so i shut the truck off and start it back up and the 4 wheel drive works. So i had off to my first account and get that done. Heading to the next one i was going around the corner and i hit some ice and slid off the road and hit a telephone pole with the plow. luckily i wasn't going that fast and when i hit the poll i was doing only 4 or 5 m.p.h when i hit. i get out to look and i tweak the moldboard. Nothing happend to the pole no one around the area lost power so it was fine. the plow still worked just a little bit slower. the truck seems to be fine it drives straight and the body lines and everything seem good. i plan on taking a better look at it tomorrow. then at 3:30 this morning i am plowing a restaurant with the kid i plow with and his pump stops working all together. So we are trying to get it working and as a last ditch effort we give the pump a few taps with a hammer and it starts working again. then pushing back a bank i got my truck stuck in the pile and have to dig the truck out with my hands ( dad took shovel out of the truck and didn't put it back in) I finished and 6:30 this morning and I went back out for a few calls to clean up some drives and i was back in around 5:00 of so. all in all it was a good night with a few mishaps we ended up getting close to 12" payup
