    so i'm one of the unlucky ones who get to stay in Rochester while the boss and a few key others go to MD to help out, anyway the word is chaotic. 5 lane roads reduced to 3 lanes with abandoned cars all over. poor communication, my boss has moved the same piles of snow 2-3 times, and now they have a snow melter on-site at first my boss was thinking this thing is pretty cool (that usually ends up with a new piece of equipment in the yard) but what has happened is all the snow being trucked in is full of garbage, so its jamming up the hopper and someone has to keep jamming a pitchfork into it to pull it all out....

    ah well, sorry no picts, just bumming because i'm left behind.
