    I know what he is talking about. We have plowed 5 times already, salted i'm not sure how many and had 3 freezing rain storms. This sucks and is way to early. Most of the guys were not ready.

    I know, I was kidding. Has it been mostly wet and heavy snow?

    Just got in. We were called out by the town at 2pm, called in at 3am. I was driving a John Deer back-hoe with a 9ft p/angle Western. at 2:15 pm I got hit in the left corner of my blade by a 17yo kid in shorts and a t-shirt!!!!. Impact destroyed the car {he was wrote up for crossing the center line} and broke my left angle cyl in half. I went back to the garage and removed the cyl, capped the line, and pinned the blade hard right. Finished the storm and will pick up a new cyl in the morning.
    This was bound to happen when it starts snowing at noon on a work day. You would have thought these people never saw snow before.

    I just got in, its now 4:33 am. I had my worst plowing experience yet tonight. I went to do a drive at about 12am, this was my first time doing this particular drive, it is a driveway that leads to a culdesac type of turn around deal with a large garden in the middle of it. So I pushed some snow to the end of the driveway, the tires spun a little, the truck started to slid down the hill to my side a little and then a little more and a little more. Its not a severe hill but enough to put me in the woods or into about a 2-3 foot snow bank made by my pass. So I started digging it out and all that good stuff, and nothing worked.

    So onto the next step, I had no one to call at all to help me or give me a pull so about an hour later, as an absolute last resort, I called my mother with her honda ridgeline....:cry:lol

    So I hooked the tow chains up and started pulling it and of course the little honda was getting whiped around the place trying to pull the truck out and wasn't quite doing it. So after another hour or so of digging, It finally pulled it out but when it did, it pulled it right across the island in the turnaround with the garden!:dizzy:

    So of course that got really messed up, so I was like well at this point I'll just keep hauling it out of here. But of course things needed to get harder. I was about 6 inches from their well cap... and I was still REALLY stuck. So I dug, and dug, and dug, and put down about 5 bags of sands and icemelt in their garden for traction. And I then drove it out. After all this a few hours were lost, and a lot of energy. It was horrible. Is this why lots of you guys say you hate residentials? What would you guys have done in this situation? Is there anything I'm missing?

    Sry I don't mean to hijack this thread, but I saw the above story and thought it would be a good place for it.

    I left a note apoligizing about the garden, and saying there is no charge for this plowing lol. But I am thinking of dropping the contract with this one, because this driveway is absolutly rediclous. Its not even paved so the ice is horrendous.

    And heres another story. I was plowing our own parking lots and some moron decided to leave his car there overnight tonight, even though its in the lease that overnight parking is strictly forbiddon. Now I've told this guy time and time again not to do this. It has been an on going thing for a year or so. I left it till 11 and then called the tow truck and he didn't want to get out of bed, so I just "went a little fast" past the car. Heres the results, he'll have fun in the morning....

    Are you sure about that, Usually it takes people about 3 times to learn, and by the 3rd time, there should be more snow, so more snow means the more it will be burried.

    HAHA, I have done that myself on a few ocations. One time we new the guy but he continued to park right in the way, so we made his car dissapear. We ended up digging it out with the skid a couple days later, that was the last time he parked there though. We all got a kick out of it so it was OK.

    I'd say around 530AM was when it stopped being fun.
