    Just like Rodney Dangerfield you dont get no respect for your 16 hour day I guess. Now we will all get into who works harder and longer. Yippee, this should be fun.:dizzy:

    If I was a property owner, and it took 16 hours to be plowed after only a 5" snow fall I would be pissed. It sounds like its time for you to add more trucks to your route.

    I was out for 14 hrs. Started at 530 and made it home by 730. I was happy and a little tired.

    we had 5-6" here, took us 16 hrs too. i left a few plows set since the storm was mostly on a sunday and almost half of our accounts we closed or didn't open till noon. i worked 5 hours yesterday and one hour today by myself. i've put in around 40 plowing in the last ten days.

    we know who can wait and who can't. some of that time is spent "working with the storm" however you are right, i did get my azz chewed by two customers. should have had one more guy driving a truck.
