    Apparantly they come from the areas you guys are reporting no snow so far. They needed to find a new use for the plows--and paper is expensive!

    Maybe they could have sold advertising space instead? Kinda like the park-bench adverting....:D

    Derek ,
    Good thinking with the ads. you never know you might be on to something. How about the guys that paint their plows to look like a mouth, this guy I work with painted one on the company plow and it looked stupid! I asked him about when the owner of the company took the truck to plow his yard what would the neighbors think? The boss live in a very very good section of town, next to Drs., and Lawyers. He covered it with yellow paint after our discussion.

    You're talking about the North Shore we are in a little world of our own here. It's like living in a bad episode of Beverly Hills 90210.

    If they used real paint it will not come off very quickly.
    I painted USA in the middle of mine with red white and blue stars all around it. My then 9 year old daughter shot the paint and I held the stenches. She's now almost 13 and you could still read it, till I shot fresh paint over it this week. People used to do "Blade Art" around here all the time.
    I have seen:
    TEETH with EYES
    BLACK STRIPES in a pattern that looked like a COW CATCHER on a train

    Here is a plow from Lewis County NY. Alot of towns around here paint stuff on their plows, teeth on the deflectors, eyes and mouth on the beak end of a one way etc. Gives a little personality to the trucks.
