    I will try to post pictures of this monster snow storm, where I estimate we got about 35 Inches of Snow overnight & it keeps snowing!:( There are cars strewn everywhere, I am stuck at my own house) Boys from amherst & clarence ... Be careful..it's probably the worst storm in the history of Buffalo! (South Buffalo That Is!)

    Dump truck for hire. Well that would be if I didn't have responsibilities here to my customers. They have to always come first as you all know.

    What is that meyer doing BURIED undernearth the drift??? what will your customers say, do? not very professional, this is one reason why i STRESS leave the plowing to the professionals.If you are any kind of a contractor , you would have had access to a loader or ho, AND STAY ON THE SITE, at least one, the largest you have ,were comin up with a loader, i'll make 3-4000.00 in a few days .... look 4 a 988 on the streets around midnite .

    I think you have more than enough snow to play with for now. Please send some snow here because I sure could use some of these!

    Hidles, I think that Meyer snowplow is buried from the snow blown from snowblower after the truck was parked.

    PetalsandPines, would you look at the pile that you made? I think you definely will need a loader because probably at the end of season your driveway will be full of piles with no place to put your truck? LOL

    Buffalo and other lake effect area are getting alot of snow because of the way the jet stream is traveling up and down. If you watch The Weather Channel, you could see how unusual the jet stream is traveling. With the jet stream traveling up and down, the low pressure is stuck in the middle, no where to go. So that's why they are getting alot of lake effect snow.

    Hey Hidles, give the guy a break. He posted some pictures and you attack him as be non professional. I guess we should all call you up when it snows 4 feet so you can save the day for all of the rest of us.

    "BS detector" is buzzing.................

    KSP1 - I wouldn't get in too much of a hurry to see that 988 headed up the street - unless US 988's are a lot smaller than the ones we have in Canada they're not exactly a "roadable" machine, especially in the city...................................................

    PetalsandPines - thanks for posting the pics. At least I get to see PICTURES of snow! ;)

    OH... MY... GOD!!!!

    What do you do with that much snow?!?!?! Wait... so THAT'S where it's all been going!!! We've had flurries everyday for the last week... but nothing to plow. Now we know the truth...

    (Good luck, and make sure and take care of yourself!!!)

    You got that right, Rob, as far as I know a 988 is too big to be on the street without flag rigs and permits, even in clear and dry conditions. From some of the comments I think we may be seeing another reincarnation happening.

    Great pics!. Reminds me the '78 storm we had here, only that one was only one day and a couple feet of snow. That one just about did my '62 Ford F-250 in, but it kept going for 3 days of havin fun. You guys in W.N.Y. will always remember this one!
