    It didn't amount to anything and it melted as soon as it hit the ground, but it was snowing for a few hours tonight. I'm not even close to being ready. I have to take my blade off my truck and mount it on a truck for one of my subs, put my new blade on my truck, and put new tires on my skidloader. Plow isn't in yet and neither are my tires. I have 3 commercial lots that take about 10-12 hours to push on a 2" snow with both trucks and my skiddie. All I have is my truck with my old blade if need be, My skiddie still has the tracks on it because I have to backfill a foundation end of next week. I have a bad feeling that I will be pushing snow in 3 weeks. I'm starting to feel like I didn't learn anything in boyscouts. Someone tell me they are in the same boat?:help:

    I have no plow, no brakes on my truck, and the power steering is out:realmad:

    Plow should be here Friday, and the truck is at the shop now getting looked at first thing in the AM.

    We had a bit of sleet last nite w/ mixed snow. Winter apparently is coming early this year. We have 17 Fall clean-ups to do and 2 of them are One full day jobs w/ 3 man crews!
    No plows are set but are all in working condition and so are the vehicles except for one that has to be re-registered (but thats not a mechanical issue).
    I've been building my salt quantities so, I'd be good enough if it started tommorrow.:rolleyes:
