    In Souther NH we got only 1 1/2 to 2 inches but it was like ripping up ice. I love that X-Blade. My comp was out in the next driveway to mer after i drove by to check his work. It wasn't down so you could see any black.. WOW know I know the X-Blade was worth the money

    Got about an 1 and 1/2 here. The roads are a block of ice everywhere. Only the main roads are down to pavement. The wind was terrible. I was at my neighbors farm out in his fields with his handheld weather station and there were gusts coming across the field of 65 MPH. Almost knocked me down!

    4 or 5inches here, drifts atleast a foot high. It was tough getting traction going up hill with a blade full though, the rain/sleet froze real nice to the tar...I love having my Xblade tho, took all of my drives right down to the tar, I can't wait to replace my 1/2 with a bigger truck so I can have matching Xblades...:yow!:

    We got 4-5 inchespayup in the Lakes Region, Went out this morning to check things and salt the parking lots, and find some snow drifts up over the plow
  18. We got 10 inches of snow in northwest Massachusetts on Sunday. Started by salting around 10 pm on Saturday and started plowing at about 1 am Sunday morning and worked until 3 Sunday afternoon. Went in again this morning at 2 am to scrape the roads off and push back the drifts and resalt the roads, left at about 9 am and went back into work this afternoon at 3 pm to dig out an ice jam in a river that was flooding into a basement. Tomorrow will probably be spent scraping the roads off again of slush and possibly picking up snow in the downtown area, and then opening catch basins as it is suppose to rain on Wednesday 1/18

    Very rough storm!
    Got caught completely off guard. PM Saturday news, weather, other friends in the plowing business, we were all wrong. Thought we would be lucky to just salt since it was 60 deg. 12 hours earlier.
    2 am snowing hard and blowing harder, thank god it was Sunday. We plowed for 12 hours. Had 3-6 inches of snow over 1 inch of ice everywhere. One sidewalk crew was a no-show, the other sidewalk crews worked 10+ hours. Then had to come back again Monday.
    Lost one truck early, brake line, another half way thru, clutch slave cylinder.
    ..........and I quit smoking on Christmas.
    Anyway I am glad it snowed, I just cant understand how not one weather service got this right, not even close.

    Yikes! Slave cylinder breaking sucks!! Mine broke three towns away one time, and the only way to get back was on state roads and through traffic lights!! A day I can't seem to forget but want to.
