    if theres snow in the forcast I try to go to bed ASAP. Around 8-9. I wake up for my other job all summer at 4am, so I'm able to go to bed early. Usually if I go to bed around 8, it doesn't snow enough.

    If I'm out to see a movie, christmas shopping, etc... I get to bed around midnight and get the call around 3am.

    Can't sleep, too excited!! Until your out there 24-36 hours. Then sleep finds you.

    I sleep 10am-2pm daily.. Try to keep this routine.. I'm up all afternoon to get work done with my day crews and around the house/shop while its light out. Then I'm at my girlfriends from 7-11. Then paperwork from 11:45-1:30.. Page employees in around 1am if its snowing. Then I'm either on the road or doing more paperwork until about 7am..

    This is our 12th season in snow, and i am now able to sleep before a small event, 1-3". If the forcast is for a big storm, forget it, just too pumped up:cool:

    I agree with you all, when theres snow on the way i am way too pumped up to sleep. But when I know its gonna be a big one i at least try to sleep, every time i fall asleep i seem to get the call an hour later saying start your engines lol

    I try to get to bed a early as possible, but have a gazillion things running through my head keeping me up. Ince I get to sleep, the alarm usually wakes me up about 2 or 3 in the morning. Then it's set for every hour or two.

    I cant sleep either, too pumped up in anticipation. But after 24 hours I'm ready for a nap.:waving:

    All depends on the day here. If its a weekend, and its a night storm, I most likely dont get home from hanging out with my freinds and girls and such until 1-2am, and if its done snowing by 2 or 3, i start then. But on weekdays, ill go to sleep around 6 or 7pm and wake up around 2 and try to get everything done before 8am.
