    It looks like we will hit my trigger tonight, and I will need to plow my resi's Christmas morning. Not a problem, I dont mind doing it. We are only gonna get 2-3 inches so its not like its gonna trap people in thier house, but I want them to still recieve timely service.

    I would like to start about 5am, and we run a snowblower. I would be done before 8am if I start then. Is that too early for Christmas morning? :help:

    not early enough. the kids that will be awake will think your santa. i would say four.
    you dont want to interrupt anyones christmas morning.
    kind of hard saying because it really depends on the storm. just dont interrupt anyones christmas morning.
    my two cents.

    Treat it as you would any other snowy day. Be out there bright and early, and have them cleaned up as fast and as early as possible.

    i would think that it being Christmas people would want their stuff to cleaned up even earlier then normal seeing how they may have guests coming to thier houses

    holiday or not just do what you feel is the right thing to do, your gonna get as many differant opions on here as there are people on here

    I figure if you are finished by 9, people won't complain. No one, in their right minds anyways, goes out before that on Xmas.

    If you are out early and you see sled with 8 funny looking horses.............give then the right of way.

    Wouldn't it be easier to shovel 2-3"?

    If your jobs are small enough to not need a truck/plow, wouldn't it be quieter with a 24" shovel?

    Ahhh. 2-3" of light fluffy Fargo snow would be much quicker with a big sweeping action of a nice 24" snow pusher type shovel. I can beat most blowers on this little light stuff. Add in their load/unload time and your talking a BIG time savings.

    Add to that, nobody knows your there. :sleeping:

    try to do it as soon as it stops get yourself home and let it be, i always say to myself if people can sleep while theres a garbage truck outside they can deal with a plow. happy holidays everyone!

    We didnt even hit my trigger :(. But Santa gave me a new lot to keep clear:) Got a call last night to open up a 60x140 lot for a building thats for sale and hasnt been done yet this season, and to maintain it. $150 to open, and $50 every 6" to maintain. It sounds like he's got some other places it town I can get too payup Thanks Santa

    Have a Great Christmas Everyone!
