they are. I have never been to a show though. I didn't know they had one They make the new inhouse employees watch there training videos but not the subs probably cause they wouldn't take the time. If they did maybe I would have any of those awful picture that I posted yesterday. That guy that did such a awesome job came from another zone. The office told me yeah has worked for us for years and the other area manager who complains just about every sub never said anything about him. Well... I am saying something, this is completely unacceptable snow placement. almost all of them fall under our 10 commandments of snow removal.

Yeah, I agree with ya. If any of my guys did that there would be hell to pay. They would be handed shovels and told to get at it. I have had guys moved over to my route to "help out". After a few inspections I usually send them back. If I'm going to have to redo it I might as well do it myself.
It's just amazing sometimes. In reality all we are doing is moving and melting frozen water. It's not that hard. Some guys make it so difficult on themselves.

Just noticed we hit 6000 views! Nice numbers considering it's s conversation between Shawn and Craig with Mullet throwing in a "that's cool" every few pages. Lol


There's got to be another snow pusher out there. We can't be the only crazy ones.

I like the pictures, I don't get to see snow so I really like it. I wish I had a transporter. I would beam up there every night and help push snow. Getting paid to have fun is the best kind of work.

That's cool

I try and get some interesting ones every time I'm out. The same snow gets boring.

Well hell in comparison to Craig I don't see that much snow either. At the rate we have been going it would take us 25 years to get what he gets in a year. If we got what they got here the would be on lock down. And the plow drivers here unless they are from somewhere else originally from some where else wouldnt know what to do with that kind of snow. We got maybe 1"-2in and these turds can't keep up with that. They put snow where it is not suppose to go they make pile but not as tight and high as they should be so they take up more space which means next storm they put it in the same place and there a wall of ice they can move with their plow so now they are taking up even more parking spaces . It is like they don't think that far a head they just want out of that round and 2 rounds later they are calling for a skid to move their piles or worse they don't and they just pile it wherever

We don't really start to sweat until snow accumulation hits about 15"+ at one time. Under that we can handle no problem.
We start plowing with the storm. Some companies wait for it to all come down, then they start plowing. Properties can get away from you real fast doing it that way.

This thread brings back memories.

WHen I lived in PA, I plowed snow from 1983 to about 1992.

I remember it paid really well.

I try to forget the bitter cold.

I love the pay part. The hours suck most of the time. I tell customers if the snow is flying you won't see me. But here it only has to get wet and cold for us to go out. And my guys don't have to get out of the truck other than maybe the spreader got cold and the have to pull it . But I am switching over to all electric so that shouldn't be a concern next year. As a area manager I get to work all my trucks from start to finish even if the guys are not doing anything. When we get anything over 2in and properties are still open we go do drive lanes then maybe drive lanes again if need be then we they close we go back out for a full push.

I love the next night clean ups. They usually start at midnight and go til about 6am.
It's laid back, casual and mindless. You get to go through the route, tuck corners in, push back piles and make sure the sidewalks are ship shape.
All the while listening to music, drinking good coffee and having fun with the guys on the radio.
