That is exactly how it looks down here when it snows absolute pandemonium. I took last week off to put a plow mount and wiring on a truck but other than that everything was good to go. I have a guy that plows for me his own truck he hasn't even taken his spreader out of the pasture. I love the guys that wait for the snow to be falling before they try to start there spreader for the first time of the year. Mass panic

Ready to go!
If the winds come off the lake the right direction, should have plowable snow. It's officially winter.

We are looking to downsize. It's only me and the wife, no kids and 3000' ft of house.Its a walkout and we finished the basement.
The house behind the truck isn't ours. Ours is right next to it. We are on a private drive with 3 houses and we are in the middle.

This is the front of ours.....

It's not that hard and it's not all the time. Its called employees. If I know I'm out plowing all night into the next day I call the guys and tell them I won't be in or I will come in later.
We had a really big storm last March and I was in the truck for 49 hours. Nobody was going anywhere in the city let alone to work so I kept plowing. Nothing else to do.

Thanks Chuck.
It's a hard property to sell. It's on a 1/2 acre but a very small yard. Like really small. Takes 15min to mow it. Most of the property is wooded. The property taxes are a big turn off.(that's a small reason we decided to list it) It's going to take a special buyer. 4 people have bought this house in it's history, we just need to find #5. If you like wildlife, this is the house for you!

We would bring the squeegees Kevin.

It looks pretty promising in the next couple of days. Might have a salt run tonight. The heaviest will be to the west of us.

Have you gone out for anything yet?
