Thats awesome, I've only gone ice fishing a couple times, and I was a little bored to be honest. It may have been who I went with though, seems like you guys have a more luxurious set up than we did!

I live an hour from Toronto in Waterdown, which is technically part of Hamilton, but in the country. That is called Lake Medad, its a small spring fed lake near a golf course, maybe 12 acres, they use it for irrigation. It used to be a public park, but a few kids died skating in the winter and they closed it. You need permission to go and fish now. I built an atv trail from the corner of my property to the far side of it, and have a boat so I go as I please.

Snowed here today maybe 2 or 3 inches so work tonight!

Some shots of the storm, sorry for the Blackberry it has a horrible camera. The 205 still waiting to go out, hasn't been used once this season. A shot of the planting designs we got as an example and sidewalk duty in the snow tonight.

We've been in the same boat up until now! Its been a crazy winter. Well the 205 stays at our house until we get a big enough snow to actually utilize it. When (if) we get a big enough storm it stays at one of our accounts behind a locked gate and then we drive it around from that account to a few others that are fairly closeby. I'd say they're all within maybe 4 km radius, maybe less. For now its just better to keep it at home where it can't be tampered with. We don't use trailer during snow season it can be tough, we just drive it from here to the account which is maybe a half hour. That way we don't have to take off the Kage and put it on a seperate trailer.

My buddy has a 120" bucket for his skid, we've trailered it 12 miles from his house to the one large property we do every "storm" there's been this year.

Thats a big snow bucket! I see lots of people trailering skids and tractors around during storms but we don't have a flat bed float anymore, we only have the dump trailer. Which doesn't have drop axles so its high, getting the skid on is a pain without the 8 foot pusher, but now we gotta lift it over the sides, and we also can't lower back down because the trailer isn't wide enough. Which I think might be a ticket, because its sticking over the sides?

The yellow one? I was kinda shovelling with one hand because of my fracture and the snow was light so I used that big one, its okay, doesn't scrape down that well.

At least you have other work to keep you busy, we don't have much of that. I'm in school so that gives me something to do I guess.
