That was almost a perfect storm for us. I even brought my buddy who plows with a truck with us on three rounds. I think he might not want to play that game next year.

The view of the storm depends on what type of clients you have. We were able to get three rounds on it. I made a great deal of money so I am happy. Some people not so much.

Actually most of our accounts got 4 salt runs this week. I like number ones and we do not use a plow truck we only do sidewalks and salt on parking lots. Posted via Mobile Device

I'm on the fence as to weather I miss it or not. I enjoyed talking to Dave on the phone from my nice warm chair though. =) Hope you guys have a busy year pushing snow! I would imagine it'll be like 2/3 years ago when we had 3 huge storms & nothing else but a few dustings.
