We salted like crazy.....went through about 25 or so tons, alot of our stuff is high-risk customers, so we just kept everything wet. Most properties got salted 3 times....im still going to go out later tonight and do some touch-up work were the cars are now

Today was my easiest day yet for snow. Only took 8 hrs. It was barely 2'', and that is the minimum I go out at.

The brand of my amp is Directed. 600watts. I bought it at ABC warehouse. Go on Crutchfield.com and enter the type of truck you have and it will show all the customized speakers that fit. My box is specifically made for the quad cab Ram. It has some serious bass. It is $400 on Crutchfield.com, but I bought mine on Ebay brandnew for $300.

I think my trailers might be spoken for. I'll know by tomorrow.

As I understand it, for what I drive I only need a chauffer's license. It was real easy to get, test was a breeze, right off of the info sheet.

Look here: http://www.michigan.gov/sos/0,1607,7...5395--,00.html



Snow was easy today, but wet and slushy in some spots. I almost prefer a bit colder temp to make things fluffier. I wouldn't mind seeing a couple more snow falls this month.

Well I got back from indiana a few hours ago... HOLY crap the drive back was fine untill I hit the lansing area around 127! the freeway was pure ice. I tryed to go fifty and I almost lost my trailer! had to go 40-45 for about 25 miles. there were cars all over in the ditch and the median it was crazy. but i made it back in once peice and now i have a nice trailer. it is a 6x10 double back doors and a 32" side door with a vent and two dome lights and switches and a dimond plate rock gard. for only 1750 out the door. so i got 50 extra bucks to help pay for taxes and plates.
