    Thank bud for the compliments, I really learned alot the last couple years about building a team, I've had alot of guys over the years and they were all pretty good but never really wanted to stick around so I've been improving things and trying to look at things in a employees view more, granted I'm on both sides of the table still after 10 years but, I really want to continue to build a team environment where all my guys are a big asset to this small company. It takes time and money to get to the point where you can keep guys around and I hope to keep improving for the crew and we can all suceed together.

    I've been exhausted lately, we had 3 plowable events last week, we did a full days moving job last week and some other small snow related jobs keeping us busy last week, and this week we had 2 plowable events and some other random jobs, and on top of that I work a 25-30hr week part time seasonal job at night in the winter time, I'm drained right now. I picked the wrong winter to work a part time job. Here's a pic plowing a lane down to a new house a contractor is building that we work for.

    This coming week if we have time we are going to haul the skidloader around to most of our locations to stack and or relocate piled up snow, we are running out of space at some of our locations, they are calling for some more snow next week so I hope to get to that soon.

    Got a call today to go plow this lane. I get there and it has drifts across and it's a nice steeper lane on schale and it's icy, well if you know whats it's like plowing with a dually, they don't have the best traction on hills. I call plow jobs like this an "o **** lane" because every time I'm plowing them I'm saying o ****! But I got it plowed and salted, it was fun, i enjoy the challenge but I should bring the chevy or ford here next time.

    We have had consistent 2-3 events a week making for some long nights for sure. It seems like they have all been us either getting close to a foot, or barely enough to plow or even salt. Sucks but the money is good.

    When your plowing do you notice a big difference in fuel consumption comparing your gas to your diesels?
    As always, you guys do some good looking work!

    Thank you! My Trucks all suck down the fuel during plowing, my dogde diesal uses alot of fuel plowing because its allways weighed down with salt, so it's been hard keeping them all fueled up right now considering we had 10 events and I just billed out, so money is tight lol.
