    I'm going to clean some equipment, work on the books, have dinner at Denny's. Maybe visit my daughter. Standby for plow action. Going to give my guys the day off from being on call, unless we get dumped on. Then it's all hands on deck.

    If we get snow everybody is working.

    My guys were pissed Dec 25 last year when I was banging on their doors at 2am. Thought they could get out of plowing by not answering the phone.

    They were mistaken.
  5. we are going out of town for a couple of days, mini vacation.

    Meh...those make for good memories. Hunched over the truck heater at 4am xmas morning with an x-large coffee sounds alright to me...especially if the mother-in-law stays at home.

    I think the wives were more pissed off than anything. It was a decent blow and we were out a little over 18 hours.
