    After all the calls I got during thursday's storm I could say I want 2 F 350 pick ups with v-plows and pull plows.

    I just kept getting calls. Back in Mid November we decided no more new customers we were at out max. Well one guy wouldn't stop calling, so I told him the only truck that was in the area was kinda big for his drive. He told me to bring it over anyways. So I got my F 650 from one of my guys and drove down to his house. When I drove in the drive with the F 650 he left me alone, and didn't call again. During this little stunt by employee sat in my truck at the end of the road for 15 mins.

    Three, four inch snowfalls between now and then. And a reasonably sound, older GM pickup (3500 series) under the tree so I can get started on my ultimate plowing truck. Oh yeah, and customers who pay as fast as they want service.

    That's all, just some snow.
    I don't think I'm pushing it with Santa. Just some snow. The elves don't even have to build it. Santa can just have his wife call her dear old friend Mother Nature & tell her to have her son Mr. Heat Miser move off the coast the next time one of these nice storms comes along so his brother Mr Snow Meiser can do his thing here. I've been a good boy all year & Santa won't even have to fly his reindeer onto my dangerous roof. I won't even care if it has to be on Christmas Eve or Day, I'm not a picky kid. Pleeeaaase Santa? :(
