Here we got about 10" down, weren't supposed to get more then 2-3, winds up, the weather people just revised their forcast to a heavy snowfall warning an hour ago. Going to bed it's going to be a long nite.

Fri. a.m. Rain turning into ice. Salted half the route.

Fri. p.m. Snow showers accumulating over an inch by afternoon rush hour. Did sidewalks and salted lots at stores with evening hours.

Sat. a.m. Plowed and salted complete route, 2-3 inches.

Sat.p.m. Forecast for an inch overnight. Again, salted and did walks at shops open Sat. night.

Sun. a.m. Woke up to 7-8" of fresh white stuff. Plowed and salted the entire route. Did a few one time plows.

Sun. p.m. REST


The damage- One fried control box for electric salter. Was able to "hot wire" it to complete the route.

One travel mug was found to have a defective lid. Found this out the hard way.

Thought of a few new items for the "been in the truck too long thread".

This was a heavy wet snow of 6-7" here in SE PA. It rained all day Saturday and then changed to wet snow Sat. nite and got real cold. Didn't get really snowing until 2AM Sun. Stopped around 6AM. I was out a 5 AM and it was a sheet of ice under the 7" of semi heavy snow. Traction was a problem until 10AM. Also this snow stuck like glue to the plow (BOSS) Even shaking the wings didn't free it. Had to shovel off 200lbs of snow a few times from the blade! Never had this happen before. I guess it was wet underneath and a cold blade = bad combination! I will try to clean and wax it next time. All in all though, a good weekend snow!
