    Some guys (John!, Eric and the other Chicago guys, myself and the other Canadian guys) have got a lot of snow so far. Some others haven't. So how much did you get in December? How many times/days were you out?

    My unofficial snow total for December is 108cm which is about 42". So we're basically neck-and-neck with Chicago, Eric.

    We were out plowing 12 times (10 times "full-route") during the month, and salted 8 times (5 times "full-route").

    No major equipment problems to report...so far.

    We have been out 11 times (counting times for this thread as 1 entire snow event). Of course, during the Dec. 11/12 Blizzard here 14" snow and snow drifts 3'-4' deep (even with making continueing passess) we were out for several several days straight almost non-stop becasue after that Blizzard we received 2"+ snowfalls every other day for about a week straight. It was NUTS but at the same time it was AWESOME.

    Actually got to feel how JOHN feels every month every Winter every Year. You are one lucky dog John!

    41 days in a row now. Plus the three pushes prior to this starting. Some accounts have been plowed 60+ times. At the lakeshore we've had 94", at the Interstate (two miles south of the lakeshore and where the lake effect kicks in) we've had 175+.

    Now, we're incredibly busy with the nor'easter and the aftermath (stacking and hauling).

    Been a long winter.

    Where I live, we've had about 2". We were suppose to get clobbered with a 15" storm over the weekend, but it missed us.

    175"+...WOW! That's why we seldom drive to Cleveland to see my grandparents there this time of year. I-90 (I think it's I-90?) is always getting buried with snow and it takes forever to make the drive.
