    Yesterday, Nova Scotia got over 1 metre(3 feet) of snowfall. Another foot is supposed to fall today. I feel sorry for my brothers down East but it's only a matter of time until we get it out West- in March we generally get our big dumps..... /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif

    Yep, but when you're dealing with that much snow, 3" either way doesn't make much difference!!! /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    There's alot more snow machines down East. Out this way, IMHO, the chinooks melt the snow so fast that it's not worth spending the money on a sled. Lots of guys have 'em around here, though. They just don't get to use them very much.

    Hey yall, how ya doing. Ive put 56 hours in plowing since thursday at 530 am. tired as hell, this is the first time ive been on Ck5 since it snowed. we got a cun hair more than 3feet, plus it drifted all to hell. Ive been using a 980G cat, and the other 5 loaders we own are all out moving snow. Roads are pretty much one to two lanes. People are driving like idiots, and some roads still arent plowed. We have all our gravel trucks hauling snow, and it looks like we are getting another 6 inces of so, i doub weel even notice that.oh wel, see ya in a few days.

    It was a balmy 14C (57F)and sunny here today. We went looking for snow up at Hemlock Valley. Spent all day 'tubing' wearing a T-shirt and jeans...I actually got a little sunburnt.

    15 foot drift?? Dang, sucks to be you...but you must be doing well money wise with all those hours plowing!! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
